The New Year Already? What’s Coming Up?

As I look outside at the snow coming down, it is hard to believe that it wasn’t only yesterday that we were sweltering in the Austin heat at this year’s AHDI annual convention!  How did the end of the year sneak up on us already?

But, regardless of whether or not we noticed it coming – here it is upon us. And there are some big changes coming in the next couple of weeks…

Beginning in the New Year, we have some exciting changes coming to the Management for the Modern MTSO blog:

Here are just a few…

  • The name. The name is going to change to Excellence in Health Information. Why? It is my opinion that medical transcription is an important part of HIM, and that transcription service providers need to reconnect with their HIM roots. And HIM needs to understand that transcription is more than just a paper document with pretty formatting.  Transcription can be an economical way to capture comprehensive health information in a way that can help the HIM keep up with all the changes coming their way. That being said – our conversations are still going to cover transcription. But we will be talking about the topic of health information as a whole as well.
  • Guest bloggers. Coming soon! I’ll be hosting guest bloggers from across the industry – transcription service providers, HIM professionals – anyone who has a voice in health information today. We already have an exciting line-up so stay tuned!
  • HIM student corner. I’m so excited about this! Thanks to Val and Patti from the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Health and Rehabilitation Services Health Information Management program, we’ve had the pleasure recently of working with several HIM students at M*Modal. Now we’ll be hearing from them on our blog as well! Everyone at M*Modal has been so impressed at the knowledge, professionalism, and enthusiasm of these students – and we are learning as much from them as we hope they are from us. We are pleased to have the opportunity to share them with you!

Last, but not least, watch for us out on ADVANCE for Health Professional’s HIM Insider: Blogs where we hope to bring the message of high-quality health information to an even larger audience.

We have some huge changes coming to our industry over the next couple of years. Let’s continue to talk together, and include our friends from the HIM world, about the important topics in health information today.

Til next time,
