Nuclear and Healthcare Decision Making

Nuclear warfare operations was my data-driven decision making environment before the healthcare phase of my career. It was all about recognizing false positives, false negatives, real time surveillance, predictive analytics, risk assessment, pre-planned protocols to follow in various situations, and determining which of those protocols was best to mitigate the risk without making the situation worse, avoiding adverse events where the consequences were immeasurable... all of that conceptual framework overlaps precisely with healthcare decision making.

Below is a link to a news article and video about my past life in nuclear operations. I was the airborne command, control, communications, and intelligence (C3I) officer, as well as one of two members of the battle staff who were responsible for "turning keys" and launching all 1,000 intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) if the ground command and control systems and crews were destroyed and unable to fulfill this responsibility.
