       MAHDI 2008                           Other than attending my local chapter’s educational opportunities, my
    EXECUTIVE BOARD                         involvement with AHDI was very limited. I knew enough though that if this
                                            was to be my career, AHDI would be an integral part of that based on the
 President/1st Alternate Delegate           support it lends not only to its members, but to the industry. So, when two
 Sheila Guston, CMT                         MAMT officers mentioned that the State chapter was at risk of folding due to
 2046 Cayuga NW                             lack of volunteers, it got my attention. Did I have time to be involved? Did I
 Grand Rapids, MI 49504                     know enough about AHDI to get involved? What help could I possibly offer?

                                            number of books and articles, some appearing in JAAMT.

Mark your calendars for spring symposia all over the state – Mid Michigan and Bay Area Spring Fling in Frankenmuth is
on May 17,Huron River’s Spring Symposium is on March 15, and West Michigan Chapter’s Spring Symposium is on
4/19. If you’ve ever considered going to AHDI’s national meeting, this is the year to do it! The 2008 Annual Convention
is being held in Orlando, FL from August 6 through August 9. Dr. G: Medical Examiner is one of the speakers! I attended
                                         MICHIGAN ON RECORD
for the first time last year in Reno and loved it! The educational opportunities, the vendor exhibits, the networking – can’t
be beat! Plus, bring your family and enjoy all that Orlando has to offer!

Finally, in an effort to increase membership and member involvement, AHDI is launching what they’ve called the “Next
Gen” campaign this year. Many of our Baby Boomers are retiring and dropping out of association life. Let’s do our part
to increase membership and involvement by making the Michigan chapter a force to be reckoned with! Seek out
transcription students or recent graduates….help educate the general public about a career in healthcare documentation
and direct those who are interested to the career information available on AHDI’s web site. Pins will soon be available to
help in this effort. They state simply, I Love My Career…Ask Me Why.

Let’s work together to boost membership. The chapter that increases membership by the highest percentage by the end of
August 2008 will be honored at this year’s State meeting and will receive a gift of appreciation the entire chapter can
enjoy. Share what you do with others and invite them to attend a meeting with you! I’ll provide an update on how the
chapters are doing over the next few months.

Finally, I’m proud to represent Michigan this year as President. I may not know it all, but I’m willing to ask the questions
that need to be asked and do what needs to be done. Please don’t ever hesitate to contact me or any one of the board
members for questions, concerns, or suggestions. We want to hear from you – we’re here FOR you.

                           2008 AHDI Component Membership Contest
What: AHDI is sponsoring a component level membership contest to increase membership at the national level in all
        membership categories. Components will compete in two separate categories, local components and
        State/Regional components. Only new members will qualify for the membership contest. New members are
        considered any individuals who have never been a member in any category with AHDI.

How: Components will be responsible for collecting and submitting all new membership applications and payments to
        the national office to count toward component totals. Please submit membership applications, credit card and
        check payments to:
                Attn: Bethany Twist
                4230 Kiernan Ave., Suite 130
                Modesto, CA 95356

        Submission must be postmarked no later than April 30, 2008. If the new member chooses to pay directly by
        contacting Member Services, they must email with the name of the component that they
        want their application credited towards, no later than April 30, 2008. The email must come from the new member
        not the component association.

When: The dates of the contest will be March 1, 2008 through April 30, 2008.

Why: If every State/Regional Component brought in 10 members and active local components brought in 5 members,
        AHDI would have 540 new members in two months. These 540 new members will help create energy and
        excitement about the association and help the leadership at all levels of the association spread excitement about
        AHDI programs and potentially help recruit additional new members.

How: AHDI staff will work with the membership council to keep the energy up about the membership contest through
        advertisements in Vitals and the Leadership blasts. The Membership Council and component members will be
        encouraged to place a tag line under their signature lines in emails during the length of the contest.

