Time is running out - important event!

Information Governance (IG) has become a necessary function for health care providers as the industry is flooded with reams of data and electronic information. How do we ensure that the data is reliable, trustworthy, accurate, secure, timely?  
IG seeks to answer those questions and provide a framework that health care providers can adopt to create a culture of information-trust within the organization.  

AHIMA and THIMA/THA are cosponsoring an important event that YOU should attend!

CCHIIM approves an extension of the deadline to earn and record ICD-10 CEUs

CCHIIM re-evaluated the ICD-10 CEU Requirement and approved an extension of the deadline to earn and record ICD-10 CEUs.  Prior to this extension, policy deadlines were both the last day an individual could earn ICD-10 CEUs in addition to having their credential(s) placed into inactive status.  The new deadline to earn and record the required number of ICD-10 CEUs for RHIT, RHIA, CCS, CCA, CCS-P, and CHPS holders is March 31, 2016.  As required by the current policy, holders of these credentials will be placed in an inactive status on their original deadline date of either December 31, 2015 or January 31, 2016, but will still be able to earn and report CEUs until March 31, 2016 in order to avoid the credentials being moved to a revoked status.
