years my interests and experiences have been information technology,
healthcare policy, medicine in general, and pathology in particular.
it all, my passion has been writing. I enjoy assimilating, formulating,
clarifying and refining ideas,
condensing them, then communicating them clearly.
That passion led me to where I am today: a professional freelancer
helping others write about
healthcare information technology.
I have consulted in the HIT industry, on Epic EMR installations,
including projects at Kaiser Permanente (HealthConnect) and Stanford
University Hospital and Clinics.
In 2005 I did a two-year post-doctoral fellowship in Health Informatics
funded by the National Library of Medicine.
Before training in informatics, I completed a residency in anatomic
pathology & laboratory medicine at Washington University in St.
Louis. I have practiced as a board-certified pathologist in both
private and academic settings.
My special interests include
- Pathology and Laboratory
- HITECH Act Meaningful Use
- Electronic Health/Medical
Records, particularly Clinical Documentation and Computerized Provider
