Health informatics is an interprofessional specialty that exists at the confluence of three major domains: health, information science and technology, and social and behavioral science. As with all other health professions, health informatics is the practice of using data, information, and knowledge for clinical care, scientific inquiry, decision making, and problem solving to improve the health, safety, and effectiveness of those working and being cared for within the system of health care delivery.

Health information management is the practice of managing medical information vital to providing quality patient care, sound fiscal management of medical resources, and data governance supporting confidentiality of patient records. Management of this data includes acquisition, analysis, and protection of digital and traditional types of information.

The CAHIIM Board of Directors consists of ten Directors and two Public Members. The Board is charged with developing accreditation standards, and then assessing whether the programs meet these standards. The Board is responsible for the accreditation of programs, and, in conjunction with the Accreditation Councils, the Board establishes and maintains accreditation standards, policies, and procedures for accreditation of educational programs in the health informatics and health information management professions.
The Accreditation Councils make recommendations on program reviews through established practices, revise and update the Accreditation Standards and oversee the Peer Reviewers.
