Leadership

 

The tenure of Tom Price, MD, as HHS Secretary lasted less than eight months, but healthcare organizations aren’t expecting a major shift from where the agency was headed under his leadership.

The board of directors for the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) has announced it’s launching a nationwide search for its next CEO, which has been filled by an interim leader since July.
