NOTICE:  CAHIIM is currently recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), and has requested that CHEA conduct a recognition review in order to reaffirm this recognition.

As specified by the 2019 CHEA Recognition Policy and Procedures, CHEA recognition review includes an opportunity for parties independent of the accrediting organization under review to comment on whether the organization meets the CHEA recognition standards. Third-party comment may be either oral or written and is limited to the accrediting organization’s efforts to meet the CHEA recognition standards. This may include commentary from many different sources, such as other accrediting organizations, institutions and programs, or professional or higher education associations. The comments will assist the CHEA Committee on Recognition as it considers the applications for recognition.

Third-party comment, due no later than October 12, 2021, can be submitted to CHEA in written form, by mail, fax, or email to: Council for Higher Education Accreditation • One Dupont Circle, NW, Suite 510, Washington, DC 20036 • Phone: 202-955-6126 • Fax: 202-915-0818 • Email:

Oral comment can be made during the public sessions of the morning sessions of the CHEA Committee on Recognition meeting on November 17-18, 2021.

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.
