Due to recent demand from the ever growing CHIME International membership, CHIME has created an international version of the popular CHIME Certified Healthcare CIO (CHCIO) program. This is the first certification program exclusively for CIOs and IT executives in the healthcare industry. A CHCIO demonstrates the commitment, knowledge and experience required to master the core skills inherent to successful healthcare CIOs and IT executives.
Distinguish yourself from your peers
Becoming a CHCIO makes it easy for you to distinguish yourself as a leader within the healthcare IT industry. The CHCIO program is the first healthcare industry credential developed for CIOs by CIOs.
Around the World
CHIME’s faculty of CIO thought leaders traveled to Australia, Singapore, India, the U.K and Ireland in 2017 to conduct customized CHIME Healthcare IT Leadership Academies and boot camps or present sessions with partner organizations.
An Exchange of Best Practices
The programs allowed CHIME leaders to share best practices and their experiences as prominent CIOs in the U.S.; but the events also offered an opportunity to learn novel solutions to healthcare IT challenges from their host CIOs that could benefit fellow members in the States.
A First for CHIME’s India Chapter
On Nov. 30 2017, the CHIME India Chapter hosted its first CHIME Leadership Academy in Mumbai, with faculty from CHIME providing educational sessions followed by panel discussions that included CHIME Foundation members.
Collaborating in U.K., Ireland
CHIME held several educational events in the U.K. and Ireland in 2017, collaborating with some of the countries’ most prominent health IT leaders. They include Rachel Dunscombe, CEO of NHS Digital Academy, and Will Smart, CIO of NHS England and the international representative on the CHIME Board.

HIMSS-CHIME International was established in November 2016 to provide professional development and executive-level content to health IT leaders across the globe.
The partnership between the two not-for-profit organisations, HIMSS and the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME), reflects a growing recognition that health IT leaders are seeking opportunities to grow their careers and are eager to share best practices as they strive to improve patient care.
HIMSS-CHIME International will offer highly-regarded, exclusive HIT executive boot camps; leadership academies and certifications. Professional credentials will include the CHIME Certified Healthcare CIO (CHCIO) and the HIMSS Certified Professional in Health Information Management Systems (CPHIMS).
The collaboration leverages in-person events, membership, communities and digital content distribution channels to bring health IT leaders together and propel the role of the health IT leader to a strategic partner in the C-suite. Read the press release here.

“In my experience as a healthcare technology executive, I’ve found immense value in having a trusted and established network of peers. It’s nearly impossible for a single CxO to have all the collective wisdom of every single leader in their region within themselves, especially if your organization has a presence across national boundaries. This experience and set of perspectives that a network of fellow leaders brings, therefore, is immeasurably helpful. In CHIME I’ve found such a global network. One that consists of many hundreds of world-class IT leaders. Furthermore, as an organization, CHIME does an incredible job of being a catalyst for ongoing learning and knowledge-sharing amongst its membership. From certifications to bootcamps to their semi-annual forums, CHIME’s commitment to sharpening the skill-sets of Healthcare IT leadership across the globe is unmatched. As an American executive who is now a CIO on the other side of the world, I consider CHIME and its resources to be one of my primary points of reference for best practices and always encourage my staff to get involved.”
