CAHIIM Accreditation Process Virtual Conference 2020

Dates: Apr 27 - Apr 30, 2020
Date: Apr 30, 2020



Due to the ongoing threat of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and given that Illinois has issued a disaster proclamation (Illinois’s version of a state of emergency), CAHIIM has made the decision to move the Accreditation Process Conference, scheduled to take place in Chicago on April 27-30, 2020, to a virtual conference. The health and wellbeing of our staff, our volunteers and participants is a top priority, and at this time, we feel this precautionary step is an important one to take. The content of the conference remains the same and will be offered live with the ability to interact with presenters and CAHIIM staff.

Please be aware that cancellations must be made by April 5, 2020. Please refer to the cancellation policy below for further information.


This Virtual Conference is designed to assist programs seeking initial or continuing CAHIIM accreditation.  Attendees will learn to prepare for the process, review the Accreditation Standards and curriculum requirements, examine the CAHIIM expectations for quality assessment, and assess overall program readiness.

The Conference provides an opportunity to meet virtually with CAHIIM staff and walk through the steps to using the web-based online CAHIIM Accreditation System (CAS) and get advice on the accreditation process and instructions on how to prepare the required documentation within the Self-Assessment process. This year CAHIIM we welcome an industry expert who will guide participants and go over the intricacies of crafting and executing a strategic plan.
