Now I’m sure a lot of you folks are familiar with the CPHIMS certification by HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society)
CPHIMS or Certified Professional in Healthcare Information and Management Systems, is a professional certification program for healthcare information and management systems professionals. The CPHIMS credential is recognized throughout the industry as the international standard of healthcare IT knowledge.
As some of you might know, I serve as an advisor to the CPHIMS Technical Committee (Yes, that’s right, the actual committee that governs the CPHIMS Program and designs the Exam).
The Committee oversees performance of the exam, reviews and refines test items, develops new editions of the exam, contributes to plans for marketing and promotion of the certification, and provides consultation for maintenance of a quality program with the guidance of our psychometric consultants.
Now for those who knows me well in my professional life, I advocate extensively on the adoption of the CPHIMS certification in the South East Asia region, especially Singapore and Malaysia.
Recently, I volunteer to conduct the CPHIMS Review Course for the upcoming HIMSS Asia Pacific Conference in Singapore (in September) but I just received notification that I can’t serve as the instructor as there is a potential conflict of interest (as I serve on the actual CPHIMS Technical Committee). Ouch.
The good news is, the next day, I received the official invitation to continue my term as an advisor for another year.
I guess I must be doing a good job 🙂
