Elaine Huesing, Editor and Publisher
Healthcare Information Management & Communications Canada is published by HC&CC, Healthcare Computing & Communications Canada, Inc., a privately held corporation. The magazine has been serving the Canadian Healthcare Community since 1987.
The magazine publishes articles, three times a year, reflecting current issues which pertain to today’s volatile Healthcare environment. We are proud to be the official journal of Digital Health Canada, a relationship going back to the COACH days back in 1987. As well we are the Official Journal of ITAC Health – the Health division of ITAC (the Information Technology Association of Canada). We are also proud supporters of Digital Health Week in Canada.
The magazine is an active supporter of Canada’s Academic community and enjoys partnership arrangements with several Universities including the School of Health Information Science at the University of Victoria, Dalhousie University and NiHi. Our audience is reflective of the diversity of Canada’s Digital Health Industry. In context with the diversity of our audience, the content of the magazine tends to be colloquial as opposed to technical or academic in nature.
Due to the volatile nature of the industry, Healthcare Information Management & Communications Canada does not strictly follow a planned annual editorial schedule. Rather, the magazine attempts to keep pace with new developments and issues and act as a vehicle for delivering topical and timely in-depth information to its subscribers and readers.
Our editors and columnists are all practicing healthcare professionals. They all have direct and extensive experience in varied aspects of healthcare informatics at the practitioner level. This, we believe, adds significant credibility to the magazine’s contents.
