President's Letter

Welcome to Hawkeye AAHAM website. AAHAM (American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management) is the leading organization for revenue cycle leaders and staff, and I am proud and honored to be serving as President for Iowa’s Chapter!

I want Hawkeye AAHAM to be YOUR organization – the members and corporate sponsors organization. I, like our past presidents, want to help lead our Chapter to reach its best potential.

I would like to see us grow. One way to do that is to bring in new members. These members don’t have to come from hospitals, they can come from any entity in healthcare that is seeing patients and doing the billing. We are all focused on improving the patient experience, managing denials, improving accounts receivable and managing staff. If you know someone that works in these areas in healthcare, invite them to join us. The more people we can bring together the more we can learn from each other.

Being a member of AAHAM also brings growth to our education and knowledge through educational sessions that are offered. This will make us stronger employees, and this knowledge we bring to our organizations to help bring about improvements in the revenue cycle will make them stronger as well.

Certification is another great way to grow – earning one of the AAHAM certifications will keep us on top of revenue cycle best practices and compliance issues. AAHAM offers many different types of certifications and it’s an investment in our personal growth as well as our professional futures.

I am interested in hearing how YOU would like us to grow! Please reach out to me with your ideas! This is YOUR organization and I am here for you! I want to work with you to have a successful Chapter.

Let’s keep growing,

Laurie Bruck

President, Iowa Hawkeye AAHAM Chapter
