As a new graduate, was employed by (then) Regional Hospital in Yakima Washington at their clinic that had several specialties. I was involved in several clinics: Internal medicine doing all gynecological exams, pain management and warfarin management. Orthopedic practice included pre-op and post-op management of patients, established patient care including injections and evaluations with referral to surgeon as needed. Orthopedic and Internal Medicine became integrated due to pain management. I researched all of Washington State WACs and developed a pain agreement form for patients who were on chronic use of opioid medications. Biggest success story: Set up and management of Warfarin Clinic with interacted with the Cardiac Care Center (two floors below) to facilitating physicians in helping their patients to successfully manage the patient’s INR testing and warfarin.

EMR: Genex, then Athena.
