What Does it Mean to be a Member of AAHAM?
The American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management (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.
AAHAM is the only national organization dedicated to the revenue cycle of both management and the front line staff.
Membership in AAHAM helps you work smarter, advance your career, and offers you access to a wealth of revenue cycle information. The association recognizes that professional development is one of the key reasons that many individuals become members. To this end, one of AAHAM's primary focuses is the professional development of its members.
We provide education and training for staff and managers, as well as offer a nationally recognized certification program in the form of publications, conferences and seminars, bench marking, professional certification and numerous networking opportunities for increasing the skills and knowledge that are necessary to function effectively in today's health care environment. AAHAM has 31 active chapters across the US and abroad, all offering superior education and networking on a local level.
