President's Address

What binds us and creates the common threads we share? What brings us together as a group and solidifies our sense of community? We share an unwavering spirit to "get it right," to represent the patient’s health experience to the best of our ability, to partner with the author, the clinician, on the other end of the line—again, to give the patient our best. We also share a unique understanding of what it means to do that and we see ourselves as "tenants in common" in the profession dedicated to the quality and integrity of patient health information, with the same stroke the spirit of "all for one" when our colleagues hit strife.

Have a Happy Holliday with Regina!

To celebrate December, we are setting you up with a holiday extravaganza—Regina Holliday, that is! Enjoy Regina’s heartfelt keynote address from this year’s Annual Convention and Exposition as our gift to you this holiday season.

Regina Holliday is one of our profession's biggest supporters, and during her session she shared her deeply touching personal story of the challenges and struggles she faced when her husband was diagnosed with cancer. She has since advocated on behalf of patients and families everywhere as to the importance of accuracy and timely accessibility of medical records and how this directly impacts patient care. We are sure you don’t want to miss watching this presentation—even if you had the opportunity to experience it in person.

Watch "Here I Take My Stand" from ACE 2012. Want to view even more sessions from ACE 2012? Purchase the ACE 2012 DVD Boxed Set.
