Cer­ti­fied Health Infor­mati­cian Aus­trala­sia (CHIA) Program

CHIA is a pro­fes­sion­al cer­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­gram in health infor­mat­ics, and is col­lab­o­ra­tion between the Aus­tralasian Insti­tute of Dig­i­tal Health and HIMAA.

The pro­gram is aimed at work­ers across health infor­mat­ics and infor­ma­tion tech­nol­o­gy roles, and once cer­ti­fied, par­tic­i­pants can demon­strate exper­tise in health infor­mat­ics prin­ci­ples, con­cepts, meth­ods and skills, and the abil­i­ty to apply these in the workplace.

What is the cur­rent sta­tus of the sponsorship?

Appli­ca­tions are cur­rent­ly closed. 

We offered 100 CHIA cer­ti­fi­ca­tions in 2020 to eli­gi­ble par­tic­i­pants to upskill the South Aus­tralian health work­force in clin­i­cal infor­mat­ics. Due to over­whelm­ing demand we’re plan­ning on run­ning run a sec­ond round of the program.
