Access eMOLST with one click

Thanks to our work with Dr. Patricia Bomba and Compassion and Support and the End of Life, the Rochester RHIO has integrated eMOLST access right onto the RHIO portal. Distinguishable by its bright pulsar pink tab, this integration simplifies the login process for users who have both RHIO and eMOLST accounts. After an eMOLST account holder logs into the RHIO portal, they are only one click away from accessing eMOLST.

What is eMOLST? eMOLST stands for “Electronic Medical Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment.” eMOLST is a secure, web-based application, which allows enrolled users electronic completion of the current NYS DOH-5003 MOLST form. This form documents end-of-life medical orders based on a patient’s wishes after a medical consultation. eMOLST allows health care professionals to create, review, and complete the renewal process online, making the process more efficient for providers and care professionals.

To sign up for eMOLST access through the RHIO, download the eMOLST application. Or, for more information, contact our Deployment Team at (877) 865-RHIO (7446). Want to learn more about eMOLST? Go to the Compassion and Support and the End of Life website.

Job Title: SQL Server DBA (Database Administrator)

Years with RHIO: I have been with HealthVantics* since October 2015.

What do you love about your job? I love working as a DBA because I have the opportunity to administer and monitor a wide variety of database products. Moreover, our organization is an amazing company to work with because it is dedicated to providing valuable community and patient-oriented support. It has a lovely working environment with talented and hardworking IT professionals where all team members have a professional and friendly attitude.

Background: I earned a master’s degree in Molecular Biology from Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium. I also completed a Microsoft Certification in Database Administration and some trainings in Computer Science and Bioinformatics. I also worked as a SQL Server DBA for more than 6 years.

What do the next 5 years look like for you? In five years, I see myself in a lead DBA role addressing complex SQL server problems and utilizing innovative database admin technologies and database management strategies. I would like to advance my IT career and provide advanced technical support in order to help meet the goals and vision of the RHIO and HealthVantics. I would also like to do some knowledge sharing by giving short-term, team technical trainings for our hardworking and skillful team members.

Outside of work: I love reading, meeting new people and helping them. I enjoy meeting, advising, and encouraging students on their career. I like taking walks and listening to music.
