Equiping the health information workforce
The technologies for processing health information evolve quickly, and the AHIMA Foundation equips the health information workforce with the tools necessary to drive the field forward. We provide unemployed and underemployed professionals with opportunities to increase their skills and expand their career trajectories. Our leadership and training efforts make sure health information professionals have the knowledge base necessary to process health information and make sure health consumers and providers have the information they need to make critical healthcare decisions.
