Council for Excellence in Education (CEE)
In 2002, the Education Strategy Committee (ESC) was formed. Nine years later the group voted to establish a new structure that became the Council of Excellence in Education (CEE). The CEE was created to enhance the health information management (HIM) profession, plan for its future through education, and provide HIM professionals with a way to get involved in the process.
Academic Curricula Competencies
The curriculum competency maps were built to reflect changes in the workforce. Professionals in health information management (HIM), industry leaders, and educators developed these maps as a guide to adequately prepare students in HIM.
Academic Faculty Resources
Learn about the resources available to educators including webinars, CourseShare, newsletters, online community, and special meetings.
Professional Certificate Approval Programs (PCAP)
