Who We Are
The American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management (AAHAM) is the premier professional organization in healthcare administrative management. Our mission is to provide education, certification, networking, and advocacy for healthcare revenue cycle professionals in the areas of reimbursement, admitting and registration, data management, medical records, patient relations and so much more.
AAHAM was founded in 1968 as the American Guild of Patient Account Management. Initially formed to serve the interests of hospital patient account managers, AAHAM has evolved into a national membership association that represents a broad-based constituency of healthcare professionals.
Professional development of its members is one of the primary goals of the association. Publications, conferences and seminars, benchmarking, professional certification and networking offer numerous opportunities for increasing the skills and knowledge that are necessary to function effectively in today’s health care environment.
AAHAM actively represents the interests of healthcare administrative management professionals through a comprehensive program of legislative and regulatory monitoring and its participation in industry groups such as ANSI, DISA and NUBC. AAHAM is a major force in shaping the future of health care administrative management.
AAHAM is dedicated to giving you the inside intelligence you need to succeed professionally. As a member, you have access to information on critical topics, networking and certification; to not only survive in today’s ever changing and challenging healthcare financial management environment, but to be educated, prepared and thrive!
