I am very excited to be leading this chapter year and for what’s to come. Last chapter year started unlike any other and despite the challenging circumstances, the team accomplished a lot. Each year the HFMA Associations Chair picks a theme. This year’s theme is Bolder, Brighter, Better and it resonates with me after the year we all experienced. As healthcare and finance professionals, we were resilient and strong this past year and we want to always strive to be better. This year as a chapter we are going to continue to rebrand our digital presence and will be unveiling a new website soon. We are also looking forward to getting back to in person conferences while also exploring hybrid options. This last year our membership has grown to over 2,000 members. If you are new to revenue cycle, don’t be afraid to jump in and get engaged. Utilize the network of resources that you have available by being a member of HFMA. There are lots of educational opportunities on our website as well as in person. Don’t be shy about asking questions you are curious about. I have learned a lot from my peers within in the industry and met a great number of terrific people. HFMA is one of the best ways to meet, network, and learn from other healthcare professionals. None of our past or future success would be possible without the generous support of both our sponsors and volunteers. We deeply appreciate the efforts and resources of both. Please do not hesitate to reach out if I can help in any way.
Cheers and stay safe!
Tracy Quinn Wisconsin HFMA President, 2021-2022 Director of Client Services, State Collection Service, Inc.
