FEDIP is the Federation for Informatics Professionals in Health and Social Care, a collaboration between the leading professional bodies in health and care informatics supporting the development of the informatics profession.
Conceived through discussions with BCS, CILIP, IHRIM, Socitm and UKCHIP, the federation brings individuals and organisations together to
establish professional standards in health informatics and maintain a public
register of experienced practitioners – offering greater confidence to
employers, clients, colleagues, government and the wider society, both UK and overseas.
In 2016, UKCHIP formerly closed its register to allow for FEDIP to be established as the professional register for informaticians working in health and care.
The institutions licensed to award FEDIP offer their members registration at four levels – Practitioner, Senior Practitioner, Advanced Practitioner, Leading Practitioner – dependent on the competence, knowledge and experience of the applicant in the field of health informatics.
