The CHIA Health Informatics Competencies Framework provides the context in which the questions for the exam have been developed. The competencies set the minimum requirements in terms of skills, knowledge, understandings and capabilities that will enable a candidate to perform in a professional environment.

The competencies serve to define what health informatics professionals know and do. This framework can also be used as a set of guidelines for recruiting purposes, definitions of career pathways, or the design of educational and training activities.

The development of this competency framework is expected to play a key role in raising the profile of health informaticians, contributing to a wider recognition of the profession, and defining more clearly the body of knowledge underpinning this discipline.
