Yesterday, 5/30/12, I had the opportunity to meet with Rep. Scott Rigell's staff in his Virginia Beach office in support of AHDI's Hometown Advocacy Week. I met with his District Director and the caseworker who handles Medicare, Medicaid, V.A. and other healthcare issues. They seemed genuinely interested with everything I had to tell them about medical transcription, meaningful use, the EHR, Health Story Project, MT Week, workforce development, etc., and all that YOU do on behalf of patient safety. The information I gave them as a handout will be passed on to their office contact in the D.C., and they asked that I keep them informed of new developments regarding the topics we discussed. I must say that my previous AHDI Advocacy Summit experiences in D.C. helped me feel more comfortable in making this trip to my representative's local office!
Tue, 15 May 2012
Greetings from your National Leadership Board (NLB)! Our meeting on May 10th was held with the following highlights brought to you as another communication outlet to keep you informed of tasks we are working on.
BOARD UPDATES: We are pleased to announce Jill Devrick as the newest member of the national leadership board. Jill currently works as Product Solutions Advisor for 3M, is the chair of the Managers/Supervisors Alliance, and joined the NLB in April 2012 to fulfill the board position and term vacant by Lisa Tunzi’s resignation. We welcome Jill as a director at large. AHDI’s governance and component association policies and procedures were reviewed and the updates went to a motion, and were passed. Working closely with the board, the Bylaws committee submitted recommendations for updates and those were passed as well. A summary of the changes will be posted on the AHDI website and distributed by email to our component officers very soon.
EXTERNSHIP WHITE PAPER PROPOSAL: Betsy Ertel, AHDI-F, chair of AHDI’s Educators Alliance Steering Committee, presented on the proposal for an externship program white paper. She shared the many benefits of publishing and providing an excellent road map for bridging the gap for students graduating from an approved school to becoming a work-ready MT. A motion was made, seconded and passed to proceed with this well-thought out and much needed white paper.
FUTURE ROLES SURVEY: AHDI President Sherry Doggett presented on the findings of this survey, which was conducted in conjunction with Gary David, PhD, of Bentley University. It provides excellent guidance for further analysis of the data gleaned from the survey, and AHDI’s Managers/Supervisors Alliance will work through next steps in evolving the data into potential future roles in healthcare documentation.
ACE UPDATE: There is popular demand to continue on with a well-attended session from last year’s ACE and that is The Great Debate. Topics to include in this year’s debate were discussed and we are looking for additional subject-matter to make this year’s debate another lively exchange. ACE 2013 is confirmed now for the Buena Vista Palace in Orlando, Florida. We are inviting our members to help select a theme for this event. We are all very happy to be returning to Florida for our annual convention.
FINANCES: Bonnie Monico provided a treasurer’s report on current outstanding accounts payable along with continued successful reductions to overall debt.
STRATEGIC PRIORITIES: Karen Fox-Acosta, CMT, AHDI-F, President-elect, proposed a special one-hour meeting to cover the strategic plan and priorities in order to give it adequate time for review, update
and revision. Following the Board’s review of the draft at the special meeting, we will seek input from AHDI member volunteers before the updated plan is finalized.
MEANINGFUL USE STAGE 2: Fox-Acosta updated the NLB that AHDI has supported the Health Story Project comments, which were submitted to ONC (Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT).
OFFICER ELECTIONS: The timeline for this year’s NLB officer elections will be during the board meeting at ACE. Letters of intent are to be submitted to Sherry Doggett, AHDI President, by July 30, 2012.
NEXT: The next regularly scheduled NLB meeting is June 14, 2012, and as always, gallery members are welcome to participate.
Happy Spring everyone!

Dear AHDI members and supporters,
On behalf of the National Leadership Board, we are delighted to announce the appointment of our new Chief Executive Officer: Linda G. Brady, CAE. Many of you know Linda. She joined AHDI in September 2009 as Director of Member Relations and has been leading the organization as interim CEO since October 2011. As interim CEO, Linda has played an integral role in navigating the association through a continued period of change. She's worked closely with the National Leadership Board on strategic and business planning to ensure that our association and members are well positioned in the evolving and shifting healthcare documentation arena.
