Giving Tuesday

With just a few days until Giving Tuesday,

AHIMA is challenging you to help them raise

$100,000 to combat low health literacy.


Will You Help?

With your donation, we can make a difference to the 91 million adult Americans who demonstrate low health literacy.  

Here is how your contribution will make an impact:

  • Developing tools and resources designed to empower patients to advocate for their good health and wellness
  • Launching community programs across the country to eliminate barriers to health information access and understanding
  • Funding continued research into the technological, cultural, and socio-economic dynamics of low health literacy.

AHIMA Recertification

AHIMA Recertification 

If your recertification cycle expires at the end of this year and you have not yet met the requirements for renewal, please visit AHIMA's certification page to verify your status and take the necessary steps to complete the recertification process. Avoid an inactive status by visiting your CEU center and submitting the required CEUs with your supporting documentation. To take advantage of the member discount on recertification fees, you must purchase a membership prior to or on the recertification expiration date. Once the membership is paid, your recertification discount will be applied. As a reminder, each year a percentage of credential holders are randomly selected for an audit. Individuals selected for audits will be required to submit verifiable documentation (for example, certificates of attendance or similar materials) for each activity listed in their CEU center. More information on recertification requirements can be found in this Recertification Guide and here
