Petition Regarding New CCHIIM Requirements

If you recall, AHIMA notified its membership via email that CCHIIM had changed the CEU requirement. This modification would require 40% of the CEUs earned directly from AHIMA-earned CEUs. An update followed, also via email, on 12/14/2023, deferring the 40% AHIMA CEU requirement implementation until no earlier than January 1, 2025, to provide AHIMA members ample time to understand the changes and plan accordingly.

NMHIMA membership, below is the petition link circulated by other AHIMA CAs allowing members to oppose the new CCHIIM requirement voluntarily. Credentialed HI professionals will have until March 31, 2024, to complete the petition if they oppose the new CCHIM requirement. Please do your research and make the decision that you feel is best for you.

Should you have any questions on this, please don’t hesitate to contact your NMHIMA board.

Jennifer Sandoval, CCA
NMHIMA Board President

Recruiting for NMHIMA Volunteers

We encourage volunteerism at all levels, from small tasks and virtual participation to serving as committee members and leadership positions. Volunteering for NMHIMA benefits members and the profession. Strategic planning is only successful through involvement and requires more than involvement from NMHIMA Board Members.
