    201. Just a Few Go-Live Strategies
    Intended Audience: Currently practicing informaticists and newcomers to the field

    Go-lives are always challenging and you always come out of it with lessons learned. Today, I share some of my own experiences with what has worked for go-lives I've been part of. Some topics I mention are:


    Centralizing education in an easily retrievable location
    Creating a clear structure/flow for endusers to call in or log issues
    Providing clear expectations on issue resolution
    Being transparent and clear on communication
    Having internal team huddles on a daily or weekly basis

    200. The Difficult Reality of Pharmacy Informatics

    200. The Difficult Reality of Pharmacy Informatics

    200. The Difficult Reality of Pharmacy Informatics
    Intended Audience: Everyone

    💻❓Pharmacy Informatics.... are you sure this is the lifestyle you want?❓💻

    One of the major misconceptions about pharmacy informatics is that it's an easy field to get into and the job itself is not as stressful as traditional roles in pharmacy. This is not true. The difficult reality is that roles in pharmacy informatics are fewer than traditional roles and there may be more responsibilities that expected.

    On today's episode, we talk about how:

    💡 Pharmacy informatics is a niche field.
    💡 You need the right motivation.
    💡 You need to master the art of time management.
    💡 You can't just jump into pharmacy informatics without experience.
    💡 You need to adapt quickly and often.
    💡 If you are truly passionate about pharmacy informatics, you need to HUSTLE

    Transcript for this episode can be found as a blog post at the Pharmacy Informatics Academy: https://pharmacyinformaticsacademy.com/2020/06/17/the-difficult-reality-of-pharmacy-informatics/
