About AHDI

The Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity (AHDI) was established in 1978 as part of an effort to achieve recognition for the medical transcription profession. In the beginning, the association focused on educating medical professionals about what medical transcriptionists do and how their work affects the quality of health care. When the U.S. Department of Labor granted medical transcriptionists their own job classification in 1999, it was an important milestone to getting the work recognized as much more than clerical. In 2012, AHDI adopted a new title—healthcare documentation specialists—to reflect the broad and extensive responsibilities and services they provide in the creation of accurate and comprehensive patient care records.

MISSION: AHDI leads, educates, and advocates for professional excellence and integrity in all aspects of healthcare documentation practices worldwide.

VISION: Optimal healthcare outcomes supported by complete and accurate patient health stories.
To fulfill our mission and work toward achieving our vision, we have established four strategic priority areas:

  • Member Community: AHDI serves members by fostering a professional and collaborative community to support their careers.
  • Visibility: AHDI promotes the value of our organization and its members to the healthcare documentation community.
  • Career Development: AHDI cultivates a flexible, well-trained, and credentialed healthcare documentation workforce.
  • Best Practices: AHDI utilizes the deep technical knowledge and talent of our members to develop evidence-based, contemporary best practices in healthcare documentation.
