A Health Information Management (HIM) professional has the responsibility to complete continuing professional education (CPE) credits to maintain their professional designation of CHIM (Certified in Health Information Managment).

Professional development (PD) constitutes new learning to maintain professional credentials, as well as to stay current in the rapidly changing landscape of healthcare, information management and information technology, all critical areas for an HIM professional to be in the know. PD can include formal coursework, conferences and online learning and a number of other initiatives. Ideally PD should include an evaluative stage as in the Professional Practice Brief (PPB) modules which incorporate a quiz component to test ones understanding of the PPB. There are a variety of approaches to professional development, and we look forward to expanding our professional development offerings to the membership.
