Parsing the Language of Continuous HIM Education: CCHIIM, Credentials, Certificates, and Certifications
CCHIIM plays a key role in ensuring that today’s HIM professionals have the needed skills and competencies to navigate the healthcare landscape currently shifting under their feet.

The Commission on Certification for Health Informatics and Information Management (CCHIIM) has announced it will relaunch the Certified Coding Specialist (CCS) exam starting August 1. The move comes after the exam was suspended for four months following a suspected security breach of the test.
