A Word from Your National Leadership Board

This month, new and returning NLB directors renewed our commitment and continued our work for AHDI with President Susan Dooley taking the reins. A first order of business was to finalize the 2014-2015 Work Plan for Volunteer Groups and Staff.

The Work Plan provides membership, leadership, volunteers and staff a guide to practical action in implementing AHDI’s overall Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan, as its name suggests, lays out in broad strokes the association’s priorities in accordance with our organizational vision and mission. The Strategic Plan is periodically reviewed and revised by the Board to ensure that AHDI remains at the forefront of issues in healthcare documentation integrity; the current edition of the Strategic Plan can be found at www.ahdionline.org under the heading of Advocacy and Public Policy/About AHDI.

President's Message: Who, Where, or What is AHDI?

A long time ago, if you had asked me about AHDI, I would have told you it was a faceless organization run by a bunch of people who lived next door to Ernest and Julio Gallo. You know, because the Gallo Wine corporation is based out of Modesto, California, and so is AHDI. I'm a big fan of Gallo, because I'm the kind of girl who buys wine that costs no more than $5 a bottle, so I imagined AHDI was situated in Napa Valley, surrounded by vineyards and rich people sipping wine in the golden light of California afternoons. My Californian comrades, please forgive my geographic cluelessness--I’ve never been to Modesto!

But over my years of involvement with this organization, I've come to realize that AHDI isn't a faceless organization run by wine-sipping aristocrats in suits. No, AHDI is us. AHDI is its members. It is by, for, and about its members. And like family, we don't always agree on everything, but we sure do get a lot done, and we try to have fun doing it. Read more.
