CNN President’s Message
Lauren Houseal, RHIA

I hope many of you were able to attend our December educational session at the Hotel Hershey this past week. It was a great session with presentations about Leadership, Accountable Care Organizations and Population Health. Thank you to all of our speakers who took the time to come and educate us on their knowledge areas.

In addition, we passed some bylaw updates at our business meeting to reflect changes to details in the membership section. If you were unable to attend or didn’t see the message in previous CNNs, we have updated our membership bylaws for both Active and Student membership classifications to align with both AHIMA and PHIMA changes. This broadens the coverage of individuals that can participate in CPHIMA and provide valuable input to our organization and profession. We also removed the designation of Associate Membership, which again aligns with AHIMA and PHIMA designations. The final change was to align the wording for dues to reflect our current practices. Please contact a CPHIMA board member if you have any questions about the changes.

In the New Year, you can look forward to two more educational sessions provided by CPHIMA. The locations and agendas for those meetings are still being finalized so keep an eye out for more details. Also keep an eye out for ICD-10 Coding Camps that are going to be run by PHIMA. Two of the coding camps are going to take place in the CPHIMA region. The first one is going to be held at Masonic Village form March 26th – 28th and the second one at Penn College from June 18th – 20th.

Best wishes to all of you for a very happy and healthy holiday season.
