Welcome

PARCA's mission is to develop and provide certification for professionals who are engaged with the support, maintenance and day-to-day management of Healthcare Imaging and IT systems such as Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) and Electronic Medical Records (EMR).

Certification is provided at five different levels, i.e. as a Certified PACS Associate (CPAS), Certified PACS Interface Analyst (CPIA), Certified PACS System Analyst (CPSA), CPEMS (Certified Professional EMR Specialist), and CHEA (Certified Healthcare Enterprise Architect). In order to become certified, one has to meet all the certification requirements, and, as proof, pass the certification exams. In order to sign up for an exam, as well as receive a quarterly newsletter, membership of the association is required.

We have a Board of Directors of professionals from the academic field, imaging industry and health care providers which assist us with the definition of the certification requirements and examinations.

Contact us if you have any questions, comments, or are willing to participate in our association.
