42 new CHIA graduates sponsored, strengthening the SA Health workforce by a total of 170 informaticians

12 Dec 2023

We’re thrilled to wel­come 42 new CHIA grad­u­ates to enhance SA Health’s infor­mat­ics capabilities. 

Health Infor­mat­ics’ is the sci­ence of using data and infor­ma­tion to improve health­care ser­vices and health out­comes. Cer­ti­fied Health Infor­mati­cian Aus­trala­sia (CHIA) is an inter­na­tion­al­ly recog­nised cer­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­gram offered through the peak health infor­mat­ics body, Aus­tralasian Insti­tute of Dig­i­tal Health (AIDH).

The self-guid­ed study pro­gram is designed for pro­fes­sion­als in health infor­mat­ics and infor­ma­tion tech­nol­o­gy roles, and once cer­ti­fied, par­tic­i­pants can demon­strate exper­tise in health infor­mat­ics prin­ci­ples, con­cepts, meth­ods and skills, with the abil­i­ty to apply these in the workplace. 

On the 11th Decem­ber, Tina Hardin, our Exec­u­tive Direc­tor of Clin­i­cal Infor­mat­ics and Inno­va­tion, host­ed a grad­u­a­tion-cum-net­work­ing event to mark the achieve­ment of the 42 new CHIAs and empha­sised our com­mit­ment to build­ing a stronger, data-dri­ven health­care future for South Australia
