University of Utah Hospitals & Clinics, Agile Coach, Development Manager
November 2014 - June 2016, Salt Lake City, Utah, US
The University of Utah Health Care is an outstanding Academic Medical Research Center with a reputation for converting research into real-world solutions, implementing them, and providing leadership in the Medical community by contributing to the public body of knowledge.
This is an endeavor to 'productize' and 'commercialize' one of their successes - abstracting it to be compelling to all Care Communities. This Health Care Analytics project is an idea the resonates to everyone, and is deceptively simple, "ensuring that patient values guide all clinical decisions". Overseeing this project, I am able to contribute as leader, architect, database developer, product owner, and user experience designer - what a blast!!! I recruited a top-talent team which worked alongside internal subject matter experts and stakeholders.
