https://www.linkedin.com/in/peteraconnor
I have spent my entire career tackling really difficult problems in all aspects of software development. I'm the guy that jumps in to solve the problems that no one else wants to tackle. To do this, I rely on the following principles:

- Nothing worthwhile is done by a single person. At the heart of any important project is a team. So when I see a product line with issues I always start by evaluating the team. I use four characteristics to rate the team: Talent, Focus, Trust and Passion. Any major problem a company is having usually leads back to a team that is weak in one or more of these areas. That is an obvious place to start.

- I don’t care who you, what title you have or how many people you have working for you, everyone has to be willing to do what it takes to get things done: Build a spreadsheet, review customer problem reports, order lunch. The best metric is forward progress. Once the boat is moving, it is much easier to steer.

- Many leaders and managers often forget that their job s is to make decisions. As a manager, you should either be making a decision or learning what you need to know to make a decision. Simply stated, you should never stop learning

Other specialties include:
- Expert at building and running large, successful, worldwide organizations with proven track record of delivering complex software products and solutions on-time and with high quality.
- Extensive experience in product launch and integration of acquisitions
- Has led all types of organizations, from large multinational development groups to small focused teams.

Physician, Functional Medicine and Nutrition at Self-employed
Career Advisor
Class Year of Child:2021
Occupation: Health Science
Dr. Cantor-Adkins received a B.A. in Biology from Brandeis University and an M.D. degree from Stanford University School of Medicine. She completed an internship in Internal Medicine at Pennsylvania Hospital, a residency program in anesthesiology at the University of Pennsylvania and a cardiac anesthesia fellowship at New York University. She then pursued a research fellowship in neuroscience at the University of California at San Diego. She was on the anesthesia faculty at NYU, UCSD, and the Medical College of Pennsylvania for a number of years, practicing cardiac anesthesiology. Stacey retired from anesthesiology in order to heal from a long bout of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. She recovered her health using a macrobiotic diet, corresponding lifestyle changes, and the principles of Functional Medicine. She then studied acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and homeopathy. She completed her education in functional medicine with the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), and is an IFM certified practitioner. Dr. Cantor-Adkins also received a M.S. degree in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport in 2016.

"My passion is being a detective of sorts to find out why people are chronically ill and not getting better, and then using diet, nutritional supplements, and lifestyle changes to move them back towards health and vitality and joy. It's the most rewarding thing for me. I love seeing the big picture, and making correlations between ancient and traditional healing wisdom and the genetic, biochemical, and metabolic knowledge we have now, and individualizing patient care. I am insistent on trying to find the root cause of disease and not simply suppressing symptoms, which inevitably leads to more problems. My goal is for people to feel healthy enough to live the big life they were meant to live, a life full of passion and meaning and purpose."

Medical Scribe at Scribe America
http://www.scribeamerica.com/
Class Year: 2017
Occupation: Human Services
The central role of the Medical Scribe is to relieve the physician of clerical or secretarial duties; thus allowing the physician to focus more directly on clinical care. The scribe is an unlicensed person and exclusively non-clinical. They do not touch patients and do not engage in any type of patient care. A scribe's role is limited to documentation and efficiency management for the physician.

The scribe observes the physician during patient encounters and performs documentation on the physician's behalf. Under the direction of the physician, they enter information into the patient's electronic or written chart. All documentation is reviewed and edited by the physician. It is signed with an attestation by the provider that the scribed chart accurately reflects all work, treatment, procedures, and medical decision making performed by them.

Scribes function as the physician's personal secretary and requires access to electronic databases that is similar to the access granted to the physicians themselves. Within the framework of an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system the scribe needs the functionality to find old records and results. At the physician's request, the scribe must be able to locate past medical records, prior lab/radiology results, or past visit histories for the physician to review. Additionally, within the EMR itself the scribe needs the ability to enter data into the chart on the physician's behalf. All scribe-entered data is reviewed and authenticated by the physician.
Recruiting Talent: Yes - Looking for part time or full time employees to work as medical scribes with us in the Albany-area.
