Brief summary of your nursing background
Her early career consisted of working a variety of clinical positions from med-surg oncology to surgical and trauma critical care. It was while working in the Trauma Resuscitation Unit (TRU) at the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center at the University of Maryland that she saw the potential of information technology’s impact on patient care. In the TRU clinicians used a home-grown laboratory resulting system. In this system the screen could only show access to limited results, either hematology or chemistry but not both together on the same screen. Apparently, the developers did not see the need for a cumulative lab view and did not solicit clinical input.
