AHIMA Council for Excellence in Education

Health information is complex, nuanced, and ever-changing. The AHIMA Council for Excellence in Education (CEE) was created to enhance the health information profession, plan for its future through education, and provide HI professionals with a way to get involved in the process.

The CEE advises AHIMA on education and workforce matters and their collective expertise strengthens the organization’s vision, mission, and strategies set by the AHIMA Board of Directors. The CEE also guides various AHIMA workgroups and the Professional Certificate Approval Program.

The CEE serves a three-fold purpose:

  1. The CEE sets the strategy for the academic community and serves as the liaison with the AHIMA Board, AHIMA Foundation Board, and AHIMA affiliates.  
  2. It serves as a coordinating and guiding body for the workgroups.  
  3. The CEE is responsible for reviewing, developing, and approving curricula for health information at all educational levels based on the feedback received from the workforce, industry, and AHIMA membership.
