To reflect changes in the healthcare information and technology field, HIMSS has updated our existing CPHIMS™ and CAHIMS exams.

Review a complete list of changes to the CAHIMS program.

A CAHIMS demonstrates cross-functional competence in the healthcare, information technology and business environment in which they work. A CAHIMS has the ability to step into a healthcare organization with the foundational knowledge and exposure to add value in a variety of healthcare settings and roles.
