Maintaining your CPHIMS-CA certification

Credential holders maintain their CPHIMS-CA certification through the HIMSS portal where printable certificates are available upon logging in and hours are submitted for renewal.

You worked hard to become a Certified Professional in Healthcare Information and Management Systems-Canada; keep your credential current with ongoing professional engagement. Certified professionals need to accumulate a total of 60 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) before their credential expiration date. If you allow your credential to expire without accumulating the required CEUs, you must write and successfully pass the CPHIMS and CA exams again in order to be re-certified. Click here for a guide to the renewal steps. Click here for a list of CEU categories.

* Beginning with recertification applications submitted on 1/1/2020, all certificants will be required to have a minimum of two (2) hours of continuing education that is related to ethics or conflicts of interest. Please refer to the renewal steps document for additional requirement information.
