New employment…

July 17th, 2010 by Scott Pettigrew

As of July 8, I left the employ of Cincinnati Childrens Hospital Medical Center, and began working at a local RHIO called HealthBridge. I’ve known about HealthBridge, as I worked with it almost daily for the past 2 years at CCHMC. However, I’m joining a new venture called the Tri-State Regional Extension Center.

The Tri-State REC will be helping doctors install Electronic Medical Record systems, as well as achieve “Meaningful Use” from ones that they have already installed. It’s a position in which I can make a large impact on the quality of healthcare in Cincinnati and the surrounding area!

Although I’m quite excited to join HealthBridge, I’m leaving a great team of folks behind at CCHMC. They all know why I left, and understand completely (I think!), but it still saddens me to have to leave good people.

One thing that I have to do before I go any further is to state that anything posted to this blog represents MY opinion only, and in no way reflects on the opinion of HealthBridge or the Tri-State Regional Extension Center.

There – that’s done.  Back to my infrequent blogging!

Curses! Foiled again! (Sam went on vacation…)

Had a bit of fun over the lunch hour on Friday.  We prepared my colleague’s cube for his arrival back from vacation.  He’s messed with all of our cubes during our respective vacations, so we wanted to get a bit of “gentle” revenge.

Will work for mortgage money…

‘A mess’ after Hollywood payroll firm implodes – Los Angeles Times

Wow! A mess, indeed!

I am one of those caught up in the Axium implosion. I’m not going to point any fingers, but rather say what a PAIN IN THE ASS it is to have this happen right after the holidays. Luckily, Evan’s health expenses are covered under the Medicaid Waiver program, but the rest of us? Not so much.

Here’s what I lost:

  1. Pay for days worked from December 26 – Jan 8 (this MIGHT be taken care of in the bankruptcy, but I’m not holding my breath).
  2. Health Insurance as of Jan 31
  3. My JOB…trying to come to terms with that one…

So, if anyone knows of any recruiters or jobs in the Cincinnati area, I’d be more than happy to talk…to ANYONE!

My resume can be located here.
