About CHIA

Health informatics is fundamental to the delivery of healthcare

The Certified Health Informatician Australasia (CHIA) program is managed by the Australasian Institute of Digital Health and was developed to address the lack of formal recognition of health informatics knowledge and skills in Australia.

It builds on the CHIA credential originally developed in 2013 in a collaboration between the Health Informatics Society of Australia (HISA), the Australasian College of Health Informatics (ACHI)* and the Health Information Management Association of Australia (HIMAA) to formally recognise the breadth of specialised knowledge in this healthcare workforce.

CHIA certification helps raise the profile of health informaticians, contributes to wider recognition of the profession, and clearly defines the knowledge underpinning this discipline. CHIA is an exclusive and unique industry professional certification that will help you stand out from the crowd and be recognised for your skills and experience in digital health.
