If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time, then you know that I currently work in College Health at my local University. I started this job about 3 years ago and it has been a great learning experience for me in learning about EMR and healthcare IT.

When I started the job 3 years ago, I took advantage of working at the University and started classes for my Masters in Information Systems. Happily I completed my Masters a few weeks ago. With the completion of my Masters degree, I’ve decided to start looking around for other job opportunities. I already have a few leads, but I thought I’d post my availability to my blog in case any of my readers have potential job openings.

To be completely honest, I’m really jack of all trades when it comes to technology. I’ve done everything from server and database administration to workstation rollouts. I enjoy optimizing processes and analyzing how to revamp a process using technology. I don’t want to be a programmer and will probably avoid doing any hard core system or database administration, but those things are fine as a small part of my job. I much prefer working in a strategic position where I can plan and organize in a way that the company is well positioned for the future.

If anyone has some potential job openings in the EMR or Healthcare IT field, then I’d love to hear about the opportunity and I’ll have my resume handy. You can either leave me a comment or send me an email at john [at] emrandhipaa {.} com
