How did you start your journey as a healthcare consultant, and what made you change from a role you played as a research associate to a healthcare consultant at The Shams Group?
After graduation, I joined as an intern in a healthcare NGO which enhanced my understanding of the healthcare field and broadened my perspective on choosing a specialized area. I have started my work in different areas such as health education, health care problems research and development, health facility management, quality assurance, etc. This made me groomed in a way that I could opt for any expertise in health care consulting and project management.
What are the daily responsibilities of a healthcare consultant and how do you organize, plan, and prioritize your work?
My current responsibilities include but are not limited to finalizing specifications/requirements for a project, and planning, executing, and monitoring a project. My work is to prioritize and organize based on client priorities and requirements
How do you think Electronic Health Records (EHR) and other new technologies have improved public health and all Policies initiative?
EHR implementation is giving a new turn to the healthcare industry. Forming a repository and system for collecting /managing health care info. The health information gathered helps in analyzing the increasing health concern trend and provides ways to address the issue on a timely basis and take a preventive approach.
What challenges do you feel are notable when deploying a health care system?
Any system implementation comes up with its own unique challenges, which could range from technical to programmatic challenges. However, identifying risks and challenges well before time based on experience and current project situation can help to mitigate them well on time.
Share an experience when you applied new technology or information in your job. How did it help your company?
There are many instances when new technology is introduced due to project/client requirements. It is always advised to research the new technology in general and its use specific to your company. Through detailed research and planning, implementation becomes smooth and it aids in positive outcomes
Are there any resources/websites and certifications or skills that you can recommend for healthcare workers to stay up to date with the industry?
It depends on the field of work and interest. For managing health care projects, it is important to gain knowledge of project management concepts for which PMP is recommended. If you would like to work in quality assurance then six sigma would be best suited. However, my belief is that theory can only be useful when it is practically implemented.
On this note, we would like to thank Ms. Hina for taking out time for this session from her busy schedule. We grasped that digitization in the Healthcare industry is an essential need in this era in order to increase the efficiency and productivity of all operations.
