AHIMA certification distinguishes an individual as competent, knowledgeable, and committed to AHIMA's mission to lead
the health informatics and information management community to advance

The Commission on Certification for Health Informatics and Information Management (CCHIIM) manages and sets the strategic direction for the certifications. AHIMA certification is grounded in a tradition of excellence from a not-for-profit professional association that has been serving HIM professionals since 1928. When a person earns an AHIMA certification, they join a network of esteemed peers recognized nationally as best in the field.
