Time Sensitive: Renew Your AHIMA Recertification

If your recertification cycle expires at the end of the year and you have not yet met the requirements for renewal, time is running out. Click here to verify your status and complete the recertification process. Avoid an inactive status by visiting your CEU center and submitting the required CEUs with your supporting documentation.

When you purchase a membership prior to or on the recertification expiration date, you are eligible for a recertification discount.
As a reminder, each year a percentage of credential holders are randomly selected for an audit, so be sure to upload all CEU documentation into your CEU Center at the time you report your CEUs. It's a good idea to also keep your documentation for one full year past your certification renewal date.
More information on recertification requirements can be found in this Recertification Guide and on

Dr. Lisa L Campbell is an expert-level health care professional who began her career in 1992 as a Certified Medical Assistant (CMA). While working as a CMA, when she was not in the exam room with the provider, she was immersed in the operational side of the Physician’s office and was introduced to one of her many passions, medical coding, health record documentation and revenue cycle management.

After a decade of working in the Physician’s office, she ventured into a director role at Chicago’s major public hospital. While working as a director, she realized that there was a need to help physician practices navigate through the complex maze of regulatory challenges associated with their revenue cycle and from this revelation she established Physician Practice Resources, Inc. in 2002.

Throughout her career, she has gained expertise in Clinical Documentation Improvement, Health Information Management, Health Care Management, Medical Coding, Revenue Cycle Management, Provider and Staff Training and is a Professional Speaker.

Lastly, over the last 29 years, she has earned various certifications through the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) and is an active member of both organizations.
