Numerous articles have pointed out that despite a larger investment in IT services, There is little evidence of improved clinical outcomes.

It’s National Long-Term Care Administrator’s Week!
During this week, we encouraged our team, residents, families, and volunteers to say “Thank You” and honor Gardenview Manor Administrator, Val Tischler, who already contributes so much to her long-term care community. To become an Administrator takes commitment and dedication. She has undergone a rigorous internship, followed by state exams. Upon becoming an Administrator, she continues life-long learning to provide the best care possible in every situation.
It's important to Val to deliver a great patient experience while maintaining a sense of community within her home. She is committed to advancing quality at Gardenview Manor and leads her new team in caring for our most vulnerable and cherished population.
Thank you, Val, for your commitment and dedication; we appreciate you today and every day!

Initially formed to serve the interests of hospital patient account managers, AAHAM has evolved into a national membership association that represents a broad-based constituency of healthcare professionals. Professional development of its members is one of the primary goals of the association. Publications, conferences and seminars, benchmarking, professional certification and networking offer numerous opportunities for increasing the skills and knowledge that are necessary to function effectively in today’s health care environment. AAHAM actively represents the interests of healthcare administrative management professionals through a comprehensive program of legislative and regulatory monitoring and its participation in industry groups such as ANSI, DISA and NUBC.
