When it comes to health care in Canada, health information and quality of care are inextricably linked. Health information professionals transform data into valuable information that has a significant impact on the quality of health care that Canadians receive. Their work also influences operational decisions at health care institutions and informs policy and funding decisions being made across the country.
The Canadian Health Information Management Association and the Canadian College of Health Information Management, together the Organization, are on a mission to advance the health information profession and ensure quality health information along the continuum of care.
About the College
The Canadian College of Health Information Management is a national, not-for-profit corporation that sets the accreditation standards for educational institutions and certification standards for health information professionals in Canada.
The College, incorporated in 1972, protects the public interest by governing and regulating the professional practice of more than 4, 600 certified health information member registrants. In enhancing its status as a regulatory body, the College advances the professionalization of the health information industry and acknowledgement of its professionals as a key driver of policy, funding, and the care that Canadians receive.
CHIMA is the national professional association for the health information profession in Canada, representing over 5, 800 health information members from coast to coast to coast. It advocates for and monitors trends within the profession, creates networking opportunities, and facilitates continuing education for its members. CHIMA also connects members with employment opportunities at organizations within health care and beyond.
At this time, there are no career opportunities available. Please check back at a later date.
The Organization is pan-Canadian with staff, chapters, and board members from rural and urban landscapes. Recruitment is based on values—regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, or sexual orientation. For applicants with disabilities, accommodations will be made available in all aspects of the selection process.
We are proud of our commitment to lead a diverse group of individuals who bring different perspectives, experiences, and ideas to the health information profession.
