Leaders in Health Innovation Require Leaders in Health Information.
AHIMA-certified professionals offer a critical perspective on health information and the people connected to it. Their unique insights help organizations forecast where the industry moves next. This means hiring decisions are critical events.
Don’t miss out on emerging opportunities. Insist upon an AHIMA professional for your team.
Healthcare data breaches cost 65% more than data breaches in other industries.* It’s vital that inpatient and outpatient organizations maintain rigorous security protocols.
Hire an AHIMA-certified professional to protect your patients, your business, and yourself. We educate leaders in privacy and security, data analytics and CDI.
Employers can trust a resume that bears an AHIMA certification. The venerable National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) accredits our CCS®, CCS-P®, RHIT®, and RHIA® certification programs as being in compliance with national and international standards.
