Chapter News

01/20/2017 - What is an APM?
Our January topic was presented by Marie Jannausch-Hooper, executive director of NPO/NMHN shared her expertise regarding alternative payment models. Marie did her best to allay our fears regarding meeting MIPS/MACRA measures for 2017. For those of us who are part of the Northern Michigan Health Network ACO, the good news is that we fulfill the advancing care information requirements just by being a part of the Medicare Shared Savings Program ACO. Working collaboratively we are better aligned to qualify for higher payments than by working independently. Patients, physicians, hospitals and payers are best served with an engaged and accountable collective physician group, such as NPO/NMHN.

12/29/2016 - December TC Chapter Meeting
It’s hard to believe that another year has passed. What a whirlwind! Our December meeting was a round table discussion, installation of chapter officers and donation collections for TC-CAST (Traverse City chapter of Citizens Against Sex Trafficking). Jamie Schichtel, CMM, CMA is our new Chapter President. Gail Eminhizer, CMM, CGCS, HITCM-PP is now our chapter Vice-President. Christine Lee, CMM remains our chapter Treasurer, Paulette Hunt, CMM, RMA remains our chapter Membership Director, and Laura Alexander, CMM remains chapter Secretary. Congratulations Ladies! Many thanks to Gail for her leadership for so many years. Thank you to all who donated to CAST. We are truly blessed with great members and sponsors with big hearts. Sex trafficking is something we hear about on TV, but it is also right in our own back yards. All of our donations will go toward survivor emergency care bags that will contain essentials such as shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, etc. A big thank you to Karen Blanchett and the folks at National for the wonderful PAHCOM bags. Wishing everyone a blessed and peace-filled Christmas and New Year!
