CCHIIM Not Moving Forward with RHIT+ Specialty Credential

At this time, Certification for Health Informatics and Information Management (CCHIIM) has elected not to move forward with the HIM Reimagined (HIMR) recommendation for the RHIT+ certification.

CCHIIM understands that there is more than one way to designate specialty knowledge, such as through micro-credentialing or certificates instead of certifications. For this reason, and as a result of the concerns voiced by AHIMA members about a potential change to the existing RHIT certification, CCHIIM reached the conclusion to not move in the direction of the RHIT+ specialty credential.

CCHIIM's responsibility is to conduct the necessary research to validate all AHIMA certifications for the purpose of maintaining the highest industry standards related to our certifications. On an ongoing basis, CCHIIM will explore new and emerging ways, along with the traditional job analysis, to designate skills and knowledge for not only the RHIT, but for all AHIMA certifications.

Listen to the webinar on demand now.
