Petition to CCHIIM for Reconsideration of AHIMA 40% Requirement for CEUs

Dear MHIMA Member,

I hope this letter finds you well.  We are writing to you as concerned members of the HIM community.  As you may be aware, the recent decision by the Commission on Certification for Health Informatics and Information Management (CCHIIM) to require 40% of Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to be obtained through the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) has raised significant concerns among professionals in our field.

Several CAs have developed a petition to give our members the opportunity to oppose the new CCHIIM requirement that 40% of continuing education credit must be obtained from AHIMA. Your participation in signing the petition is crucial in expressing our collective concerns and advocating for a more inclusive approach to continuing education within our profession.

We appreciate your ongoing commitment to the HIM community.

Credentialed HI professionals will have through March 31, 2024, to complete the petition. This deadline was chosen so that we would have ample time to have follow-up discussions with AHIMA and CCHIIM before the changes go into effect.
