When my youngest daughter Annie was four years old, we were vacationing in Hawaii enjoying the beach and the quiet pace of life. One night as we were getting ready to go out for dinner, I asked Annie, “Where are your shoes?”  She innocently recalled that the last time she’d seen them was three or four days earlier. Isn’t that what vacation is all about? That moment has been an anchor for me for many years – a reminder to live in the now. It applies in my work life as well. Maybe you have a similar story.  Continue reading

My Vice President of Marketing quips that she sees herself as the connective tissue within the organization, citing that she needs to know a bit of everything to craft messages that fit like a glove. It’s a bit of crazy perspective, but when I think on it, she’s right. Continue reading

The word “grit” has been on my mind a lot lately. I recently rode my fifth “Death Ride,” a 129-mile cycling event in the California Alps. The course covers five mountain passes and boasts 15,000 plus feet of lung-busting climbing. Don’t ask me why I do this. The adrenaline, perhaps? Or maybe that incredible feeling of pushing myself and accomplishing my goal. Continue reading

Eyefinity EHR: Check

I made it!

Hello from the other side. I am happy to report that all is going great with our implementation of Eyefinity EHR. I was never really worried about it, but I did have first day jitters. The nervousness is really more of a mind game than anything else. It is funny how you are either excited to get started or nervous about the unknown. We always try to keep a positive perspective, as it changes the outcome and outlook of the day for the better. Continue reading

Easy Like Paper

Complicated and easy solution

by April Jasper, ODDr_Jasper_short

Do you remember the days of paper charts where we had a form which had all the normal findings on it? If a patient had all normal findings, we just circled all of them and saved ourselves boatloads of time! I think these forms are the primary reason doctors complain that EHR systems slow them down. What my team loves about Eyefinity EHR is that when all the findings are normal, we can select one button that marks the entire exam as normal and it auto populates. It feels a lot like the old days with paper. An EHR should make us more efficient, not less so; look for these features and follow this blog to read about them as I learn them with you.
