2016-2017 CT HFMA President
I am honored, proud and excited to serve as the 2016/2017 President of the Connecticut HFMA chapter.
It will be an exciting year for both HFMA national as well as our local Connecticut chapter. The theme selected by Mary Mirabelli, FHFMA, and Voluntary National Chair of HFMA is “Thrive”. During the Leadership Training Conference in April 2016, Ms. Mirabelli quoted Epictetus, an ancient Greek philosopher, “It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.”
Nationally and locally, healthcare is in the midst of large-scale changes and industry wide transformation. These changes put us at a crossroads where we can simply hold on and try to survive or we can grab ahold of the reigns and use the challenges as an opportunity to thrive.
Our chapter has always chosen to thrive. Our members have recognized us as an invaluable resource for educational opportunities and networking as well as by National as a chapter that continues to exceed organizational goals.
This year we are again embracing the challenges that are before us. We are excited to announce that we will not only be upgrading our website this year, but have also launched a new mobile app. Be sure to download it through iTunes and the Google Play Store if you haven’t already.
If you are a member of the Connecticut chapter, I want to thank you for your support and encourage your feedback, ideas and volunteerism. Get involved; it is an amazing group of individuals!
If you are not an HFMA member, I invite you to reach out to a member to learn more about our organization or try one of our new social networking events. We have launched our “Third Wednesday Social Networking Series.” These events will be hosted throughout the state in an effort to connect our membership and attract new members. I have no doubt that this initiative will be a huge success.
Additionally, a focus for the upcoming year is how HFMA can serve the entire continuum of care. While the organizational roots were in hospital settings, we have grown over the years to reach across silos within our industry. This year we will focus on further participation by individuals within the payer and physician communities. Our goal is to better understand the challenges our entire industry is facing from all vantage points and begin to encourage dialogue between players.
Our chapter is strong because of the talent and dedication of our membership. HFMA encourages us to come together and to find a way to thrive
I am thrilled for the opportunity to serve in the capacity as President for this year. Thank you for your trust and belief in our Connecticut Chapter.
