"I responded to an ad in the @OttawaCitizen in October 1999 for a research analyst for the Registered #Nurses Database at @CIHI_ICIS.
My first day of work was #November 9, 1999. I still have the ad! It’ll be 19 years this autumn.
CIHI offers many opportunities for career growth and personal development. But most of all, I see the value in CIHI’s efforts to improve the quality and availability of health information.
Good data is the foundation of informed decision-making, whether at the bedside, within a region or in response to a pan-Canadian epidemic. Playing a small part in better decision-making has kept me at CIHI for almost 20 years.
Knowing that our data and information help shape health care policies and decisions — and not just at regional or provincial/territorial levels — is the most rewarding part of my work.
A neighbour of mine used CIHI’s online tools to find an appropriate long-term care facility for her mother. She has been delighted with the results. It is rewarding to see our data inform local decisions as well."

“I’ve been with #CIHI since 2003. Our work with #Cardiac Care quality indicators gives hospitals an opportunity to make things better within the hospital, as well as to learn from and collaborate with other hospitals. We receive feedback from #hospitals that they are using our reports to help in their #quality improvement efforts, and it’s very rewarding to hear that my work matters. I like working at @CIHI_ICIS because I feel proud to contribute to an organization that makes a #difference .”

“Je suis à l’#ICIS depuis 2003. Avec notre travail sur les indicateurs de la qualité des soins cardiaques, on peut apprendre à mieux faire les choses au sein d’un organisme, mais également à l’extérieur. Quand nous recevons des commentaires des hôpitaux et qu’ils nous disent qu’ils utilisent nos rapports pour les aider dans leurs efforts d’amélioration de la qualité, c’est très encourageant de voir que mon travail y est pour quelque chose. J’aime travailler à l’ICIS, parce que je suis fière de travailler pour un organisme qui fait avancer les choses.”

Congratulations, Gilles! Gilles Fortin is presented with an award for his 45 years of service by CEO David O’Toole. •
Gilles started his career with National Health and Welfare in 1973, but in 1995 joined @cihi_icis and continued his life’s work on health information. Gilles led Canada’s submission of health information to @the_OECD and when the OECD began to transform their system of health accounts, they regularly consulted with Gilles for his comments as it evolved. The system they are using today was developed in part from Gilles’ extensive input. •
His work has included interactions with the @WHO and Pan American Health Organization, and he has become recognized nationally and internationally as an expert on international comparative reporting of health information. Gilles was also the original author of the Drug Expenditure report and he later led the annual Medical Imaging Technology surveys and reports.
David thanked Gilles extensively not only for his years of service with CIHI but also for his contributions to the enterprise of Canadian health data.
“Although my educational background is in #political science, I developed strong SAS skills in my graduate work, as well as in my previous experience working for the County of Los Angeles. While at the County, I worked with a broad range of record-level data, including health data. My first assignment with #CIHI was analyzing #rehabilitation data with the National Rehabilitation Reporting System team. Part of my desire to move to #Canada was for its universal health care, which the U.S. doesn’t have. When I learned more of what CIHI is about and its mission, I wanted to be a part of it and help make improvements to the health care system for future generations. So, I gave up the #Hollywood life for better health care data! For the past 3 years, I have been working in a stakeholder capacity where I have more contact with clients, in terms of both providing data and holding educational #workshops and web courses/conferences. I am always fascinated with how our stakeholders use our #data in their work.” ~Farhad Mehrtash, Senior Analyst, Home and Continuing Care, @CIHI_ICIS

“During my Master of Public Health studies at Queen’s University, I heard a lot about CIHI and its work on health information in Canada. Having an interest in working with health data myself, I always wanted to work with CIHI in some capacity. After some contract work with the Public Health Agency of Canada, I secured an analyst role with the Rehabilitation and Mental Health team in 2015, and have been with CIHI since then! 😊 Along with my interest in health data, a big part of my motivation to work at CIHI has to do with applying this information to help improve health outcomes. I really enjoy the work–life balance CIHI offers, the amazing people I have had the pleasure of working with, and the variety of opportunities to improve my skill set and knowledge of health information in Canada. So far, I have learned about different areas of health reporting, including rehabilitation services and health workforce. In my new role, I hope to learn about home and continuing care reporting in Canada and to contribute to the ongoing work of improving access to home and continuing care for Canadians.”
It was a pleasure to have met the Price’s, founders of @gregswings, in honour of their son/brother who lost his life to cancer.
You can see their documentary, Falling Through the Cracks: Greg’s Story, tonight in #Vancouver . It will also be playing in #Ottawa on June 17.

I remember so clearly sticking my hand down my throat and vomiting.... my grandmother came in my room and found bags of vomit under my bed 🛏 😬 my surroundings became consumed with the filth within me.
I had lost so much weight, my hair was falling out, many persons laughed at me and called me crazy behind my back 😭. Truth is I was posses with the lies of the enemy. I didn’t know that I was Created in a PERFECT FLAWLESS image! Ladies and gentlemen whatever battle you are facing, whatever demon is plaguing your soul, determine NOW that the torment ends TODAY! You are more than a conquer and there is a life of peace for you when you refocus on Him! Love God Love Love Yourself & Love People! #FWM#CIHI#FearfullyAndWonderfullyMade#CreatedInHisImage#photographerMicahAmore
