AHIMA Foundation
Established in 1962, the AHIMA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) philanthropic affiliate of AHIMA. The Foundation envisions the future of healthcare, and we prepare for that future with investments in research, workforce development, education, and innovative strategies that advance the HIM profession and, ultimately, better serve the healthcare community. The Foundation focuses on readying the HIM professionals of today to be the leaders of tomorrow. We operate under the values of philanthropy, innovation, leadership and integrity and strive to be recognized for excellence in health information leadership and research for the healthcare industry and the public. The AHIMA Foundation has worked closely with Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) to make health information resources and materials available through the Online Portal, including the HIM Career Map.

In addition, the AHIMA Foundation is pleased to participate in the following activities in coordination with LFCC:
  • Completion of a job analysis for AHIMA's Certified Healthcare Technology Specialist (CHTS) certification to garner feedback related to the positions and roles for which the CHTS is most appropriate and applicable.
  • Coordination of efforts related to the AHIMA Foundation's Managing the HIM Talent Pipeline (MTP) apprenticeship program, which will help 1,200 recent college graduates and career-changers take on healthcare information careers by 2020.
