As part of the implementation team for the Epic - Health Connect (an electronic base record keeping system) as a Project Manager, I was given an opportunity to become a lead in various departments throughout Northern California.
Having the opportunity to work with healthcare professionals (medical staff, doctors, nurses, and management) improved my skill-set in several areas.
I learned the importance of delegating, facilitating an implementation process using strategic planning, and data management.
Each department had different requirements and expectations, and conducting training sessions for each of them required a creative, yet effective approach, while providing valuable information for all to understand.
This implementation was a learning experience for all levels involved; which created a few hiccups in the process, but it is expected with any pilot type advances on this scale.
