Received a BS degree in computer science from Polytechnic University in 2002.
The job I was hired for is an Epic (EMR) Analyst. I will be providing systems and application support and training for Epic applications. My responsibilities will include design, installation, modification, upgrades, enhancement and support, training, and clinical informatics improvements.
Thoughts about MI Program
The thing I liked most about the MI program was learning about the hot topics in healthcare today, including topics such as data mining, the electronic medical record, and computerized physician order entry. I believe that program helped me to obtain the job that I got by enabling me to speak on new developments in healthcare, such as the electronic medical record, which is what I was hired to work on.
One class in particular that I found very useful was the Evaluation of Healthcare Information Systems class. Through this class I became familiar with the types of challenges and issues involved in implementing new systems in hospitals, and going from a paper-based system to an electronic system. I also learned about various tools that are used for evaluating hospital information systems.
