We are excited to welcome Micah Scott to the eVideon team as a Partner Success Manager supporting our hospital and health system client partners! Micah is joining us from University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics where he was an IT Support Consultant – AV Support. Micah and his family currently reside just south of Iowa City but after 25 years they are packing up and heading south to Tampa, Fla.
We sat down with Micah to learn more about his background and hobbies, and, in true eVideon fashion… whether he favors coffee or tea!
Q. Tell us a little about yourself
Happy husband and father of two wonderful boys—a 4 year old and a 5 month old. I am optimistic and try to live every day to it’s fullest. Life is short, you’ve got to take advantage of everyday.
Q. You have a unique perspective having worked inside a hospital during a global pandemic, what is your biggest takeaway?
That’s a tough one. Honestly, my biggest takeaway was not to buy into all the fear that came along with the pandemic. To trust myself physically and mentally and to take the steps to protect myself. Hospital admins do their best but it’s impossible to account for the well-being or feelings of every employee. I really learned to evaluate things for myself as opposed to just follow the status quo, all while adhering to whatever rules rolled out over that time.
Q. What excites you about joining the eVideon team?
So much! The idea of being a part of a team that cannot only impact but improve the patient experience as well as the day to day experience of the clinicians is huge to me. I’m not a doctor or nurse, but I know for a fact that a technology like eVideon impacts patients on a large scale and improves the quality of their stay while in the hospital. I’ve seen it’s worth the last few years at Iowa. Knowing the value that eVideon can bring, it makes me happy to be a part of such a cool team and product.
Q. What can you be found doing when you’re not in the office?
Ha… most likely chasing around my four year old or taking care of my 5 month old! 😊 Besides that, if I get free time I’m usually golfing or fishing.
Q. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up? How has that changed or stayed the same?
I wanted to be a Disney animator. I was told at a young age by a guidance counselor (believe it or not) that “most artists die poor.” Then they encouraged me to do something else. Sad, but it did make me explore other interests like audio and pro sound which eventually morphed into an AV group under the IT umbrella when I moved back to Iowa and finally into interactive patient care systems.
Q. What’s your favorite food?
Surf and turf and a nice cab.
Q. Where is the one place you’d like to visit?
Disneyland or Disney World! My wife and I are huge Disney park fans. Besides that, Maine in the fall always looks so nice.
Q. Are you a coffee or tea drinker? Do you have a favorite place to enjoy a cup?
Coffee! My screened in back porch in the morning when it’s still cool outside. Always nice.
