AHIMA Foundation's Core Values

AHIMA Foundation's Core Values

The AHIMA Foundation champions every person's right to access, understand, and use their health information with confidence.

What We Believe

Health information is a force for greater good.

The healthcare community has a responsibility
to unlock this potential for public benefit.

Power must be in the hands of consumers.

People must be heard, and have agency to drive their own health journey and legacy of their information.

Serving the whole person, families, and communities.

For health information to become truly meaningful it must transcend sick care and individual benefit.

Trust and technology are cornerstones.

To realize benefits of health information, cultivating trust is an imperative to drive individual agency and public benefit.

Leadership and partnership across the expansive and evolving ecosystem is required.

A call-to-action to steward health information to deliver its potential as it flows from and through existing and new territories.
