My review of AHRA

by Philip F. Jacobus , President
This year, AHRA was in Orlando, Florida. It was held at the Gaylord Palms & Resort Convention Center.

The venue was excellent and so was the show.

People talk about how trade shows are shrinking, but I think the opposite is true at AHRA and in fact, we doubled our booth size for 2019.

There was lots of new equipment, a number of new vendors and an excellent following.

In many ways, radiology administrators are a friendly group of people. They are on the front lines. They have a hard job and they are always looking for ways to provide better patient care and outcomes.

I wish that the hours were longer even if it meant fewer days, but it is what it is.

I do believe that there were more attendees than last year and like so many shows, there seemed to be a higher level of optimism despite the confusion associated with healthcare.

There isn't any one big thing about the show that really stood out, but I am glad that I attended and I look forward to next year's event.

See you next week!
