Master of Health Information Management Standards Revision Process 2021

Overview

CAHIIM develops and adopts Accreditation Standards that are the basis for programmatic review and
evaluation of degree granting programs in HI and HIM. The Standards provide the expectations and
requirements to establish a well-developed quality program.  Currently, the Master's degree programs in Health Information Management are evaluated under the 2008 MHIM Standards.

These standards are in the process of being revised by a diverse task force made up of CAHIIM Peer Reviewers, Health Information Management Accreditation Council (HIMAC) members, and program directors of MHIM programs.

The members of this volunteer work group are Mona Calhoun, Dr. Jude Haney, Dr. Debra Hamada, Anita Hazelwood, Jacqueline Moczygemba, Dr. Lisa Morton, Dr. Renae Spohn, and Dr. Amy Watters.
