Our Saskatchewan (SK) chapter, one of eight in total, is an integral part of the CHIMA community.
This chapter meets semi-annually for community meetings that all our members are welcome to attend. At these meetings, there are opportunities to network, brainstorm ideas, and volunteer for various working groups to help advance the health information profession.
Meet the facilitator
Laura Krawec, CHIM
Laura Krawec, CHIM, is a data integrity analyst based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, working with client registry software and most recently with a public-facing application for pandemic relief efforts. Before this, she worked at a personal care home and rehabilitation facility that provided opportunities to explore many facets of health information management, such as records management, privacy and release of information, statistics, registration, and bed management and utilization.
She has obtained multiple certificates in data analytics and describes herself as a curious person who enjoys learning about all aspects of the health care and digital community. Laura graduated from the health information management program at Red River College in 2008 and was successful in the national certification examination of the same year, earning a CHIM designation.
Since then, she’s enjoyed the growing community of health information professionals she’s encountered through various positions and volunteering. She volunteered with the former MBNU chapter committee for three years and is looking forward to working with CHIMA and members from Manitoba, Nunavut, and Saskatchewan as a community facilitator.
