"AHIMA will no longer support and therefore will discontinue products related to Information Governance, Informatics, Standards, and Consumer Engagement. This means that products dedicated to these topics will be discontinued and phased out during 2019. We are aware that individuals will continue to practice in these areas and will seek additional resources to support their needs."
"Data Analytics-related products in their current form will also be discontinued. AHIMA believes that there is a need to better define Data Analytics for the HIM profession. While we understand and value the importance of analytics to the profession, we want to develop a clearer understanding of how the HIM professional works within the Data Analytics field and how AHIMA should support these professionals to advance and position HIM. Our goal is to reimagine our Data Analytics products and services to better direct and support current and future professionals"
"Potential changes to related certifications (CPHI and CHDA) will be under consideration by Commission on Certification for Health Informatics and Information Management and the Board of Directors. We will keep you informed as these decisions are made."
