Just curious to find out if anyone will be attending AHIMA in Salt Lake City Utah next month. Would be interested in putting together a meet up if there will be any Tech Hui folks represented. 


Additionally, I'm putting together a special dinner with John Nelson. Dr. Nelson is a former President of the AMA, and is currently the Chief Medical Officer with the Leavitt Partners. The Leavitt Partners, being former Secretary of HHS, Mike Leavitt's group.

If you're going to be attending AHIMA, let me know.
