Hometown: Irvine, CA
I am interested in electronic health records, policy, finance, efficiency, and quality of patient care.
I am a Penn State integrated B.S./M.H.A. student. In addition, I am pursuing a minor in Economics and a minor in Labor Studies and Employment Relations.
This past summer I worked as an intern at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. I was a member of the Magnet edit and write team for the Magnet redesignation due at the end of July. I worked on a project to collect Children’s Hospital benchmark data in preparation for the opening of the new Children’s Hospital in October 2012. As a group of interns, we were assigned to collect data on the organization’s 56 practice sites regarding patient reminders, no-show utilization, and scheduling templates.
