What a lovely surprise! This beautiful crystal, recognizing the 50th Anniversary of the Pennsylvania Keystone Chapter of AAHAM, arrived in my mail today.

Many AAHAM and Revenue Cycle professionals paved the way for Keystone to thrive for 50 years. I am so proud of our legacy and, as Chapter President, that I am able to keep our traditions going even during these uncertain times. Education and Certification are what makes AAHAM the premier organization for Revenue Cycle Professionals.

Thank you to Lori Sickelbaugh, CRCE our National President , the entire Executive Committee and Sharon Galler, Executive Director and her team for all they do for AAHAM each and every day.

Finally, to the Keystone Board of Directors, thank you! It is an honor to serve with you and I am confident Keystone will be in good hands for another 50+ years.

A special shout out to all Keystone Members.....you are ALL the BEST! We look forward to serving you for years to come.

AAHAM continues to be an industry leader in the fight for the TCPA! As the new administration settles into action, we are starting to see developments on the TCPA front at the FCC. On March 29th, AAHAM joined the ACA International, The Edison Electric Institute and The Cargo Airline Association in a petition to the FCC to respectfully request the Commission to reconsider certain aspects of its TCPA Exemptions Order. This order amended longstanding exemptions from the Telephone Consumer Protection Act’s (“TCPA”) consent requirements for certain categories of informational calls. AAHAM will continue to keep you updated on the progress of this most recent effort.

General information

AAHAM was founded in 1968 as the American Guild of Patient Account Management. Initially formed to serve the interests of hospital patient account managers, AAHAM has evolved into a national membership association that represents a broad-based constituency of healthcare professionals. Professional development of its members is one of the primary goals of the association. Publications, conferences and seminars, benchmarking, professional certification and networking offer numerous opportunities for increasing the skills and knowledge that are necessary to function effectively in today’s health care environment. AAHAM actively represents the interests of healthcare administrative management professionals through a comprehensive program of legislative and regulatory monitoring and its participation in industry groups such as ANSI, DISA and NUBC. AAHAM is a major force in shaping the future of health care administrative management. The association's Board of Directors is made up of the presidents of AAHAM's local Chapters. The Officers are elected by the membership at large and serve two year terms. The only non elected national officer position is that of Chairman. That position is filled by departing national president. Committee Chairs are picked by the national president and serve at the discretion of the president. The National Office Staff is made up of full time professionals who strive to provide the national membership with the best services and benefits possible. The National Office is located just south of Washington, D.C. in Fairfax, Virginia.
