10 years ago, my capacity was dropping below what was asked of me while growing an aviation industry SAAS company. A failed GP visit was the turning point (the govt guidelines and I had different objectives), where I found I needed to take more responsibility for myself. Since then, I've turned over a new leaf & transitioned from going backwards to exploring how much more capacity I can have.
So far so good, but what's a software engineer doing in a functional medical practice?
The medical and aviation industries are both customer facing with high regulatory, commercial risk, automation & privacy requirements. However aviation in the last 20 years has driven down cost while increasing customer-service, safety and outcomes. With health by contrast, it appears costs are through the roof, the population is growing sicker and few doctors, nurses or clients are happy about the situation. My role then is to assist my medically trained colleagues to provide better alternatives for our clients, using cross-industry methodologies and tool-kits.
