Happy holidays to everyone in the CPHIMA community!
If you were able to attend the educational session at The Hotel Hershey recently, I hope that you found the sessions beneficial and the food tasty! Thank you to everyone who was in attendance for this session. A special thank you to Patrick Hamilton from CMS for talking with us about Meaningful Use Stage 2, to Richard Seneca for providing another informative update about what is happening in healthcare law and to Martin Ciccocioppo from HAP for providing and update on the State Health Information Exchanges.
The next educational session will be on Friday, March 15, 2013 at Masonic Homes in Elizabethtown. The theme will be ICD-10, so please consider joining your peers for a very informative session.
By now you should have received a Coding roundtable survey. Please take a moment to provide your feedback. Potential roundtable topics of drug administration coding and face-to-face or teleconference review of operative reports (in the context of ICD-10 coding) are being considered for future roundtables. The goal is to provide sessions that will be useful to you in your work, so please take a moment and let us know what you think!
The coming year is sure to keep each and every one of us busy. Don’t forget to reach out to your peers and tap into the knowledge and expertise that each one of us bring to this profession. I hope that you all enjoy the holiday season with family and friends. I am looking forward to seeing you in 2013!
