University of Phoenix Certified as an Approved Education Partner

The Arizona HIMSS Chapter would like to congratulate the University of Phoenix School of Health Services Administration at the College of Health Professions for its designation as a HIMSS Approved Education Partner (AEP). They are the first educational institution in Arizona to be granted AEP status, which reflects HIMSS’s rigorous standards for effective health information technology and healthcare education.

Not only will this partnership provide an immediate increase in prestige and credibility for the University of Phoenix, but it will also positively impact the entire state of Arizona by offering its residents a local education source for advanced knowledge in health IT and healthcare, as well as sitting for the CAHIMS and CPHIMS exams.

In order to receive AEP status, applicant activity course descriptions are required to be reviewed by an active CPHIMS or CAHIMS credential holder. The Arizona HIMSS Chapter was pleased to facilitate the review by a seasoned and highly respected board member and healthcare orgainzation executive leader. AZ HIMSS is eager to offer support and guidance to educational organizations looking to elevate their healthcare programs by becoming a HIMSS Approved Education Partner.
