Canadian Health Information Management Association (CHIMA)
CEO & Registrar
You are a healthcare change manager with an entrepreneurial predisposition.
You have earned a reputation for strong personal leadership, great communication skills, and a wealth of change management experience. You can roll up your sleeves and work shoulder to shoulder with your staff then roll them back down to work with world leaders in health information management. With strong listening skills, confidence, and an ability to build rapport with diplomacy you can lead an organization into the future that is already the vanguard worldwide in healthcare information management.
This role has leadership of both of CHIMA’s mandates: to lead and advance the association as spokesperson and advocate; and also to lead the college’s curriculum, certification process, and continuing education opportunities. And much more awaits.
Ideally, you already understand CHIMA’s place in the Canadian healthcare system, perhaps are HIM certified, and have experience in acute healthcare. However, you must be able to demonstrate that you can create partnerships externally using out-of-the-box thinking and diplomacy, in addition to relationships internally with empathy and a coaching mindset.
The role is to implement the strategic plan and concentrate on the four areas of focus that it has adopted: 1) Strengthen CHIMA’s chapters, 2) Establish collaborative strategic partnerships, 3) Provide innovative health information education and credentialing in HIM and 4) Demonstrate the value of CHIMA memberships.
Health information management is on the edge of a rapid transformation in technology, digitization, mobile access, and personalization and CHIMA is at the forefront of this revolution. Representing over 5000 Canadian HIM professionals, CHIMA is a change leader in Canada and around the world supporting advocacy, collaboration, and life-long education opportunities. As Canada’s practice standards and certification leader for health information management, CHIMA plays a vital role in the evolving healthcare of all Canadians.
