In this AHIMA wrap-up article, MRO and Yale New Haven Health are mentioned for their joint presentation given at AHIMA.

The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) held its 90th annual convention and exhibit last week in Miami, Florida. Amid humidity, convention center construction and political banter, attendees found common ground on two important revenue cycle issues: operational performance and payer denials.

Keynote presenters Karl Rove and Donna Brazile shared a refreshingly balanced and humorous exchange about today’s political climate as attendees sharpened their knowledge on such important topics as privacy, cybersecurity, information governance, coding and data-driven advances in healthcare.

Underlying all the futuristic conversations and advanced technology sessions, one fact continued to ring true: HIM leaders are perpetually pushed to do more work with fewer resources. This reality pushed operational performance to the forefront of attendees’ focus and convention priority lists.
