CHIA: The independent validation of your
digital health skills

Be acknowledged for your health informatics achievements

CHIA is a unique credentialing program for health informatics. The CHIA credential demonstrates that candidates meet the Health Informatics core competencies to perform effectively as a health informatics professional in a broad range of practice settings.

The certification has been designed to address the lack of formal recognition for health informatics skills in the Australian health workforce. This program has been developed by HISA, ACHI and HIMAA and includes leaders in health informatics across the health & IT sector and academia.
