Wow, I can’t believe how time passes so quickly and you don’t realize that you haven’t blogged. Life is extra busy for me right now. I’m also currently considering a job in Fayetteville, Arkansas. It looks like a pretty good job opportunity, but there are a lot of factors to consider. Not the least of which is how quickly they want me in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Well, I don’t know much about Fayetteville, but one interesting part of the job is that they may want me to do consulting work on the side to keep me busy. I guess they are a small company and so they think that the IT needs won’t necessarily fill all of my time. In order to fill my time they are considering having me do EMR consulting for doctor’s offices in Fayetteville. Granted, I don’t know any doctors in Fayetteville or in all of Arkansas for that matter.

That could be a pretty large problem doing EMR consulting with no one to consult. I imagine someone reading this blog is from Northern Arkansas. Any doctors interested in having a fine young consultant help them out?

We’ll see what happens. There are still a lot of things that have to fall into place before I’d be doing EMR consulting or living in Arkansas, but the wheels have been set in motion. Don’t worry, regardless of what happens I’ll be working on this EMR and HIPAA blog for as long as I can stand to talk about EMR. EMR is revolutionary, important and interesting, so I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon.
