Title: Manager of Engineering

Rev: 1.01

What We Do

HealthIM is a Canadian leader in mental health initiatives and provides software to support police interactions with individuals with serious mental disorders. Police are often the first responders to situations involving a mental health crisis. HealthIM is used by officers to gather their first-hand observations and determine what action is necessary to help an individual the most. These observations are transmitted to local hospitals to help bridge the communication gap between police and healthcare, simplifying the transfer process. HealthIM has been adopted by police agencies in Ontario and the prairies and is currently expanding across Canada. You can find out more at https://www.healthim.com.
