The Healthcare Financial Management Association recognizes selected members with the Certified Healthcare Financial Professional designation. Those professionals have demonstrated competence in one or more of the following health-care financial fields: Managed Care, Patient Accounts, Group-Practice Management, or Hospital Finance.
Named originally in 1996 as a "Certified Managed Care Professional". In
1997 the HFMA restructured its certification to include two levels of
designation: CHFP and FHFMA.
