You’ve been in the ultrasound field for over 15 years! Why did you choose ultrasound and how did you get started?
“Ultrasound chose me. My background was in Computer Science, and I worked for five years as an Application Specialist. I knew I was interested in healthcare but was unsure of which direction to go. My journey began when I was fortunate enough to find a position at a hospital in the suburbs of Chicago. I had the opportunity to shadow a sonographer and from then on, I knew it was my calling!”
You’ve spent much of your career at Texas Children’s Hospital. Tell us about your journey there.
“I started at Texas Children’s as an MFM sonographer. The department was brand new, and as it grew, I was able to take on more responsibility. Because I was well-versed in technology, I would ask a lot of questions about our technical capabilities. That’s when I started to grow into the leader that I am today. I went from an MFM sonographer to the Assistant Director of the MFM department, managing eight clinical sites.”
You helped evaluate ultrasound reporting systems for the team at Texas Children’s, what was that process like?
“The system we were using wasn’t cutting it for how busy we were. The options were to upgrade the current system or go with something different. We decided to see what was out there and ask the sonographers and physicians what was most important for them. After assessing three different reporting systems, the demo from AS was everything we were looking for.”
What was it you were looking for in an ultrasound reporting system?
“It needed to be reliable and easy to use for sonographers and physicians. The physicians wanted to create high-quality, easy-to-read reports that looked great to referring physicians. The goal was also to eliminate documenting in multiple EMR systems. Overall, AS answered the wants and needs of the department.”
“It made a huge difference for us, and over the years I continued to be more impressed with the team at AS and establish wonderful relationships.”
Now you’re going to work closely with Texas Children’s here at AS Software! Tell us about your career transition.
“Texas Children’s was my home for 12 years, and I’m excited to continue working closely with Dr. Wesley Lee and the team. I see the opportunity to advocate both for them and for all of AS Software’s current and prospective customers — sharing best practices and incorporating feedback from into the product roadmap.”
“We’re at the point where patient care truly needs support. Clinicians need the best technology that helps them improve their workflows and deliver great patient care. I’m looking forward to tapping into the side of the clinicians to deliver the best product to them, giving them what they’re looking for and what’s important on a day-to-day basis.”
And now tell us some fun things about yourself, any hobbies?
“I have a huge family that I love spending time with. I also enjoy traveling, and in my spare time I enjoy sewing! It could be as simple as making a dress or changing the color of my curtains.”
Welcome, Nasrin! We can’t wait for all the great things to come with you here at AS Software.
