Experience

Ohmny graduated from Lehigh University with a B.S. in Bioengineering in 2015 and a M.Eng. in Healthcare Systems Engineering in 2016. He was heavily involved with molecular research on the von Willebrand protein, a molecule determining the most common hereditary thrombosis abnormality. He became particularly interested in care delivery through a medical anthropology course at the end of his undergraduate work, which examined how medicine and care affected global societal outcomes. Ohmny volunteered at Lehigh Valley Hospital collecting information from inpatients about their care experience through an electronic survey.

During his master’s program, he held two internships: Lehigh Valley Hospital, where he analyzed improving care flow in multiple diagnostic care centers; and B. Braun Medical, where he applied a systems perspective to organize products in the sterilization department. As an adviser for a large Integrated Product Development course, he learned to lead teams through the product development process, from surgical tools to educational children’s toys, using a variety of physical and analytical solutions.

Why I Joined Carevive

My aunt is a cancer survivor who always pushed me to get involved in cancer research. As it became time to pick a career path, a simple clinical error helped me choose. One of my aunt’s physicians prescribed a medication one letter off from the intended drug. Luckily, my aunt had performed her own personal research and realized that the prescription was for a completely different diagnosis. Otherwise, she might not be here today.

My aunt is just one of too many people who experience preventable medical errors in care delivery, but one of few people to realize the error before it was too late. My education and experience prior to Carevive taught me to recognize and embrace technological, data-driven solutions to improving the patient care process. I was thrilled to learn how Carevive’s programs are empowering today’s patients.

As the great FDR once said, “The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.” There is no doubt that Carevive is leading the way in the future of oncology care. I am proud to begin my career developing such a powerful, innovative solution with the potential to save many lives, and with a team who is focused on that same goal.
