Discussion: The AMIA Certification


Week 3 discussion DQ 1 Take a position on whether the ANCC or the AMIA certification is better in healthcare informatics. What led you to that determination? DQ 2 Choose a change management theory and describe how you would apply it to the implementation of a new healthcare technology in your area/speciality of nursing.

Health Informatics professionals lead the development, implementation, management and evaluation of information and communication systems designed to improve clinical and public health processes and outcomes, enhance patient and health professional interactions with the health system, and strengthen the ability of communities and individuals to manage their health. Health informatics professionals include individuals who come to informatics through a range of pathways including, but not limited to, dentistry, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health, health informatics, and computer science training.
AMIA is establishing certification for health informatics professionals who practice or seek to practice at an advanced level.  This certification  is being developed for the full spectrum of applied health informatics professionals who are not eligible for the Clinical Informatics Subspecialty.
In November 2019, AMIA established the Health Informatics Certification Commission to finalize plans for and oversee the AMIA Health Informatics Certification (AHIC).  The 14 member Commission will be responsible for eligibility, examination development, and recertification requirements.  Commission members represent different primary health domains, practice settings, and career stages.
The Certification Commission will announce details about AHIC in 2020.
