It’s my Epic Willow Application Analyst Job Day Two! What…? Day Two…? What happened to Day One?
It was hectic, it was busy, it was overwhelming, but at the end of the Day One, I knew I would love this job.
As with almost all new jobs, there was a lot of housekeeping to be done on Day One – photo ID, setting up workstation, getting login credentials, meeting other team members and lots of new people I am sure to forget because I couldn’t retain the information overload, etc.
All the usual stuff…
But getting to the crux of it. I’m already preparing for the classroom training for my module. It turns out that I will actually be getting certified in Willow Ambulatory (WAM), Willow Inpatient (WIN), and also Willow Inventory.
I’ll be heading out to Wisconsin in a couple of weeks followed by a couple of remote webinar sessions. The target date to get my certification is early March and even though I’ll have a couple of chances to pass the certification exam I really am striving to pass it on my first try.
That’s the reason I’m already studying, and by studying I don’t mean making a leisurely perusal of some study materials… No, I’m digging in full throttle and have already laid out a study schedule and plan for myself.
That said, if you don’t hear from me on a daily basis as originally planned, you’ll know why… Please bear with me. It really is my intention to document this experience in real time so you can get a feel for what is involved.

So today, I did more studying and attended some Go-Live planning meetings.
I didn’t fully understand everything but it was good to hear the discussions because I know things will gradually start to fall in place as time goes by.
We even got to go to a couple of the sites we’ll be launching in and give them a sneak peek into what they can expect from the new system… Some people were hard to read but overall I felt like they were excited about the changes and are looking forward to having it in place.
Okay, gotta get back to the books now… 🙂
