Introduction: CAHIIM
The Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM) is an accrediting organization that has independent authority in all actions pertaining to the accreditation of educational programs in health informatics and health information management. Achieving CAHIIM accreditation signifies that a program has fulfilled rigorous standards and that it equips students with the necessary skills for successful careers in the field. Starting in 2024, CAHIIM is expanding its accreditation services to include Health Science programs. The Health Science Accreditation Council is actively working on developing Accreditation Standards and a model curriculum to facilitate the review process. These Standards and curriculum are in the process of being made available for public comment.
CAHIIM – Public Interest
CAHIIM serves the public interest by operating in a consistent manner with all applicable ethical, business, and accreditation best practices. Accreditation is a voluntary, self-regulatory process by which nongovernmental associations recognize educational programs found to meet or exceed standards for educational quality. Accreditation also assists in the further improvement of these educational programs as related to resources invested, processes followed, and outcomes achieved.
CAHIIM develops and adopts Accreditation Standards that are the basis for programmatic review and evaluation of certain degree-granting and non-degree-granting programs. The Standards provide the expectations and requirements needed to establish a well-developed quality program.
Bachelor of Health Science Accreditation Standards
CAHIIM welcomes public comments, edits, changes and feedback for the CAHIIM Bachelor of Health Science Accreditation Standards.

The modified Standards are now being released for the second public comment period.
