Welcome to the Oregon Health Information Management Association

Health information is human information.

Health information impacts wellbeing.

The Oregon Health Information Management Association (OrHIMA) is a community of healthcare professionals engaged in collecting, maintaining, and protecting the privacy of health information.

OrHIMA is a component association of the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).  AHIMA is a global nonprofit association of health information (HI) professionals with more than 71,000 members and more than 100,000 credentials in the field. The AHIMA mission of empowering people to impact health drives our members and credentialed HI professionals to ensure that health information is accurate, complete, and available to patients and providers. Our leaders work at the intersection of healthcare, technology, and business and are found in data integrity and information privacy job functions worldwide.

Petition Regarding New CCHIIM Requirements

Several Component Associations have developed a petition to allow our members to oppose the new CCHIIM requirement that 40% of continuing education credit must be obtained from AHIMA.

Credentialed HI professionals will have through March 31st to complete the petition. This deadline was chosen so that we would have ample time to have follow-up discussions with AHIMA and CCHIIM before the changes go into effect.
