AHDI is recruiting a group of volunteers to work on a special project for the purpose of identifying and addressing the myriad questions and concerns managers and supervisors face every day related to value-added marketing, QA best practices in the EHR, and future roles. We are looking for dedicated volunteers willing to share their knowledge, skills, and expertise in the following areas:
Value-Added Marketing: This section will address how to market the value of your department to upper management, creating a dashboard as a way to measure productivity and subsequent savings in costs. Sherry Doggett, chair; volunteers needed.
QA Best Practices in the EHR: This section will address physician-entry data practices, ongoing evaluation of processes, and continuing education and training of physicians and staff. Kathy Lengel, chair; volunteers needed.
Future Roles: This section will address cross training, changes in job descriptions of existing personnel, creation of new jobs, educational training, and how to promote your staff. Lynn Noble, chair; volunteers needed.
Once information is compiled for each section, it will be formatted into an easy-to-use downloadable eBook. This will be an invaluable reference tool for healthcare documentation managers, supervisors, and business owners.
