“SickKids was the first organization to pilot the CHIMA Annual Team Learning Subscription in 2019. Since then, we have been able to support our health information professionals with their continuing education. Our team members are able to have interesting discussions throughout the year as new content is released. I look forward to the expansion of this subscription service and encourage other organizations to consider it as an option for the professional development of their employees.”Sandro Serino,
Director, Enterprise Information Management, The Hospital for Sick Children
Build an annual team learning subscription for your organization
By creating a scaling cost model, we are able to help small to large organizations better afford
continuing education for their employees.
|Package||Number of employees*||Organization license fee||Employee subscription fee|
Calculating your package
An organization pays CHIMA for both the licence fee and employee subscription fees. Each organization can determine afterwards if they’d like to deduct the employee portion from payroll or absorb the cost as a benefit to their staff.
Example cost for a team of 6 employees:
organization license fee
6 x $59 employee subscription fee
Total ATLS cost
Frequently asked questions
Absolutely! Please fill out the contact form on this page and a CHIMA team member will be in touch to book an appointment.
An organization pays an annual fee* that supports the regeneration of content into the ATLS. The organization fee is based on a scaling-cost model to help small to large organizations better afford continuing education for their employees.
Once you’ve determined the size of your team, a $59 annual fee* per subscriber is incorporated.
*Plus applicable taxes
Each team subscriber will need to individually sign into their account to access the ATLS collection. It is through here they can complete each offering in order to track the progress of their own professional development. For subscribers who are CHIMA professional members, it is especially important for tracking their continuing professional education credits with the Canadian College of Health Information Management.
We encourage employers to have deeper discussions on the key takeaways their employees have gained through their learning.
You will be able to see when subscribers have last logged in to their account with CHIMA.
They will need to sign in to their CHIMA account and click on their name in the top-right corner to access their dashboard. A ‘My annual team learning subscription’ card will appear. By clicking to explore, they will see their ATLS collection and can individually add items to their cart to gain access.
The person responsible for the payment of an ATLS is considered the owner of their organization’s team. The owner will be able to invite team subscribers by sharing a join link or by adding in email addresses directly. There is an option to assign managers to assist with subscription management.
Yes. A CHIMA administrator will be able to assist you with this.
The person who purchased the subscription and assigned managers can adjust who gets the number of seats an organization has purchased. That’s done through their dashboard.
They will no longer have access to the ATLS collection of products for $0.
This depends on the product. We suggest going through the dashboard to access the ATLS collection for items that will be $0. If the item is not included in the ATLS collection, then a person will pay either the public price or preferred pricing associated with being a CHIMA member (e.g., student, affiliate, professional or retired).
A CHIMA Annual Team Learning Subscription gives you access to over 100 offerings for your team to learn from (e.g., HIP Week 2021, a 5-part leadership series, professional practice briefs, etc.).
A corporate pass is offered for individual products for groups of 5+ more staff (e.g., HIP Week 2021 exclusively).
