The idea behind Medical Practice Administrators (MPA) was created in 2007 by its founders, Ed Rasmussen and Tim Prusse. Our experience, though, goes back even further. After graduating from Brigham Young University with bachelors and masters degrees in accounting, Ed served various tax clients of the firm Alexander Grant.
In 1990, Ed’s brother-in-law, an OB/GYN doctor, asked him to come manage his practice in Kissimmee, Florida. And there began the accumulation of medical practice knowledge and success. After 15 years and after becoming one of the top performing OB/GYN practices in the country, Ed was lured by a General Surgery practice to Provo, Utah where the success continues.
In 2007, an ENT practice in Provo also sought Ed’s expertise. Ed performed an evaluation and recommended that Tim Prusse be brought on as the practice administrator. Tim had received bachelors and masters degrees in accounting and worked as a financial statement auditor at the accounting, tax, and consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. With the great results continuing at the ENT practice, Ed and Tim developed the concept of a medical practice management and consulting company that delivers the same results to other practices. MPA has now grown to include administrators at many medical practices.
