Free Webinar - Data Accuracy and the Patient Experience On-Demand

Brought to you by the Haugen Consulting Group

Does your organization struggle with data accuracy? Have you examined what’s causing those repeated errors, or are you spinning your wheels, fixing errors on the back end? This webinar will discuss data accuracy and the importance a proactive approach has on the patient experience. We’ll discuss some common ways errors are created and the negative impact inaccurate data has on patient care, quality, and interoperability. A holistic approach to data accuracy requires consistent training, precise processes, and ongoing evaluation. Taking the time to investigate the root cause upfront can help stop the cycle of countless labor hours on costly reactive fixes. Spend an hour with The Haugen Consulting Group, where we’ll help you invest in the team you have to get the team you want. Click here for more information on this free webinar.

CHIMA Annual Meeting
May 5-6, 2022
Hyatt Regency – Aurora

We are so excited to announce that we will be having an in-person annual meeting in 2022. The 2022 in-person meeting is going to be a BIG ONE, as we have a lot of time to make up for. We have missed networking with our CHIMA friends. We are also working on some options that will allow us to provide some CEUs virtually, but at this point, we can’t make any promises. We will do our best to serve our members!

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
