CHIA governance model
The CHIA program is supported by committees to maintain governance, content and support participants.
The Examination Committee (EC) is responsible for the overall content, deliverables, defensibility, integrity, quality and credibility of the CHIA examination and its associated product lines.
The EC is composed of reputable experts from a broad spectrum of health informatics organisations and provide accountability and credibility for CHIA across the sector.
The Examination Committee also:
- Decides the CHIA Competencies Framework for the examination
- Participates with the CHIA Partners to establish the standards for the examination
- Resolves issues and contributes to the development of examination materials
- Identifies potential areas for improvement
- Handles candidate appeals and complaints
