I am an Oracle Certified Application Developer and have completed numerous programming and professional development courses. My BA is from California State University, Northridge.

TransUnion Programmer who built the companys Encounter Management System (EMS) died suddenly. Familiar with program as a developer, mastered system to extend compatibility to five new health plans. Maintained timeline and met specific HMO, hospital and medical practice needs. Cut on-boarding time. Conversion programs to DDDs EMS had to be re-written / revised for new data files from each new healthcare provider. Recognized and leveraged data patterns to devise standard conversion programs, each handling several variations. Cut start-up time for new submitters by reducing custom conversion programs. Reduced processing time with custom A/R system. Maxicares antiquated Accounts Receivable system was a combination of two older technologies and required substantial manual processing. Rewrote the entire A/R system automating multiple processing tasks. Cut three full time positions as a result of time saved by new program. Facilitated faster data processing. TransUnions operations department data processors needed to scroll through hundreds of batches of data to find current files, increasing time and potential for errors. Migrated system to a new interface listing current files first. Saved dozens of keystrokes per file, improved ease of use and accuracy. Customized search programs. To respond to specific regulatory / board requests, health plans often requested additional information and data from DDDs EMS that was not included in their original scope of service. Facilitated good client relations by creating ad hoc programs to fetch specific medical system data to support research.
