Today we continue our Q&A series with Josie Sabo, our Media Specialist. Fun fact about Josie - she recently won two eVideon values awards at the same time (the first double winner in eVideon history!) for Passion and Commitment to Customers. She makes sure all the media on our system is running smoothly and that patients have access to the right education for them at every step. Enjoy getting to know Josie!
1. What’s your role at eVideon, and what do you do on a day-to-day basis?
I'm a Media Specialist - I primarily manage all of our various video libraries as well as create our own in-house relaxation content. I also help partners with requests such as customizing patient menus or obtaining media rights to resources they would like to use with patients.
2. What is meaningful to you about your job?
I love being able to help clinical teams get the resources they need to help patients, as well as alleviate tasks so they can focus on providing quality care. In the same nerve, it’s very rewarding to know that our product and services help patients have a positive care experience and keep them both entertained and educated.
3. Where can you be found when you’re not in the office?
I usually can be found wandering down the scented candle aisle of any given home store.
4. What accomplishment are you most proud of?
Not really an accomplishment, but I attended a workshop at the George Eastman Museum in Rochester, NY, and had a surprise lecture with Steve Sasson, the patent owner/inventor of the digital camera. Steve was such a great guy and I learned so much from him in just the two days we were able to meet and speak with him.
5. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up? How has that changed or stayed the same?
In 5th grade, we took a career aptitude test and my top result was “Multi-Media Maker,” which confused everyone including me, my teacher, and my parents as nobody knew what that actually meant at the time as this field was just opening up. Many years later, the prophecy came true, but my parents continue to still not understand what I do every day.
6. Who would play you in a movie about your life?
7. Poetry fun! Write a haiku about healthcare and/or technology.
Can be scary to people
