Certification Center

 

The American Hospital Association Certification Center (AHA-CC) designs and administers Certification Programs to recognize mastery of well-defined bodies of knowledge within health care management disciplines. Achieving an AHA certification demonstrates to patients, health care organizations, and the public, that the health care professional has met national performance standards specific to their job role.

 

CMRP certified professionals carry the mark of supply chain excellence with proven knowledge of effectively managing the quality and affordability of patient care.

 

CPHRM certified professionals offer expertise in minimizing risk in a health care setting through proven knowledge of clinical and patient safety programs, risk financing, and compliance with federal regulations.

 

CHESP certified professionals have demonstrated advanced knowledge of maintaining the environment of care.

 

CHFM certified professionals have proven expertise in optimizing the health care physical environment to keep patients safe and building operations running efficiently.

 

CHC certified professionals have a detailed understanding of completing construction and renovation projects in a nuanced health care setting.

 

CHHR certified professionals prove knowledgeable of health care's workforce needs and offer strategic guidance in interfacing HR programs and practices across a health system.

 
 
 

In addition, the AHA-CC provides contracted services to the American Organization for Nursing Leadership (AONL) in support of its Nurse Executive and Nurse Manager Certification Programs.
