Welcome to CHIMA
CHIMA is a component state association of the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and has over 1,000 members. The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) is the premier association of health information management (HIM) professionals worldwide. Serving 52 affiliated component state associations and more than 103,000 health information professionals, it is recognized as the leading source of “HIM knowledge,” a respected authority for rigorous professional education and training.
HIM professionals work in all kinds of healthcare settings, from hospitals and physician’s offices to nursing homes, mental health facilities, health maintenance organizations (HMO), and other insurance companies. Many HIM professionals have become independent consultants, who contract with healthcare providers, insurers, and other healthcare industry organizations. Some even work in law firms and information systems organizations.
