(Jan, 5, 2018) — The American Board of Imaging Informatics (ABII) welcomes input from imaging informatics professionals to review the proposed Test Content Outline (TCO) for its Certified Imaging Informatics Professionals (CIIP) test. You need not be certified through ABII, but need to be working in the profession.

The TCO identifies areas to cover in the test, and weights them according to importance. The content specifications only include topics that link directly to one or more activities from tasks performed by imaging informatics professionals.

In March 2017, an online survey of possible tasks was created by the ABII Practice Analysis Advisory Committee (composed of subject matter experts from throughout the nation) and made available to imaging informatics professionals for comment.

In November 2017, the committee reviewed the practice analysis comments and proposed changes to the TCO. The committee will review the comments for possible changes and submit the TCO to the ABII Board of Trustees. The revised TCO has a scheduled implementation date of March 1, 2019.

A link to the proposed TCO is below. You’re invited to review the TCO and provide feedback via an online survey (live until March 15, 2018). The survey is the official method by which we track feedback. Your comments will be reviewed to possibly make changes to these documents.
