Staff Report to the Senior Department Official on Recognition Compliance Issues. Recommendation Page: Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education
US Department of Education
The agency currently known as the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME) was originally founded in 1968 by several professional health-related organizations. The agency was originally known as the Accrediting Commission on Graduate Education for Hospital Administration (ACGEHA). To better reflect the broad range of opportunities existing within the health administration profession, the organization changed its name in 1976 to the Accrediting Commission on Education for Health Services Administration (ACEHSA). In October 2004, the current name was adopted. In addition, the wording of the agency's scope of recognition was revised early in 2007 from "health services administration" to "healthcare management" to reflect the name change. This paper presents the recommendations of the staff of the National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity (NACIQI) concerning CAHME's petition for continued recognition.
