National Patient Account Management Week
National Patient Account Management Day was established on October 18, 1989 by a proclamation from the U.S. Congress when AAHAM (then AGPAM) sought to officially recognize healthcare administration management throughout the country. The 2017 National Patient Account Management Day will be part of a week-long celebration, October 15-21, by hospitals, physician offices and others involved with patient account management to recognize and honor the individuals engaged in healthcare administrative management.
Through the AAHAM online store, AAHAM sells a wide array of products to commemorate this special week. This is a special week to honor those special people involved in healthcare administrative management; for managers to honor the individuals on their staffs, for the public to become aware of the profession, and for each of us to recognize our colleagues and ourselves.
There are numerous opportunities for you to gain recognition for your department or office. Submit an article on our profession to your chapter or company newsletter. Local newspapers often have sections that highlight important dates and celebrations. Create an informative display describing the work, growth and/or evolution of the department or spotlighting the department's employees. Some departments celebrate with decorations, contests, treats and create elaborate themes to get office/hospital-wide involvement.
By supporting PAM week, you show your healthcare administrative management team that you appreciate their hard work. A recognition program implemented during this special week is an excellent way of increasing hospital and office morale and expanding knowledge of our profession. We hope you have a truly rewarding and successful Patient Account Management Day and week!
