I do not know about you but I am excited about being back in person for many of our professional events. Our chapter held our first in person event, since COVID, for the Fall Conference in September 2022. At that 2-day event gathering with other Revenue Cycle experts was so exhilarating. We not only received an updated from the Missouri Hospital Association but also heard speakers on topics such as the No Surprises Act, Revenue Integrity and CDM Strategies, and Prior Authorizations. Just one month later, I boarded the plane to attend my first Annual National Institute! There I was able to meet people from all across the nation. I will say AAHAM has a very hospitable group.
As I start my 2023-2024 term as the chapter President, I am excited about the momentum and growth our chapter is experiencing. Our Board of Directors is working hard to grow our chapter and provide valuable content for our members. Follow our events page to stay current on what is to come.
If you are contemplating joining AAHAM please check out the many benefits both national and local membership provide here or reach out to me personally and we can talk. Since joining in 2019, I have not only grown professionally but personally as well. I look forward to hearing from you or seeing you at one of our events soon!
