Memoirs of an EMR Physician

Last February 2010 marks my first year as an EMR physician. Having been working in a hospital for almost a year, this was a whole new experience for me. But I embraced the opportunity to be working in this company whole heartedly. I could still recall my first day in the office, I felt like a new student on her first day of school. I did not really know what was in store for me. I was nervous but excited at the same time. 

I was told that I would be working on customizing templates for the clients. So I had to familiarize myself with the system, join trainings and practice creating templates based on the exams that was given to me. After almost 2 weeks of training, before I knew it I was given clients to handle on my own. I was told to interact with clients to discuss customizations that were needed for the templates, I was a bit apprehensive, but I knew that communicating with clients is important to be able to deliver and give them the quality service that they need. 

In time, I gained confidence in what I was doing. I would look forward to the forms that were being sent, and figure out a way how to make them into templates. I would admit that I love what I do in this company. I find great joy in being able to help clients make their practice run smoothly by creating templates that would help them in their medical practice. I understand the need for doctors to be able to document each patient visit accurately. Things were not always that easy though, we would encounter some issues every now and then, but we would always find a way to resolve the problem with the help of our colleagues.

A doctors goal is to serve others by providing health care to their patients, but as an EMR Physician, my goal is to make life easier for my clients by helping them with their templates and keeping them happy and satisfied with the services we provide. Looking back on the year that was, I could say that it was like a roller coaster ride, with the ups and downs and some twists and turns along the way. I learned so many things I would never learn outside of the company, I gained new friends, met interesting people with different culture and backgrounds and most of all, being in this company has helped me realize that there are no limits to what we can do, if only we put our hearts and mind into something.
