The NL chapter is one of eight chapters from across the country and is led by a dedicated, passionate team of health information professionals.
The Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) chapter committee consists of volunteers who each hold professional designation from the Canadian College of Health Information Management. Our expertise has been developed through experience working tertiary hospitals, regional referral centres, and community-based hospitals. Though our committee roster is not full, we bring well-rounded HIM perspectives including leadership, data integrity, privacy/confidentiality, electronic records management, and coding/analytics.
We are committed to growing both the chapter committee and health information industry in our province. We continue to seek interested volunteers to join us in creating new subcommittees that will focus on special projects and interests of the NL members, including more in-person education days. With a full committee, we will also be able to create guidelines and chapter-specific procedures for future committee members and the membership in our province. Please reach out to us if you have any ideas or suggestions for our chapter, as we hope to create a network of HIM professionals across the beautiful province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
