The purpose of the demonstration program is to create a community of early adopters to inform future HIM education through the mutual sharing of knowledge between the program, CAHIIM and professional partners. Demonstration Programs will be the first group of programs to be trained in competency-based education (CBE), implement the new future education model and engage in the CAHIIM reaccreditation process.
To support a transparent and fair process the demonstration programs and the sponsoring education institution will agree to participate in the reaccreditation process which includes paying the reaccreditation fee (“Comprehensive Program Review Fee”) of $8,300. More information regarding fees can be found here.
- If the program receives reaccreditation as a demonstration program, it will adjust its program reaccreditation cycle that was originally granted by CAHIIM. For example: If the demonstration program receives reaccreditation in the 4th quarter of 2025 the new cycle would be 2032-2033 for reaccreditation.
