From Where I Stand

Senior Analyst, Transformational Services
My Work Today
Administrative data is currently scattered across the health system. It’s kept manually or squirreled away in various systems in non-standard formats. As a result, getting a provincial picture is an extremely manual and time consuming process.
AIMS will dramatically reduce the number of administrative systems that data is stored in. On top of that, it will be stored in a standardized format. Relevant information can then be gleaned from the data both quickly and accurately. This will ensure that decision makers have the information they need, when they need it.
About Ian D.
Ian was born and raised in Regina, but moved to Alberta for his post-secondary education. He met his wife Candace there, and they moved back to Regina upon completion of his schooling. “I spent the better part of a decade working in the agricultural industry, including grain, agricultural inputs and machinery, but then the opportunity came up to join the health system in 2016 as an analyst at 3sHealth. I have worked on the benefit realization side of the various initiatives that the organization has undertaken.”
Ian and Candace enjoy spending time introducing their young son Lincoln to new adventures, whether it’s sports, arts, culture or travelling to various destinations. Ian also embodies the word ‘handy’ in the term ‘handyman’ when it comes to home renovations. “I’ve gutted and rebuilt our basement, replaced the roof, landscaped the backyard and built a custom shed with a bit of a shop component to it.”
When he’s not working as an analyst, parenting or renovating, Ian finds time to train and compete in Track and Field sprinting. “I’m planning to compete at the Canadian Masters Indoor Championship in March 2019, with the goal of competing in the World Masters Outdoor Championship in 2020.”
Well done, Ian!