Prizes:         Winning components will have the option of choosing their prize from the items below. Only one prize
        from each category will be awarded to the winning component on the State/Regional level and one prize in each
        category to the Local Component level.

toward the future with EHR, Speech and Voice Recognition, and even those who are still transcriptionists. There is room
for all of us in this broad spectrum, and each needs to be educated for the future -- and what an exciting future is out there
for us. I will be traveling to DC, coming back to Spring Fling in Frankenmuth, and then leaving again for Mission Point
in Mackinaw Island for the MHIMA Meeting in May. What a busy month that will be. I am busy with webinars, which I
find I quite enjoy. I was sort of scared of them at first; but, once I figured everything out, it was a piece of cake and quite
fun! I will keep you posted on the future events of our association. I plan to send updates via e-mail to everyone -- Ava
is working with me on this one -- and trying to keep our State officers informed as well as our local chapters officers.
Right now things are just beginning, so it is hard to update anything other than what I have shared above! It is also
exciting to talk with other delegates from other States/Regions and be able to think and talk with them and share ideas.
Please, please feel free to share your ideas with me about components, speech/voice recognition, EHR, or anything that I
can help you with. Don't forget, Ava George is also AHDI Director this year; and she has a wonderful blog site. In fact, I
like to go there and listen to her music when I am stressed! I want to thank you for voting for me. I promise to fulfill my
duties to the best of my ability. Right now there is a lot to fulfill as the delegate and a lot is beginning to happen....

Michigan Delegate
                                                   MHIMA UPDATE
MHIMA has received another CSA award and will be creating a section on awards on their website to share the
information with members. They also took pictures of all board members and committee chairs to put on the website at
their last board meeting. Their Capital Hill Day is slated for April 8, 2008. April Martin reported to MHIMA regarding the
AHDI/MTIA Lobby Day in May.

MHIMA is having their next Annual Meeting Conference Committee meeting via conference call this coming Tuesday
and their board meeting on Friday. At the board meeting, the local components will be looking at an affiliation agreement
with their state association. As a part of the agreement, the local components will be asked to become incorporated. They
are also considering aligning their local components with the 9 components in the MiHIN. April Martin suggested to
MAHDI board to possibly look at seeing what MiHIN regions our local chapters correlate with and possibly investigating
this further. At MHIMA's last board meeting, conflict of interest forms were signed by all board members and committee
chairs as well. A very active MHIMA member, Carol Jennings, has been nominated to run for AHIMA President.

Finally, Marsha Allen is reserving a booth for MAHDI at their annual meeting at Mission Point. We need to determine
whether we will be utilizing it and who we are sending. April Martin has the forms.

At ACE -- Meet Dr. G, Medical Examiner
On nights and weekends, she’s a devoted wife and mother of two boys; but, during the day, she spends her time solving
medical mysteries as one of the nation’s leading forensic pathologists. Discovery Health Channel’s series profiles the
profession of Dr. G (Dr. Jan Garavaglia) in Dr. G: Medical Examiner, airing Fridays at 9 p.m. EST. In this compelling
series, Dr. G explains to viewers how people can die suddenly and unexpectedly. She uses cutting-edge forensic science
and technology to solve the mysteries of life and death. Dr. G’s work is a public service to the community as she
determines cause and manner of death. She also plays a significant role in helping family members obtain closure and
cope with the tragic loss of a loved one.

More than 6,000 cases came through the District Nine Medical Examiner’s Office (serving Orange and Osceola counties
in Florida) in 2003 alone. Now, Discovery Health Channel brings Dr. G’s investigative work to the forefront in Dr. G:
Medical Examiner for viewers to get an appreciation of forensic science, human emotion, and the delicate line between
life and death and we’ve got her! Dr. G will be giving a keynote presentation at the 30th Annual Convention & Expo in
Orlando, Florida, this August. Remember, if you have never attended a convention before, you get a $50 discount for
being a first timer. Students receive a $100 discount!
