On June 18, 2018, I was the opening motivational speaker for the Kentucky Healthcare Information Management Association ( KY HIMA).
The event, held at the Hilton Lexington, Downtown, attracted over 300 healthcare information managers.
Electronic health records have spurred evolutionary change. It has changed the career path and job or most health information managers. The HIM profession has evolved from medical records management to a wide range of roles and responsibilities.
Health care information management professionals from across Kansas gathered to embrace the opportunities that have cropped up in the ever-evolving healthcare industry.
The agenda was full of engaging and relevant content including Coding and Billing, EHR Governance, Healthcare Fraud, Information governance, legislative updates, Coding in the ER, and more.
The audience was a very thoughtful, hard-working group. Serious about proper coding and the future of their industry, they craved learning and development.
I also did a workshop session just for students called I love my studies; it's the people I can't stand. We had an engaging discussion about the future of healthcare, career direction and how to deal with difficult people.
It is a young, keen generation that will transform our healthcare industry. Proper healthcare records management will be a crucial resource for the health of Americans.
I was the opening Female Motivational Speaker, talking on This Would be Funny if it Wasn't Happening to Me! How to Navigate the Future with Humor, Enthusiasm and Vigor.
This dedicated, hard-working audience love to laugh.
