We're excited to share that Access offers domain-based and topics of interest communities for members, including COVID-19; Coding; CDI; Privacy and Security; and Data Analytics. Access also features new communities for robust and supportive discussions on topics such as:

  • Compliance
  • Advocacy and Public Policy
  • Health Information and Technology
  • Patient Identification and Matching
  • Payors and Providers
  • Trending Topics
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Each Component State Association (CSA) will have a dedicated Access community. In addition, private Access communities are also available for volunteer-based programs; for AHIMA trainer programs like ICD, CDI and Revenue Cycle; for educators.
