About Ahios

Companies to which healthcare organizations outsource aspects of the health information management process — for example, transcription, coding, document management and release of information (ROI) — have arisen in response to the healthcare industry’s need to perform these services more economically and with greater knowledge and precision.

Established in 1996, AHIOS’s mission is to strengthen and enhance the health information management outsourcing industry while promoting excellence in the handling and dissemination of confidential patient-identifiable information. To this end, a large component of our work as an organization is involved with pursuing fair and equitable treatment of the industry through legislative, regulatory and legal processes.

Ultimately, our goal as an organization is to ensure that healthcare organizations will always have cost-effective resources for outsourcing their health information management functions — and that in outsourcing they gain not only fiscal relief but access to a cadre of specialists who have the industry’s most advanced training and tools at their disposal for safeguarding one of healthcare’s most precious and complex resources: confidential patient information.
