Ahima bylaws revision
AHIMA Bylaws Revision

  • Provide that the business and affairs of AHIMA shall be managed by the Board of Directors and state that the House of Delegates exists to govern the profession of HIM

  • Create a new role of Speaker of the House of Delegates as principal spokesperson and board liaison for the House, as well as a new role of a Speaker-elect

  • Establish new roles of Secretary and Treasurer of the Board of Directors (these were previously held by the executive director)

  • Address the right of AHIMA to establish affiliates (such as the AHIMA Foundation or CAHIIM) that have separate legal status from the association. It also addresses AHIMA’s right to establish bodies that do not have separate legal status, such as commissions, advisory bodies, and non-board committees

Code of ethics revision
Code of Ethics Revision

  • Clarified individuals the Code pertains to – AHIMA members and certificants based on relationship to CCHIIM.

  • Reordered the principles and guidelines so these are more prominent. Added a link to the principles if members would like to view these only.

  • Updated language to incorporate changes in healthcare and association management as well as technology.

  • Strengthened language based on recent ethics violations and inquiries that have come before the committee.


  • Diversity and Inclusion

    • The intent of this resolution is to advance AHIMA’s commitment to a culture that respects diversity and inclusion throughout its organization, the federation and the HIM profession at large.


  • HIM Professionals Manage the Quality of Health Data

    • The intent of the resolution is for HIM professionals to effectively manage the quality and integrity of health data to ensure the quality of patient care.


  • MPI in an Integrated Delivery System

    • The intent of this resolution is to ensure accurate patient or member identification utilizing a master patient (person) index in an integrated delivery system. An accurate master patient (person) index (MPI), whether in paper or electronic format, may be considered the most important resource in a healthcare facility because it is the link that tracks patient, person, or member activity within an organization and across patient care settings.
