There are times in your life when you come across an opportunity you just cannot pass up.  Missouri Hawthorn AAHAM chapter is just that for me.  Even though I have not been involved with AAHAM for a long period of time, I have an over 20 year career focused on revenue cycle and the healthcare industry.

The same reasons I love the industry are aligned in so many ways with why AAHAM is important.  We are in an industry that is engulfed in constant change.  For those of us that work in the field, it is hard enough to complete daily tasks and impossible to stay on top of all the other changes such as pricing transparency, alternative payment models not to mention an upcoming election that could terminate Obamacare and take us in a completely other direction. It takes a special type of person to do what we do and have the passion to get it done.

Our chapter has come to face a challenging time. Our membership has steadily decreased and our sponsorships have dropped over the past several years. I am afraid as an organization, we have lost the faith in many who used to love us and value what we stood for.  Because of this we have come to face a time for change. As an organization, we need to become the resource for our Missouri members again.  A resource to assist them to not only succeed in the market today, but to also thrive and be everything they can be!

In order to succeed at this challenge I have been working with our National Leaders. We are excited about the game plan we have created to build your chapter up to become the powerful revenue cycle and patient access resource for its members.

We have some very exciting initiatives in the pipeline on its way to you. To mention a few:

  • A newly designed Website
  • Membership contests
  • Certification opportunities
  • Education and networking opportunities (live and electronic)
  • Student program
  • And so much more!

I cannot wait to introduce all the exceptional individuals we have pulled together to unite and move our chapter to the next level. So the question is, do you want to join us on this adventure and make history happen and RAISE THE LEVEL of your chapter?

We will have our first chapter strategy/leadership meeting on 6/20/2016.  If you are interested in participating with the chapters on a committee or in a leadership role contact me today at cwerner@anderscpa.com or 314-655-5561.
