Featured alumni

Catherine ClaiterCatherine Claiter, BSc (Health Information Science) '00, is influencing healthcare systems as Chief Information Officer (CIO) of the Vancouver Island Health Authority.

Catherine has quickly risen to national and international prominence in health information science. She's influencing the quality, productivity and sustainability of our health care system in the province and internationally.

As CIO, Catherine has influenced several national and provincial initiatives as healthcare gradually moves from paper to electronic files -- not bad for someone who'd never turned on a computer until arriving at UVic and didn't really like computer science courses!
