EpicCare Inpatient ClinDoc Specialist at Yale New Haven Health & Sacred Heart University Alumni
After graduating from the UConn School of Nursing in 2012, Aldo worked as a nurse at the Hospital of St. Raphael as a cardiac nurse. When she began her career, she learned a hybrid method of charting with both paper and the Quadramed EHR. Just 6 months into working, St. Raphael’s became a part of Yale New Haven Hospital and began their journey towards a fully electronic health record: Epic. After volunteering to be her unit’s super user, her interest in informatics grew, leading her to join, and eventually be the chair of, the YNHH Nursing Informatics Council. In 2018 she transitioned into her new position as nurse application specialist on YNHHS’ Epic ClinDoc team and shortly after completed her masters in healthcare informatics.

Graduate Student & Teaching Assistant at Northeastern University’s Health Informatics Program, NEHIMSS Volunteer
After earning my bachelor’s degree in Biology from Trinity College, I spent two years doing translational medical research at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. There, I became fascinated by the applications of scientific research and how discoveries got translated into medical practice and public health actions to improve healthcare. I decided to pursue a graduate degree in biomedical sciences to get more formal training in biomedical research. I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s graduate school where I earned my master’s degree. Shortly after, I decided to integrate my research background with informatics so that I could address more global and practical problems. I am currently a full-time student at Northeastern University’s Health Informatics program, scheduled to graduate in Aug 2022. After graduation, I would like to work as a data analyst delivering innovative data-driven insights to decision-makers in the healthcare industry.
