Q & A with Becky:
Q: With so many career options in the healthcare industry, why did you choose to focus on a career focused on data collection and clinical outcomes?
A: Honestly, I didn’t choose to focus on data collection and clinical outcomes – it chose me! But, looking back over my career, I know that each and every area that I worked in prepared me for it. And, it’s truly where I belong – using a structured process for chart review to abstract data that will directly impact and improve care algorithms and delivery to pediatric patients. It doesn’t get any better than that!
Q: What do you like most about your position as Registry Services Director?
A: I have the privilege of being able to work with an amazing management team supported by an even better executive team. And, our team of abstractors is so committed to quality work which allows us to focus on growing!
Q: What advice can you give others who may be considering a remote position outside of the clinical setting?
A: It is definitely different, so don’t work too much or too little in one day. Set daily goals for yourself … and ENJOY no commute, no work clothing wardrobe, not having to cook dinner when you get home, taking part in school field trips, a quick grocery store trip at lunch time, and YOUR FAMILY!
