Certified Health Informatics Systems Professional – CHISP

By on November 20, 2012

The Certified Health Informatics Systems Professional – CHISP  certification represents technical professionals who specialize in health IT.

The American Society of Health Informatics Managers (ASHIM) awards the CHISP designation to people who have demonstrated skills in computer science, healthcare regulations, data security, data mining, healthcare operational principles, basic medical terminology, health insurance billing, and certain healthcare-specific technologies.

According to ASHIM, “CHISP tells the hiring manager that a professional understands health IT and both the healthcare and IT industries.”



To sit for the CHISP exam, candidates must have at least three years of experience related to hardware, software, data, or clinical IT. Alternatively, less experienced individuals who take ASHIM’s professional training program, as well as those with a degree in computer science or Microsoft or Cisco certification, are eligible to take the CHISP exam.

Typical CHISP designees work as EHR implementation specialists, practice consultants, workflow analysts, network engineers, clinical software trainers, and help desk and application analysts.
