Townhall Series

As a program director at a CAHIIM Accredited program, you have exclusive access to our monthly CAHIIM Townhalls! Each month CAHIIM determines a topic of interest that the Townhall will focus on. The Townhall will address the monthly topic and then there will be a Q&A session with all the participants. Topics range from how to utilize your advisory board, to identifying free resources for your program. The Townhall takes place on the last Wednesday of every month. If you can’t join us live, you can listen to a recorded Townhall session on CATS!

CATS Training


The CAHIIM Forum provides a place for accredited program directors and faculty to discuss topics related to CAHIIM accreditation.  Launched on October 28, 2020, the forum initially contains topics limited to CAHIIM presentations, in order to facilitate more robust discussion in these areas, but the number of topics is expected to increase over time.

If you would like to join the CAHIIM Forum, please register at the link below.  Please allow up to 24 hours for your registration to be processed; you will receive a confirmation email once your account is active.
