TORONTO – HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society), a leading global non-profit organization dedicated to improving healthcare, has named Heather Sulkers (pictured) one of the most influential women in health IT. Sulkers is senior director, enterprise project management office and clinical informatics at CAMH.
The HIMSS award comes on the heels of Heather Sulkers being recognized by Digital Health Canada, in December 2017, as among the top 10 Canadian women leaders in digital health.
Since joining CAMH three years ago, Heather has led a number of significant healthcare IT initiatives. Most recently, she helped the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) achieve a HIMSS Enterprise Davies Award and HIMSS EMRAM Stage 7 in June 2017.
A natural leader, Heather is known to motivate colleagues and for a collaborative leadership style that empowers her team to think creatively.
“I am honoured and humbled to receive this award, and also for the opportunity to represent CAMH and further showcase the transformational work that we continue to do – particularly pertaining to leveraging technology and data to help inform and improve patient care,” Sulkers said.
She will officially receive her award in February at the 2019 HIMSS Global Conference & Exhibition in Orlando, Fla.
