Mission

Empowering people to impact health in Nebraska, in a world where trusted information transforms health and healthcare by connecting people, systems, and ideas. We see the person connected to the data, ensuring their information stays human–because when information stays human, it stays relevant. This perspective is critical to the success of all modern health organizations.

Petition Regarding New CCHIIM Requirements

Several Component Associations have developed a petition to allow our members to oppose the new CCHIIM requirement that 40% of continuing education credit must be obtained from AHIMA.

Credentialed HI professionals will have through March 31st to complete the petition. This deadline was chosen so that we would have ample time to have follow-up discussions with AHIMA and CCHIIM before the changes go into effect.
