Team leadership
Achieving results through the power of teams

Healthcare is a team endeavour. While this has always been the case, the current system provides additional impetus for understanding and ultimately leading complex teams. Team attributes are multifactorial however, with each unique group requiring a unique leadership approach. Leaders must be responsive and dynamic.

The Canadian Health Information Management Lifecycle

(Cette information ne sont pas disponibles en français.)

A much needed resource for those with a responsibility for managing Health Information.

This resource will provide a framework to help answer the following questions:
  • What is the legal health record in a hybrid or electronic environment? 
  • How is information protected, shared, and exchanged across jurisdictions?
  • How are data quality and data integrity maintained when data are collected from a number of different sources and devices? 
  • Who is the custodian of the health record in a shared environment?
And so much more…

Canadian Certified Healthcare Facility Manager

(Cette information ne sont pas disponibles en français.)

You have probably seen it all, major floods, blackouts, and loss of water, this list goes on. In order to deal with these disasters along with the everyday task of keeping a healthcare facility running, Healthcare Administrators must rely on the facilities management leadership to perform at a high level and be knowledgeable and competent in their field. One way to accomplish this is to develop an effective certification process that promotes a broad knowledge base and an on-going commitment to continuous learning.

In recognition of this idea, in September 2015, the Canadian Healthcare Engineering Society (CHES) launched the Canadian Certified Healthcare Facility Manager (CCHFM) Program for its members across Canada. The program is based on the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (a membership group of the American Hospital Association) Certified Healthcare Facility Manager program, a highly successful certification process for healthcare facility managers.
