today. He discusses his odds-defying journey, celebrates the life-changing power of education, champions the Latino
American Dream, and provides thought-provoking insights into human nature and ethical behavior. A lifetime of “never taking no for an
answer” took Quiñones from migrant farm work and poverty to more

Take AHIMA’s Coding Productivity Survey
Healthcare providers have a difficult time establishing standards
and guidelines for coding productivity for their own coding teams
without industry benchmarks. AHIMA is working to address this
information gap with its own rigorous study of coding productivity—but we cannot do this without feedback from our own community of coding professionals.
That’s why AHIMA is looking for coding professionals who are
18 years of age and over who spend at least 50 percent of their time
coding in any healthcare environment to take an online survey. To
access the survey, scan the QR code or visit bit.ly/2kcINre. This study assesses productivity for
coding in outpatient and inpatient settings and evaluates factors affecting productivity, such as
interruptions of other tasks, the use of supportive technology, and work setting. The records of
this study are kept private.
