UK Council for Health Informatics Professions
Country of origin: UK
Click for Full Details: www.ukchip.orgThe UK Council for Health Informatics Professions was established following a growing consensus that there is a need to develop Health Informatics as an independent profession.
It is becoming clear that as informatics becomes a more and more important part of health care it is having greater and greater impact on patient care. There have been examples where poor health informatics has caused damage to patients. It is recognised that good informatics can improve patient care. These conflicting issues mean that there needs to be a means of ensuring that all of those concerned with heath informatics have appropriate qualifications and experience. Thus there is a need for a professional registration body.
It is also recognised that health informaticians are often undervalued, inappropriately managed and poorly paid. The establishment of good professional standards will help to improve this situation.
UKCHIP is a professional registration body for all those involved in health informatics.
