If you currently work with healthcare data, seek to be recognized as an expert in your field, or want opportunities to expand your skills, potential job opportunities, and earnings, then AHIMA’s Certified Health Data Analyst (CHDA) certification can help you reach your goals. And AHIMA’s CHDA Exam Prep Workshop can help you earn this one-of-a-kind certification. Join us for an intensive, one-day, in-person meeting designed to prepare the healthcare professional to sit for the CHDA examination. Through in-class, in-depth examples and exercises, you will review the three domains covered in the exam: Data Management, Data Analytics, and Data Reporting. The prestigious CHDA certification provides practitioners with the knowledge to acquire, manage, analyze, interpret, and transform data into accurate, consistent, and timely information, while balancing the “big picture” strategic v ision with day-to-day details. CHDA-credentialed professionals exhibit broad organizational knowledge and the ability to communicate with individuals and groups at multiple levels, both internal and external. If your passion lies in health data analysis and you want to elevate your position in the field, then this session is for you. The workshop includes an exam preparation book, test-preparation tips, and a post-workshop assessment that can be used as a practice exam.
