The AARC is currently asking for participation in a survey that will be used in the 2020 revision of the AARC Uniform Reporting Manual. The goal of the revision, as stated in the letter from Garry Kauffman, RRT, FAARC, MPA, FACHE, is to help with building a foundation of statistically valid time standards, and thus a foundation for a national standard of productivity. Please consider taking time to read Garry’s letter and to complete the survey.
