Preapproval of CECs Program

Beginning February 25, 2014, AHDI and the Credentialing Commission for Healthcare Documentation (CCHD) will be releasing a revised program for the preapproval of credit-worthy educational activities. The updated "Preapproval Program for CEC Activities" will offer content providers a special logo indicating their content has been preapproved and list the preapproved activities on a downloadable guide marketed and distributed to CMTs and CHDSs. An administrative fee will go into effect with the revised program, with fees ranging from $25 to $75. Preapproval will remain free of charge for AHDI components and state/regional associations. Watch the AHDI website for complete information in the coming weeks.
