On October 2, 2020 the Canadian College of Health Information Management (College) introduced the Health Information Fundamentals Curricular Standards (fundamentals standards) and the Fundamentals Framework for Health Information Programs (framework).
Within this framework, accredited diploma programs will include a concentration that will offer a blend of technical training. This training will dive deeper into areas such as data quality (e.g., classification and coding) and clinical knowledge.
Accredited degree programs will offer a blend of theory and application-based training. This training will dive deeper into areas such as information governance and privacy.
The College is currently in consultation to further develop the standards for both the diploma and degree-level curricular standards.
For more information on becoming involved with the consultation process, contact the College.