Managing not-for-profit professional and trade associations has been Linda's passion for nearly 20 years. Prior to joining AHDI, she spent eight years at the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering as Director of Membership Development and Director of Marketing. Before moving to Tampa, Florida, Linda held positions at two Washington, DC-based associations, the Association of Teachers of Preventive Medicine and the Labor Policy Association.
Linda has been an active member of the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) since 1998. She earned her Certified Association Executive (CAE) credential in 2004 and has been a contributing author and editor on ASAE publications in membership development and component relations.
At the same time, we are pleased to announce Wendy Carriegan as AHDI's Chief Operating Officer. Wendy has served as AHDI's interim COO for the past six months. Working in partnership with Linda and the Board, Wendy has been critical in directing, managing, and leading AHDI through our recent changes. She provides expert knowledge, skill, and oversight in finance and business operations for the association. Based in AHDI's Modesto, California, office, Wendy began her tenure with AHDI in 2002 and most recently held the position of Director of Administration. She will be celebrating her 10-year anniversary with AHDI in November!
Please join us in congratulating Linda and Wendy in their new executive leadership positions with AHDI.
AHDI President 2011-2012

Here is a link to a Boston Globe article published on Monday, 4/30/12, regarding EHRs and patient safety. Hope you'll take time to read it. Would love to hear any feedback you may have about the article.
Thu, 26 Apr 2012
Below is a message from our Interim CEO, Linda Brady, CAE. Exciting information!
April 19, 2012
These are the emails I enjoy writing—delivering good news to our members and supporters. In my last letter to you April 4, I wrote:
Extensive work has been underway to ensure AHDI flourishes in this new environment for our members—our shareholders and stakeholders. We are leaving no stone unturned as we work to strengthen AHDI’s finances and ensure we are delivering relevant and timely benefits, products, and services. Expenses have been trimmed, our product development and member benefit pipeline is being enhanced and expanded, our strategic priorities are being reevaluated and updated, and contracts are being renegotiated. We operate on a shoestring budget; however, that does not stifle progress and innovation. To that end, we have exciting updates to share regarding AHDI's Annual Convention & Expo (ACE 2012). Our goal has been to make ACE more affordable for our members and we have been renegotiating our agreement with the JW Marriott Indianapolis, which was originally booked in 2008. The hotel has offered us unprecedented discounts and options to make ACE 2012 more affordable for both you and AHDI.
ACE 2012 attendees staying at the JW Marriott Indianapolis will receive these great perks:
1. NEW! $25 daily credit per room toward food and beverages purchased at the hotel, including concession stands in the ACE exhibit hall. Our discounted group rate is $175 per night plus tax. The VIP lunches on Friday and Saturday are being replaced with lunch on your own, during which you can use your daily credit toward food purchased within the hotel.
2. NEW! Free Internet access in your hotel room for your entire stay (regular rate: $12.95 per day).
3. $8 off the daily onsite parking rate (regular rate: $28.00 per day).
4. Entry into the raffles previously advertised as part of the ACE VIP Program. The JW Marriott Indianapolis has also agreed to provide free wireless Internet access in the ACE meeting rooms and exhibit hall (a $4,000 value). So you'll be able to stay connected the entire time. To reduce AHDI's cost to hold ACE and our potential liability of not filling enough hotel rooms, the JW Marriott is lowering our room block commitment, reducing the minimum amount of food/beverages we must purchase, and discounting our costs for food and other services.
Because we have received these concessions from the hotel and modified the food events for the convention, AHDI wants to pass our savings on to you by lowering our registration fees by $75 and extending the early-bird rate until August 6, 2012. If you have already registered for ACE 2012, you will receive a refund for the difference. Our new registration fees for ACE 2012 are:
Student, Associate Student & Post-graduate Members – $225The program will kick off Wednesday evening with a welcome reception in the exhibit hall. Educational sessions will be held Thursday – Saturday. There will be close to 40 sessions to choose from and you can view the revised schedule of events online. Please note that the change in schedule also includes moving the awards ceremony to Thursday, August 9, and there will no longer be a banquet on Saturday evening.
Individual Professional Members – $285
Associate Members – $395
List Price – $525
Register online (click now to see the added bonus for registering early)
As part of our renegotiations, the hotel has agreed to setup concession stands for lunch on Thursday and breakfast on Friday in the exhibit hall, where you can use your $25 daily credit received from staying at the JW Marriott. This new format is part of reducing the master account liability for AHDI while giving attendees added flexibility in their food selections.
