Celebrating our newest members: Kris Green, Diedre Dias, Richard Wegrzyn, Julie Naillon, Alisia Segura, and Sara Sanderson! Welcome and we are so happy to have you in our Chapter! Celebrating our members who have recently achieved their CMM: Heather Horter and Kris Green. CONGRATULATIONS!! 5/17/18 PAYER DAY In collaboration with CMGMA, Pikes Peak PAHCOM presented the Annual Payer Day at Cielo at Castle Pines. With most of the payers in attendance, attendees enjoyed the beautiful venue, great food and wonderful comradery in meeting new payer staff and/or reacquainting with familiar names and faces! Each payer was asked to answer a specific question regarding their policies and throughout the agenda, time was spent networking and gathering information. Another successful Payer Meeting! 6/21/18 HR: Updating Your Employee Handbook Presented by LaNee Reynolds, VP, HR for Copic Going step by step with the process of dos and don’ts in updating or creating your employee handbook is just one of LaNee’s talents as an HR specialist. Just when you think you know it all, LaNee comes up with another answer or a twist on how to handle certain situations! We all came away with the verification that we do know a lot, but we also brought back new things to add to our handbooks. We also acknowledged Heather Horter, who successfully passed her CMM! Flowers, stuffed Graduate Owl and gift card were presented to her. Congrats again Heather! A great accomplishment! Looking Ahead to Future Meetings 7/12/18 How to deal with Drama, Negativity and Motivation Annie Moats, HR Specialist/Consultant 8/23/18 Annual OSHA Update and Review Frankie Gales, LPN, Vice President El Paso County Medical Society

The following is an update on the last two meetings: March 15, 2018: The March monthly meeting was hosted by UCHealth-Memorial Hospital at the Garden of the Gods Club. What a beautiful venue!! A huge thank you to Debra Baker, Director of Physician Relations for organizing this great meeting! Merle Taylor, COO UCHealth-Memorial Hospital, spoke about “Modeling Excellence in Healthcare and Memorial Update” which included their expansion plans and we were also updated on the progress of Children’s Hospital, currently being built next to Memorial North Hospital. April 12, 2018: The April monthly meeting was held at the MAC building with the following teaching institutions in attendance: Altierus (formerly Everest College) College America Colorado Technical University Intellitec National American University PIMA Medical Institute Pikes Peak Community College UCCS The two staffing agencies, Add Staff and WSI were also in attendance and spoke about their companies. The meeting was formatted “trade show” style, with each school at a table for meeting participants to pick up brochures and contact material. The schools then had 10 minutes to address questions that were sent prior to the meeting. Some of the questions were: What health related programs do you offer? Which programs require externships? What new programs have you implemented in the past year? And several more! It was by far, the best Educator meeting held by our chapter! Be sure not to miss this meeting next year. Coming up in May is our annual Payer Day, planned in partnership with CMGMA. The date is May 17, 2018. This annual event is always well attended and brings a wealth of information to us! Looks like the weather will be better than last year! Contact information you will probably be happy to have!
