Pathway to Health IT Competency, Proficiency and Success: Everything You Need to Know about CPHIMS 

Certified Professional in Healthcare Information and Management Systems (CPHIMS) is a professional certification program for experienced healthcare information and management systems professionals.

Certification demonstrates that you meet a standard of professional body of knowledge and reach a milestone in your professional development. Many organizations require that candidates have certification and encourage current employees to obtain certification.

The rapid adoption of electronic health records (EHR) and implementation of digital health or eHealth strategy in many countries have created unprecedented demands for a skilled and trained workforce. Many healthcare organizations are actively seeking ways to establish high level of competency and proficiency for their Health IT team to meet the next generation patient care needs. This session will provide an overview of the contents for the Certified Professional in Healthcare Information and Management Systems (CPHIMS), the gold standard for health IT certification. The session will explain the key components of the exam, the psychometric testing principles and methods behind CPHIMS, and what typical formats of questions look like (recall, application and analysis questions). It will discuss the benefits and elements of an intensive CPHIMS study course, the eligibility and requirements to be a CPHIMS candidate, how to prepare and register for the exam, what you need to bring during the exam, tips to be mentally and physically ready for the exam, and what is required to maintain the CPHIMS credential. The session will also address the importance and significance of professional certification and continued education to be a successful and effective health IT professional.
