So what do I do for a living? I went to technical school and graduated in 2010 as a licensed combined lab and x-ray technologist. What I do on a day to day basis is provide doctors with medical lab reports on patients when they order blood work as well as perform diagnostic images for radiologists when doctors order x-rays on their patients. To my surprise this field of work can be as lucrative as you want it to be. In January of 2013 I managed to double my income (where I worked before I was grossing ~60k/per year) when I chose to move to a more isolated location in Northern Alberta to work in several of the hospitals in the surrounding area. As great as it was, I was in for a rude awakening when I realized that after my 4 years of working and grossing around $308k in income I only had a little under $20k in cash to show for it. At this point I realized I needed to learn how to invest my money, so I picked up the book called, “” by Derek Foster, and it lead me onto the path of dividend growth investing. From the moment I started learning about dividend growth investing and the power of compound interest I became obsessed with the idea of extremely early retirement and began paving my path to financial freedom.
Under a new rule issued last week by the Department of Health and Human Services, patients will have the right to access their medical lab reports directly from the lab that performed the testing, without having to go through the physician who ordered the test.
Medical Laboratory Report Forms
The basic idea of the theorem can be illustrated with simple thought experiments. (7) Just imagine trying to order a meal in a new restaurant without using a menu, or assemble a piece of furniture without an instruction pamphlet, or diagnose diabetes without a blood-sugar lab report. Of course, you could probably muddle your way through any number of situations with roughly the same basic set of skills that was available to our preliterate ancestors, but the unassailable fact of the matter is that maps, menus, x-ray images, and medical lab reports are potent performance enhancers and without them we risk getting lost, going hungry, or medically misdiagnosing.
