As the health care industry evolves, Certified Imaging Informatics Professionals (CIIPs) need to be aware of changes in patient care, technology, and quality requirements. That’s why ABII has created a new requirement for diplomates. At the end of every 10 years, you’ll need to complete recertification requirements. You may choose one of these four options to complete your 10-Year Requirements:
- PRACTICE: Complete a quality improvement project relevant to imaging informatics.
- EDUCATION: Mentor someone who isn’t a CIIP in imaging informatics, providing that person with mastery of the knowledge needed to pass the IIP certification exam.
- RESEARCH: Publish a research-based article relevant to imaging informatics in a peer-reviewed journal.
- EXAMINATION: Take and pass the ABII certification exam.
Learn more about each option. You’ll have to complete the 10-Year Requirements within one year. If you earned certification in 2007, your compliance period is the year after your 10th year (2017). For everyone else, the compliance period is the year immediately before the end of your 10th year of certification. For example, if you earned certification in 2008, you must complete the 10-Year Requirements in 2017; if you earned certification in 2009, you must complete the requirements in 2018, and so forth.
