Welcome to NHHIMA
Welcome to the New Hampshire Health Information Management Association (NHHIMA) website! NHHIMA is the New Hampshire component association of our national organization, 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.

NHHIMA Mentoring Program
The NHHIMA Board members collectively have years of experience in a variety of healthcare settings, developing a vast amount of knowledge and a number of networking contacts throughout those years. Whether you are new to the Health Information Management (HIM) field or if you have been in the field awhile and want to learn more about NHHIMA and AHIMA you are encouraged and invited to actively seek the advice and experiential knowledge of our Board members.
Volunteerism is an important means to develop your network of HIM contacts. Partner with a Board member and offer your knowledge by participating on a committee such as Program and Education or learn about the roles of each Board member.
Consider being a candidate for a Board position now or when you have attained your AHIMA credentials. You are instrumental in leading the HIM profession into the future.
Contact information for each Board member is on our About Us – Executive Board section of the website. At the same location, you will also find the job descriptions for each Board position.
