Message from NCMGMA President Jane Lutz

Good Afternoon:

As we start another year, I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who is part of the NCMGMA for your time and dedication to the healthcare industry. We are 800+ strong and I am honored to serve as your 2019 President. It truly takes a village to meet the challenges we face in healthcare each and every day.

The board has several goals this year that we wanted to share with our collective membership. These include:

  • Board and committee focus on new member engagement and retention of our current membership.
  • Exploring alternative revenue sources for NCMGMA that will bring additional value to our members.
  • Reviewing our current organizational structure to determine if it meets our operational needs.
  • Remaining a resource for our 13 active committees, 9 local NCMGMA Chapters, and numerous task force groups.
  • Reviewing our Partnership Affiliation with MGMA National to ensure this relationship continues to meet the needs of our organization.

We are a very fortunate organization. Our members put forth countless hours of service, bringing important perspective on the work we do on behalf of our patients and providers, while serving our common mission with selfless dedication. Our Alliance Sponsors provide a wealth of opportunity and support for our leadership and membership to learn and grow, both on an individual level and as an organization. Our management company, TH Mgmt., Inc., keeps our team focused and organized on the issues at hand. It feels good knowing all of the right pieces are in place to ensure the continued success of NCMGMA.

Lastly, I want to highlight our new collaborative series with Business of Healthcare!
