My Internship Experience at Corewell Health

Major: Computer Science During my internship at Corewell Health, I have undertaken a variety of challenging and impactful projects that align with my role as a Revenue Cycle Intern, focusing on enhancing operational efficiencies and data management within the healthcare finance sector. 1. sFTP Management System Enhancement One of my major projects involved enhancing the sFTP management system to ensure secure and efficient data transfers across different platforms, including AutoMate, GoAnywhere, and MoveIT. My responsibilities included developing action plans for managing sFTP operations, which involves mapping file transfers, handling file abends, requesting new ftp job, and maintain job master files. This required rigorous data collection and auditing to ensure that all the jobs were accurately logged, and any issues were swiftly addressed. My role was pivotal in setting up verification processes to ensure data integrity across all systems, significantly reducing data discrepancies and improving the reliability of our financial reporting. 2. Advanced Analytics and Dashboard Creation In another significant project, I utilized Tableau to create scorecard dashboards that track vendor performance against predefined SLAs and Key Metrics. This involved designing interactive dashboards that allowed users to upload information and track metrics in real-time, providing our team with actionable insights to make data-driven decisions. The development of these dashboards required a deep understanding of data analytics, proficiency in Tableau, and medical terminologies. 3. SharePoint Site Development I also led the creation of the ýCorewell Health Revenue Rookiesý SharePoint site, a comprehensive resource hub designed to support current and future Revenue Cycle interns. This project involved managing the entire development process from conceptualization to launch, including content curation, layout design, and feature integration. The overall outcome was a group success. We were able to create a platform where all interns are posting up our experience, learnings, and any new thing we learned and this site would act as a medium for all the upcoming interns, fostering a supportive learning environment. 4. Professional Certificate Complementing my project work, I pursued and achieved several Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) certifications, including Certified Revenue Cycle Representative (CRCR), Certified Specialist Business Intelligence (CSBI), and Certified Healthcare Financial Professional (CHFP), HFMAýs flagship certification. These certifications have not only broadened my knowledge base but also directly contributed to my effectiveness in handling complex financial management tolls within the internship.

Legislative Aide

Major: Political Science In this memo, we'll delve into the nuances between the Cherry/Wilson package (Senate Bills 486-492) and the Mobile Home Industry package (House Bills 4886-4889), providing insights into their objectives, impacts, and key differences. The Cherry/Wilson package aims to address a range of issues, including housing affordability, infrastructure development, and environmental sustainability. Senate Bills 486-492 offer targeted solutions such as tax incentives for green housing initiatives, funding for infrastructure upgrades, and measures to expand affordable housing options. However, concerns have been raised regarding the allocation of resources and the potential impact on existing homeownership programs. House Bills 4886-4889 focus on regulatory reforms and financial assistance for the mobile home industry, aiming to improve standards, affordability, and consumer protections. These bills propose measures such as licensing requirements for mobile home park operators, grants for infrastructure improvements, and mechanisms to address rent stabilization. While the bills have garnered support from industry stakeholders, questions remain about their long-term effectiveness and implementation challenges. The Cherry/Wilson package offers comprehensive solutions to broader housing issues, potentially benefiting a wider range of constituents. However, its impact may be diluted by competing priorities and funding constraints. In contrast, the Mobile Home Industry package targets specific challenges within the mobile home sector, offering tailored solutions but potentially overlooking broader housing needs. In summary, the Cherry/Wilson package adopts a holistic approach to address housing challenges, while the Mobile Home Industry package focuses on targeted reforms within a specific sector. The former emphasizes broader policy objectives, whereas the latter prioritizes industry-specific concerns. Understanding these differences is crucial for informed decision-making and effective legislative. As policymakers, it's imperative to weigh the merits and implications of both bill packages carefully. By considering the diverse needs of constituents and stakeholders, we can craft policies that promote equitable access to safe, affordable housing while fostering economic growth and sustainability. Another task that I completed was drafting tributes for different organizations within the district of Representative.

Mission Design and Automation Co-op Experience

Major: Electrical Engineering I worked on two different projects throughout my Co-op experience that provided me with very different experiences. The first project I worked on I was able to be the sole controls engineer on the job and was able to see the project through from start to finish. This meant I was able to get the time in preliminary software's such as AutoCAD electrical working on the prints, to working on the PLC and debugging on the floor, to seeing the customer come in and be very pleased with their runoff. The second project I worked on was a much larger project where I had the pleasure to work alongside a handful of other controls engineers also on the same job. This variation in job size throughout the rotation was something I really enjoyed and am extremely glad I was able to receive.

Magna Co-op 1st roataion

Major: Mechanical Engineering At Magna, I performed a variety of tasks, these tasks usually included: taking measurements for mirrors and mirror components, building mirror subassemblies, measuring components to ensure everything was within tolerance, and cleaning mirrors. Aside from these more common tasks, I have participated in various small projects like performing gauge R&Rs on various tools we have at the plant, I have also utilized a thermal chamber to see if the mirrors color and bleach at acceptable speeds at extreme temperatures like 50 C or -30 C. I have also operated an Instron machine to perform some tests, like what the pull-off force for the wires is when connected to the solder of mirrors, another test I did was finding what force it takes to have a mirror pop off its mount, and if that force is within its target area.
