Practice Management Institute has named Barbara Good, Physician Practice Advocate for the West Virginia State Medical Association, its 2011-2012 Outstanding National Liaison. The award was given during an industry-wide ceremony at the PMI Annual Conference for Medical Office Professionals, held June 13-15 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and Resort in historic downtown San Antonio.

Chosen nationally from among hundreds of PMI hospital, medical society, physician service group and program host partners, Ms. Good has been recognized by PMI for her exceptional networking and relationship-building abilities among her peers throughout the U.S., becoming the years stand-out mentor on the importance of accessibility of education to the physician and staff.

"This award is special in that we spotlight the one client among hundreds who has made an important contribution regarding a particular message--that making education accessible is vital, and can do much to build bridges between an organization and the physicians they serve." said Michael Moore, PMI Director of Outreach, Network, and Business Development.

"Barbara Good has by example taken the role of program host to the next level, setting a high bar. She has for example brought the West Virginia State Office Managers Association into the loop as a partner. There is a synergy going on in West Virginia between providers, staff, and the WVSMA through these programs that we are not seeing anywhere else. It's what other host entities, including other state medical

societies, are wanting to emulate." said Moore.
