My dream job would be to create personalized hospital laboratory computer systems. I know what you are thinking, because most people I have told this to have said the same thing; “That sounds boring!”, but to me it is a Rubik’s cube type problem. Hospital computer systems have to worry about security, have to integrate many different jobs into one program, and have the entire program communicate. I have worked in the medical field for three years now and I have noticed that between the laboratory and medical staff there seems to be a one size fits all computer system or one tailored to one department. It seems that if the program is specific there are security issues or some departments get left out due to the programmer not being able to understand the health care aspect. If the program is too general vital information for the patient or procedure gets lost in the process. I want to make a computer system for individual hospitals that are secure and that meet the needs of each department. If I can accomplish this then doctors can provide better medical care, nurses can provide better bedside care, and laboratories can provide better results and patients will get better treatments. Essentially, I want to help save lives through technology.
