The British Council for Health Informatics Professions (CHIP), which aims to increase the status and skills of specialist NHS IT users, has been launched. CHIP is already on the verge of issuing a draft set of standards for the profession, and plans to have a voluntary register of health informaticians up and running by the end of September 2003. The agency's formation is being supported by the Association of ICT Professionals in the NHS, the British Computer Society, the NHS Information Authority, and the Institute for Health Informatics.