We recognize that you may be able to find a lower hotel rate nearby; however, this hurts AHDI financially if we do not fill our contracted room block. If you would like to find a roommate, there's a group setup on ACE365.org called "Attendee Resources Group."
We understand that as you've been reading this, you may have questions. We've started a list of frequently asked questions to help provide a place where you can get quick answers. And, as always, you can contact our staff anytime toll free: 1-800-982-2182 (direct: 1-209-527-9620) or by email: email@example.com.
This will be the event of the year you won't want to miss. We hope you will join us for ACE 2012 in Indianapolis!
Linda G. Brady, CAE
PS: Watch your email inbox for details regarding ACE 2013! We will be in Orlando, FL, where we'll celebrate AHDI's 35th anniversary!

This message brings spring greetings to you from your National Leadership Board, which last met April 12. This publication is one of the NLB’s opportunities to share with you, the individual member, what work and decisions are made by this board.
Highlights from this meeting were exciting updates to the plans for both the 2012 and 2013 Annual Conventions and Exhibitions (ACE). This year’s event will be in Indianapolis August 8-11, and specific new details and deals will be broadcast to members within the next few days. As well, hotel and precise date negotiations are almost completed for ACE 2013, which will be held in Orlando, Florida (exact dates to be announced soon). Stay tuned to www.ACE365.org for more details and future updates.
New practices/projects: A discussion was held about the relatively new workflow solution that involves partial dictation/narrative in the EHR. Doggett reported great success at her facility with their healthcare system, with healthcare providers being allowed to dictate and have transcribed certain portions of the records, satisfying both their desire for narrative information capture and the need for using time-saving technologies. The board will look for ways to capture stories around this topic that display the continuing important role healthcare documentation specialists play. The Future Roles Survey is pending board review, and more discussion will be held around future articles on the topic of dictation practices.
Finances: In financial matters, Treasurer Bonnie Monico, CMT, AHDI-F, reviewed the year-end 2011 compilation report and presented the NLB with a revised financial budget. The Board approved the revised budget that accommodates the loss of revenue from CDIA for administrative support (that organization recently ceased operations) but further included new revenue streams and adjustments. A full accounting will be provided to members in a future issue of Plexus, as well as on the website and at the annual business meeting at ACE.
Interim CEO Linda Brady emphasized that while the organization still has financial challenges, as does almost every organization in this time of financial upheaval, there are many positives to report and AHDI does not anticipate any type of closure either in the short-term or long-term.
Doggett commented on the commitment needed by members to continue their participation in AHDI for the success of the profession, practitioners, and students.
Board positions and officers:
President Sherry Doggett has accepted the resignation of Lisa Tunzi, CMT, AHDI-F, as a director-at-large on the board and the board will move as per bylaws direct to fill her term. The board thanks Lisa for her years of service to the association and will look forward to her participation on another level. Since Lisa also served as secretary to the NLB, an election was held and Susan Lucci, RHIT, CHPS, CMT, AHDI-F, was elected to the position for the remainder of the officer term, which extends to September 1, 2012.
To Be Continued: Work continues in subgroups of the NLB to
Examine our strategic priorities and align them with financial resources.
Examine the appropriateness of our involvement in Meaningful Use, Stage 2, comments.
Review and update where needed governance policies for the NLB; the Bylaws committee will also be performing a review.
Each director is assigned as board liaison to at least one committee, special interest group, alliance, or taskforce. Reports will be expected for inclusion on the May agenda.
Next: The NLB meets the second Thursday of each month via webinar. The next meeting will be held May 10. Gallery members are welcome. Contact Miranda Chalabi (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request the webinar link.

I am putting together a team of volunteers for a short-term project to review the recently released MU2 proposed rules from ONC. Our goal is to identify areas in the proposed rules that directly or indirectly affect our profession and then provide a summary of findings to the Advocacy and Alliance steering committee, the AHDI board and ultimately our members through Membership Matters. The outcome of the project will also help generate an open-comment letter template with plans to have our leadership, component leaders, members and colleagues submit to ONC during the open comment period which ends in early May. The project duration is starting now and will probably run through the end of April.
My email is listed below. Please contact me to volunteer and/or inquire about the project.
