Welcome to the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management (AAHAM).

Our mission is to be the premier professional organization in healthcare administrative services in the Delaware Valley. Through our local efforts and the support of our national organization, we provide quality member services and leadership in the areas of education, communication, representation, professional standards and certification.

The Philadelphia Chapter has the unique distinction of being the founder of the American Guild of Patient Account Managers, which is now AAHAM. The guild was started in 1968 by Philadelphia area Hospital Patient Accounting Leaders. Their primary goal was to form a membership group where Hospital Patient Accounting leaders could converse about the changing healthcare environment and create a strong foundation to build relationships with the payers, vendors and other trade organizations. AAHAM has evolved into a national organization representing more than 20 states and has now expanded to India. With over 36 chapters, the membership has grown to almost 3,000 members.  AAHAM’s mission continues to focus on legislative regulatory changes that affect providers. AAHAM is a premier professional development organization offering certification on both the professional and technical level.
