The AHDI Board of Directors and Staff invite you to join us in Nashville, Tennessee, for AHDI’s 31st Annual Convention and Expo. In a season of economic uncertainty, it is more important than ever for professionals to stay connected to the information and resources that will keep them relevant to the future of our economy. With President Obama's stimulus bill comes a huge opportunity for everyone in the health IT sector, including documentation specialists. What does this strong push for EHR adoption mean to you as an MT or editor? What skills and credentials will you need in this evolving technology-driven picture? This will be the focus of our 31st annual meeting - helping to position documentation professionals for relevance and impact in the future of healthcare delivery.
