The HI Accreditation Council (HIAC) makes recommendations on program reviews through established processes. They review and revise the HI Accreditation Standards (at least every five years) in conjunction with the Board. They abide by the core values and code of conduct for CAHIIM decision-makers and contribute to the CAHIIM year-end summary. The HIAC oversees the Peer Reviewers who serve the Council by establishing and maintaining a set of qualifications for Peer Reviewers, approving appointment of new Peer Reviewers, and reviewing site visitors and program evaluations.
The Council holds at least one face-to-face meetings annually and monthly conference calls to handle the caseload of reviews.
