Recertification Changes Update

Greetings,

On behalf of the MdHIMA 2023-2024 board members, I wish to provide an update on the decision of the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and The Commission on Certification for Health Informatics and Information Management (CCHIIM).

Initially, CCHIIM sent a letter stating that 40% of Continuing Education Units must come directly from AHIMA and 20% of additional CEUs earned beyond the minimum required, that is, within the last three months of the certification period, will roll over.

CEUs, to qualify for rollover, must come from AHIMA, Component Association (CA), and AHIMA-approved continuing education (ACEP). On December 14th, 2023, AHIMA and CCHIIM deferred these requirements to January 1, 2025, and not January 2024, as originally published in the December Newsletter.

Attached is the CCHIIM revised decision.
