Founded in 1968 as the Accrediting Commission on Education for Health Services Administration (ACEHSA), it adopted its current name in 2004 to reflect a change in strategic direction. This came after its 2001 Orlando Forum, a meeting funded by the Kellogg Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and called to examine management and leadership preparation practices in the U.S. healthcare industry. As a result of the meeting, a task force was appointed, with key representatives of the practice and academic communities. The task force recommended changes in the accreditation process, and the name of the organization was changed.
CAHME has been granted recognition by the United States Department of Education (DOE) and Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) to accredit master's level-healthcare management programs in the United States and Canada. The Association of University Programs in Health Administration (AUPHA) requires master's programs to have CAHME accreditation before they can be considered full members. The CAHME works with the Association of University Programs in Health Administration, the American College of Hospital Administration, the American Public Health Association and the American Hospital Association to establish and oversee healthcare management education 
The most recent revision of the CAHME accreditation standards was published in April 2007.
