Petition Regarding New CCHIIM Requirements

Several Component Associations have developed a petition to allow our members to oppose the new CCHIIM requirement that 40% of continuing education credit must be obtained from AHIMA.

Credentialed HI professionals will have through March 31st to complete the petition. This deadline was chosen so that we would have ample time to have follow-up discussions with AHIMA and CCHIIM before the changes go into effect.
