Two weeks ago, we had the opportunity to exhibit at MTIA’s 18th Annual Conference, and once again, we were pleased with the show. We had the chance to meet up with old colleagues and friends, while simultaneously meeting new faces and discussing PRN Funding’s factoring niche within the medical transcription industry.
We were also very intrigued and excited to learn about the new relationship between the Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity (AHDI)—formerly the American Association of Medical Transcription (AAMT)—and the Medical Transcription Industry Association (MTIA). Seeing a trade association growing and adapting to serve the needs of medical transcription services owners (MTSOs) is a good thing, and PRN Funding supports the merge wholeheartedly. Although MTIA is an excellent association for the medical transcribing world, the organization was too small to effectively reach all of its members. We feel that this collaboration is a good thing for MTSOs worldwide. We look forward to the continued growth of this strategic legal partnership.
Q: How do you feel about the merge between AHDI (formally AAMT) and MTIA?
A: Jay Cannon (President of MTIA and COO of Webmedx, Inc.) commented about the new AHDI/MTIA relationship in the June 2007 issue of Journal of the American Association for Medical Transcription (JAAMT). Like PRN Funding, Cannon is extremely thrilled about it. In his column, he wrote “I do believe this relationship to be one of strategic importance as we mutually strive toward advancing the relevance of medical transcription in the ever-changing clinical documentation landscape.”
