Thank you to our Fitbit Challenge Participants!

Group of young business people over blue office background.

As you might remember, building up to our 2017 NORM Conference in Kansas City, MO, we wanted to help our members get healthy in a new year! That’s why we challenged them to join our Fitbit Challenge and add their steps to our group.

NORM would like to thank all of our members who participated and stepped into Healthy Habits.

We are pleased to announce the four foundations who give back to our Rheumatology Patients on a daily basis.

  • Arthritis Foundation
  • Creaky Joints/Global Health Living Foundation
  • Lupus Foundation
  • Healthwell Foundation.

Thanks to our members, these organizations were rewarded with monetary donations. Their dedication to educate and support Rheumatology patients is greatly appreciated.  This year NORM lost a very special member to cancer.  In honor of the support he received from Pathways Foundation, we are giving them a donation in his name.

We hope that our members will continue on the Health Habits they started in 2017 and we look forward to seeing you all in 2018!

  • As a speaker at the first ad hoc meeting of rheumatology practice managers gathered in a single small room at its infancy a decade ago, I’m amazed to see how NORM has blossomed into a high energy organization of depth and professional meetings with parallel break-out symposia between plenary sessions. NORM has truly come of age. This is where the “business” of rheumatology gets learned. The ”guildmanship” for rheumatology practice management is now strong.- Paul H. Caldron, DO, FACP, FACR, MBA, Arizona Arthritis and Rheumatology Associates
  • In a time of demanding changes in the management of medical practices in the US, NORM has been a lifesaver to the community of Rheumatology practices.  NORM has allowed our practice to stay ahead of the many demands of CMS and others payors and has ensured that our practice remains cognizant of new issues that arise in HIPPA compliance, human resources and medical billing to name a few. Sending our Practice Manager to NORM's conferences has been cost-effective and beneficial to our practice because she returns to our office with an abundance of information that otherwise would have taken months to compile. Every Rheumatology practice that wishes to stay on top of emerging issues in practice management should consider sending a member of their staff to NORM's conference.- Michael S. Rosen M.D., Chester County Rheumatology PC
  • Thanks to all those wonderful people in the NORM Network who respond to emails, offering their advice, experience, time, and support ... I haven't even been a member a full year yet and I am amazed at the dedication of everyone who responds to helping via emails and the NORM Organization itself! I have barely had a chance to explore the resources and I have yet to really dive into requests for help still I am silently learning so much and do occasionally offer what I can! Thank you all!- Cheryl Piambino, Kenneth E. Bresky, DO
