Q & A with Samantha:
Q: How have you changed your work habits working in a remote environment?
A: Working in a remote environment can be challenging at times, but many of my work habits remained the same. I am a very organized and independent worker to begin with, which was a big help when starting with Registry Partners. It does take discipline, but I set specific hours each week for myself in advance, sticking to a pretty regular schedule. I only alter this schedule for special occasions, and it really keeps me on track. When working remotely, it is important to reach out with any questions and not be afraid to ask for help. We are a fantastic team at Registry Partners and we really value a teamwork culture here, even as a remote company.
Q: What advice can you give to others considering a remote position outside of the clinical setting?
A: Working for Registry Partners has been one of the best decisions I could have made for myself. The flexibility has been the perfect fit for my family and lifestyle. I think there is a place for everyone in healthcare, and whatever your reasoning may be for considering a remote position, you should not be scared to give it a try. I had many reasons for wanting to leave the hospital setting, but my biggest fear was that I would no longer make an impact in the lives of others if I left. This is simply not the case. I feel we make a major impact on the quality of healthcare everywhere, and it is amazing to truly feel a part of that on a daily basis.
Q: Why do you believe the healthcare quality field is so important? A: I believe the healthcare quality field is extremely important for many reasons. There are so many new and innovative things happening in healthcare all of the time. Many of these changes and advancements come from quality analysis of data, documented by those administering the care directly. When a quality division analyzes this data, they are looking for trends, ideas, issues and more to improve healthcare for patients everywhere. Like anything, there is always room for improvement, and the healthcare quality field plays a vital role in ensuring improvement of patient care everywhere.
