Power of 10 Campaign
Attendees at ACE 2009 were the first to hear about AHDI’s new Power of 10, a year-long campaign to raise $10 from 10,000 MTs by 2010. Why? To support the association’s advocacy efforts in Washington, DC, where AHDI and MTIA are working hard to make sure all healthcare documentation professionals have a role in the future of the EHR. Our lobbying firm, along with our government relations staff, is making sure our sector is well represented in important meetings and discussions being held by our nation’s legislators and policymakers on healthcare reform, criteria and standards for EHR systems, and workforce development in allied health. All Power of 10 funds go directly to this effort. Thank you to all in attendance who stepped up to be the first to contribute to this important initiative—helping us raise nearly $2000 toward this goal. If you did not get a chance to contribute, you can donate to the Power of 10 campaign online or by mail. Make sure your funds are clearly marked for this campaign, and as a reminder, donations to this campaign are not tax deductable as charitable contributions.
