Creating a user account is required to purchase a product or to reflect organizational or professional membership to access online member benefits and resources.
A user account may be created without a membership to track transactions, such as a purchase on AHA's Store, or to purchase a professional membership.
For more information about the types of memberships, see the following articles: How do I know if my hospital or system is an AHA Member? or Individual Membership in Professional Member Groups (PMGs)
Click the “Register/Login” button at the top of the page. From the login page, click the “Create an Account” button.
Enter your email address. If an account already exists with that email address, you will be prompted to click “Forgot Password” to reset your password. Otherwise, you will be directed to the next step.
If you are employed by a hospital or health system, please link your account to your organization's record. If your organization is a member, this will confer your organization's member permissions on your account so that you may access members-only online resources.
There are two ways to find and link to your organization: through your email domain or zip code search.
Email match: If the domain name of your email matches a hospital or health system in AHA’s database, the name of an organization will be displayed. Click “Link my user account to this organization” if the organization is correct.
Search by zip code: Click the “Searching for your organization by its zip code” button, and type in the organization's zip code. Find your organization in the list and click the “Link my user account to this organization” button.
What if I can’t find my organization?: If you do not work for a hospital or health system, your organization might not be in AHA’s database. If your employer's record is not found, click “Continue with no organization affiliation.” You will be able to manually enter an organization during the next step.
Complete the account creation form by entering your contact information. Choose a password, and click the “Create Account” button at the bottom of the page.
