NAHAM Certification Commission Releases Revised CHAM Exam Content Outline
The NAHAM Certification Commission is pleased to announce the release of the revised Certified Healthcare Access Manager (CHAM) exam content outline! The revised exam content outline will serve as the foundation for the CHAM examination, not only by providing framework for the elements of practice that will be tested, but also by establishing relevance and validity for the CHAM exam. The October 2016 CHAM testing window will be the first to utilize this content outline; the July testing window will not be affected. For those planning to take the CHAM Exam in October, the update CHAM Study Guide will be available in July.
