Heidi WatsonOccupational Therapist
OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST REGINA
It is my goal to create a strong network of allied health professionals across Canada. To create a safe place where we can learn and support each other. I also want to help build a strong, efficient, two-tier health system where communities are not lacking in services and that people do not ‘fall between the cracks’.
I build solutions to problems that I see around me, and paperless automation is a core value to my life and business. Right now my current project is called the Canadian Electronic Health Information System. This is a practice management system that includes charting, community, address book, and resource store. With enough users, we plan to build an automated invoicing and bookkeeping system. With even more users mini accounts for clients and referral sources to communicate in a secure manner! (My life partner says I’m not allowed to build the next section without 100 users in the first section… what a spoil sport 😛 )
Knowledge sharing is also another core value that I aim for. Helping other allied health professionals feel comfortable and informed in starting their own private practices and training new Combined Decongestive Therapists are two of my courses. I also host ‘Two Tier Canada’ a podcast where I interview clinicians already in private practice and share their wisdom with you!
I love working with various types of clients. Some of my specialties and areas of practice are:
- Lymphedema Therapy
- and Hand Therapy.
