The effective date of Kloss’ exit is scheduled for March 31, 2010, AHIMA says.

AHIMA is a professional society. Its mission, it says, is to improve healthcare by advancing best practices and standards for health information management. It claims to serve as a trusted source for education, research and professional credentialing; representing more than 53,000 specially educated HIM professionals.
