The Nevada Health Information Management Association (NvHIMA) is a component state association of our national organization, the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).
AHIMA is the premier association of health information management (HIM) professionals worldwide. Serving 52 affiliated component state associations and more than 103,000 health information professionals, it is recognized as the leading source of “HIM knowledge,” a respected authority for rigorous professional education and training.

The unique knowledge and skills that AHIMA members possess are critical for classifying and analyzing health information, transitioning from paper to computer-based medical records, and enhancing data quality—all accomplished while maintaining patient confidentiality and information security.
