Marx Gained a Competitive Advantage after Completing CD-ED’s Health Information Management Program

Marx was able to complete CD-ED’s Health Information Management program online and quickly find a rewarding career

Marx was Successful in Earning His CHIM Certification and Obtaining Employment Quickly after Graduating CD-ED

Meet CD-ED Alum, Marx Louie De La Rosa, Health Information Management Graduate. This is his story from picking the program to securing a job in the field.

“CD-ED presented an opportunity for me to earn my Health Information Management (HIM) Diploma online at my own pace. This allowed me to integrate my studies into my work, social and family life effectively. In addition, CD-ED’s positive track record in HIM online education that is fully accredited by the Canadian Health Information Management Association (CHIMA) made me confident that I would be receiving quality education.

Online learning entails a great amount of discipline and commitment that is why I laud my instructors for closely monitoring my progress and for providing me with all the possible guidance that they can give. Not only were they subject-matter experts but they were also counsellors and motivators. Some of them have become my career mentors up to this day.

I currently work as a Health Information Management Practitioner at Saskatchewan Health Authority.
I perform a variety of responsibilities from Release of Information to Quality Assurance, Coding and Abstracting of Charts, Records Management, and other administrative functions.

This career entails a high degree of analytical and critical thinking, time management, and attention to detail. These skills are not only taught in school but are also honed through the process of online learning.

After acquiring my diploma, CD-ED did not stop there. I was provided with the tools to successfully challenge the CHIM National Certification Exam. Career Services then took over to assist me in my job hunt – from carefully developing my resume to identifying positions that I am qualified to apply and how to ace job interviews. This gave me a competitive advantage. In less than a month after acquiring my Certified Health Information Management (CHIM) credential, I received my job offer. I can truly say that CD-ED was the right choice because they seek to see their students succeed! I am eternally grateful.”
