HISA and ACHI collaborate for members
The Health Informatics Society of Australia (HISA) and the Australasian College of Health Informatics (ACHI) have signed an agreement to offer combined membership of both groups to the health informatics community.
Fellows and members of ACHI will receive membership of HISA as part of the agreement, with HISA membership alone still offered to anyone with an interest in eHealth and health informatics.
Full-time students will be offered student membership of both organisations.
HISA chair Katerina Andronis said the four membership tiers were reflective of expertise and contributions to the field of health informatics and recognised professional achievements.
Ms Andronis encouraged HISA members to consider upgrading to one of the top two tiers, which includes membership of ACHI.
“It is important to note that constitutionally, both organisations will remain autonomous and that a review will occur in 12 months so that we can make any adjustments to operationalising this agreement if necessary,” she said.
