Examples of my work

As a management consultant, I am always looking to expand my network and occasionally looking for the next assignment. Both of these sometimes lead to requests to see samples of my work; this is the place to link to descriptions and samples.

Much of what I do is involves sensitive information and cannot be posted. Some examples can be disguised, are generic, or for clients who have changed their name or–through no fault of the work I have done for them–gone out of business. These are representative examples, not a complete body of work.

Electronic Medical Records: Blogs, Topics & Links
Late in 2009 I was asked to become a guest blogger on the Practice Fusion blog site: EHRBloggers. My first post was on December 3. Since that time I have posted 22 articles on that site and four additional articles on my own EMRnet site. The list is here for both sites with links by date and topic. Some examples are:
  • EHRs Meet Pharma’s Need for Post-Approval Research
  • EHRs Meet Pharma’s Need for Longitudinal Research
  • EHRs Support FDA Accelerated Approval
  • EHRs Meet Pharma’s Need for Better Risk Management
  • Expanding EHRs to Include OTC Med
