    I apply a solutions based approach to solving complex puzzles, and achieving successful systems improvement. I have a natural talent for "out of the box" creative strategies that solve complex puzzles. I love looking at systems and finding ways to improve them, and I also love using my conflict management skills, analytical abilities, critical thinking capabilities, and interpersonal skills to cultivate cross-cultural relationships. Today, this combination is more important than ever. The world is becoming smaller and smaller and people need to be able to reach across cultural divides to solve complex issues that affect the world we live in. Nowhere is this more true than in the healthcare arena. I am currently using my extensive experience as "problem solver extraordinaire" with the Laboratory Informatics Institute where I evaluate and develop training programs for apps in the SciCloud. I work hard to define requirements, plan implementations, and provide superior on going support/training so that you don't have to. I specialize in EHR, LIMS, LIS, HIS, and HL7 apps to name a few. I also specialize in things like regulatory compliance and auditing. I am a one stop solution shop for all your HIT problems. I have spent many years learning, practicing, and finally honing this unique skills set and now I am ready to solve your puzzle. You have a puzzle and I have a solution!

    Medicine have a very wide area of complexity, therefore lifelong learning is the responsibility of the medical professions in particular. Learning can be achieved by many way, for example reading medical textbooks and medical journals for updating our knowledge, or doing a research that will make us read more, write more and analyze more. I had done my research in medical field as a mandatory requirement to complete my study, in addition to medical school program, to get my first degree for continuing through my final year, the clinical clerkship. My main competency lies in literature searching, literature review, medical statistics. For example, literature searching like medical journals or textbooks are not only necessary for a specific time, like when doing a research, but it is the necessity for almost all the time as long as we are in medical field. I am looking forward to having opportunities to help my fellow friends, seniors, and teachers whom in medical professions.
