PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Here we are again at the beginning of another year. It’s a chance to wipe our slates clean and set new goals and challenges for our chapter and ourselves. There are new adventures to seek out in this new year.

Our goals for this year are to continue work on increasing our membership and also to find ways to make the public aware of who we are and what we do. I’m always amazed at how many people have no idea how MTs create these important records. They think their medical reports just “magically appear” in their charts. I think it’s especially important that we make people aware of how our jobs are the first line of defense for patient safety. We all know how often we correct inconsistencies in reports that even the dictators are not aware of – the incorrect dosages, grammatical errors, the CT scan dictated that is really an MRI, etc.

We are looking forward as usual to our 2 symposia this year, one in Buffalo, NY, and one in Warren, PA. These promise to a great chance for CECs with some excellent speakers. Further details on these meetings can be found on the AHDI and PA-AHDI web sites.

Why not get involved and make plans to come out and join us for a new year of adventure in 2009.

Marlene Lester, CMT, FAHDI
