Chapter News

07/19/2017 - July Chapter Meeting
Our July Chapter meeting was led by Mark Hakim of ProAssurance. He had us play a game of “Jeopardy” to test our knowledge on best practices, statistics and examples of medical liabilities. It was really fun and very informative. Gail Eminhizer, CMM, demonstrated how to register for the Annual PAHCOM Conference in Clearwater Beach, FL. Those of us who have attended shared the value in attending the Annual Conference. A Fall CMM study group is in the works. Several chapter members have expressed an interest in obtaining their certification.

06/28/2017 - Preparing for the Unexpected: Keeping your Office Safe and Secure in Uncertain Times
Preparing for the Unexpected: Keeping your Office Safe and Secure in Uncertain Times Gail Eminhizer, CMM, CGCS, HITCM-PP presented great information on safety in the work place. The ambulatory surgical center that her office is located in conducted a live shooter drill this spring and Gail was able to share a video that they recorded of the drill, as well as really interesting statistics related to mass shootings. You simply never know when a situation will arise in your office that could put your staff, patients and providers in danger. Know your surroundings: What doors in your office have locks; does your staff know where all of the exits are; where would the best place to hide be, etc? Homeland security has a video called, “Run, Hide, Flight”. Interestingly, it encourages people to run rather than stop and help others, which goes against what most of us would be inclined to do. Remember: “The body cannot go where the mind has not gone first”. Know your surroundings! Congratulations to Terry McPhall, CMM on obtaining her CMM. Nicely done Terry! Our Spring PAHCOM Seminar and Vendor Fair was a success! We had a wonderful speakers, generous vendors and a great turn out. We would like to extend a big thank you to Jennifer Coleman, CMM, MHSA, FACHE, for stepping in and filling up some extra time. Save the date for next years’ seminar on Friday, May 18, 2018.
