    Rebecca Fein

    Health Informatics Consultant

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 1

    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!

    Data Mining and More

    United States - Last active: 09/04/2014 - Tests: 3

    Exceed your Expectations I began surprising people while in my teens, and decades later, that hasn't stopped. Whether my next surprise is rescuing a seemingly hopeless system, sending you 50$ refunds for every bug found in my software, turning an everyday report request into the discovery of a new cost-saving business process, herding cats (e.g. programmers) living around the world into becoming a world class team, or helping you learn what you didn't know you needed to learn, I can't yet say. But everyone likes unexpected gifts. I look forward to working with you. P.S. I am fluent in German. In French I have some reading knowledge and a *very* basic conversational ability (French is such a beautiful language, I look forward to having a pressing business need to rapidly become fluent). I used to be fairly fluent in Japanese; someday I hope to regain that as well.
