CHIA on the move
It’s a huge achievement to become a certified health informatician – just ask our 225+ CHIA graduates. Certification acknowledges a person’s comprehensive digital health knowledge gained over many years. As a CHIA, working in a rapidly evolving health environment, it is important to maintain your skills and knowledge through continuing professional development. Today the CHIA partners - HISA, ACHI and HIMAA - are pleased to launch the CHIA recertification program which will ensure we continue to grow professional assurance for digital health. With several large organisations coming in to CHIA this year, the digital health workforce is building momentum. Watch this space!
