The first annual Canadian Health Informatics Awards Gala, held in Toronto on November 24, 2005, celebrated excellence and achievement in the Canadian healthcare informatics community and honoured outstanding individuals, teams and companies. The Gala, co-hosted by Canada’s Health Informatics Association (COACH) and the Canadian Healthcare Information Technology Trade Association (CHITTA) was attended by over 225 healthcare informatics professionals.

Lynn Nagle, RN PhD, Consultant, Nagle & Associates Inc., Senior Nursing Advisor to Canada Health Infoway, Professor at the Faculty of Nursing, University of Toronto, and our Immediate Past President of the Canadian Nursing Informatics Association won the Leadership in the Field of Health Informatics Award.

Dr. Lynn Nagle recently established her own consulting practice under Nagle & Associates Inc. She is currently providing consulting on issues and initiatives related to nursing and health informatics. Her work as a clinician, educator, researcher and administrator has provided her with a broad-based perspective of healthcare delivery and information needs.
