History

Northeast Pa AAHAM Chapter is the Pennsylvania chapter of the American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management (AAHAM). AAHAM is the premier professional organization in healthcare administrative management. AAHAM was founded in 1968 as the American Guild of Patient Account Management. Initially formed to serve the interests of hospital patient account managers, AAHAM has evolved into a national membership association that represents a broad-based constituency of healthcare professionals.
