From the Desk of the KAHCE President

The KAHCE Annual Meeting and Fall Education event was held in Overland Park a few weeks ago on September 5. It was wonderful to participate in that educational offering and learn about care teams, behavioral healthcare and improving our teams. We had our first joint education session with HFMA, and I think both organizations benefited from the partnership. Trenton Stringer, our Education Committee chair and his committee should be recognized for their outstanding accomplishment. Bob Bregant, Sponsorship Committee chair, and his committee found great sponsors for the event, which allows us to keep our education event fees low and support organization goals like sending individuals to Congress.

During the lunch hour, we had our annual meeting. Good news—finances look great. I was also able to present George Stover, our treasurer, the ACHE Exemplary Service Award. Our Regent, Patricia Sanders-Hall was able to present Regent Awards to Roger Masse and Catherine Barrett. We also had a great networking session with our KU students with approximately 12 students in attendance.

Our fall conference is scheduled in conjunction with the KHA conference, and we have a booth at the trade show each year. It was a great opportunity for our board members who manned the booth to talk to current and potential members. This year we added a drawing for a 7” tablet to our booth, and we hope to do that again next year.

Our final KCLPC event will be November 1 from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. at St. Luke’s East Hospital in Lee's Summit. The topic is Disruptive Innovation in Healthcare Delivery. Justine Karungi, KCLPC committee chair, and her committee have provided timely educational topics in KC in conjunction with the Missouri ACHE chapter.

Elections will be coming soon, and we will be doing an online/e-mail vote again this year. Please take the time to review the candidate list, vote, and support your KAHCE board in its activities in 2019.

The KAHCE Board annual retreat is planned for November 2. During this meeting, we will review our accomplishments and opportunities from 2018 and plan for 2019. This will include a review of the Chapter Member Needs survey, where we use your feedback to help improve the benefits your chapter provides to its members. If you have any suggestions for changes you would like to see, please contact me.
