Certification Qualifies Expertise in Health Care IT Systems1 | 2 |
The CPHIMS exam is administered at AMP Assessment Centers throughout the world. A list of centers is available at www.himss.org/getcertified. The exam is administered by appointment only Monday through Saturday on a first-come, first-serve basis. In addition, organizations, health care facilities and other groups may schedule a special on-site, group administration of the exam.
The CPHIMS Certification is governed by the CPHIMS Technical Committee, a HIMSS committee of individuals with subject matter expertise in the content tested on the examination. This committee is responsible for assuring certification meets the high standards required for the profession and is charged with setting general standards for the program, developing examination specifications, constructing new editions of the examination and establishing passing standards.
