ABOUT AAHAM Nebraksa Aksarben Chapter

Aksarben AAHAM is the Nebraska chapter of the American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management (AAHAM). AAHAM is the premier professional organization in healthcare administrative management. AAHAM was founded in 1968 as the American Guild of Patient Account Management.
