American Health Information Management Association, Chicago, aims to have a new CEO in place by its convention in the fall, following the departure of its short-time chief staff executive as well as its longtime CFO.
AHIMA PR director Craig May will not say why Sandra Fuller left the CFO position in May followed shortly, “by a week or two,” by CEO Alan Dowling. May also would not say why the association did not announce their departures.
Dowling became AHIMA CEO just over a year ago (see “Executive Changes,” 1/4/10). Fuller joined the staff in 1997.
The AHIMA board has started a search with the goal of having the new CEO chosen by Oct. 1, when the association meets in Salt Lake City. Former board member Rose Dunn has been named interim CEO. The association will not use a search firm.
In related news, former AHIMA CEO Linda Kloss, CAE, has joined the Precyse Advisory Council. Precyse is a healthcare technology services provider. Dowling succeeded Kloss, who was the 15-year CEO at AHIMA before retiring. In retirement, she started Kloss Strategic Advisors. Details: www.ahima.org.
