THE ESSENCE OF WHAT I DID

I implemented SCM in Merck’s medical writing department and created a library development curriculum to make clinical documentation more efficient. (2018)


THE PROJECT BACKGROUND

Medical Writing and Content Standards, Merck & Co.

Structured content management is a documentation system that works by extracting chunks (content libraries) of similar information across documents, storing them in a database, and using them in future documents.  The chunks are pre-written and pre-approved to promote medical writing efficiency and regulatory compliance among clinical documents.

I worked both independently and on a team to implement SCM within the medical writing department. I created content libraries for drug protocols and a curriculum for library development to be used globally by pharmaceutical companies.  I was even able to present my work at the Merck Technology Symposium in 2018.

On the side, I worked on reviewing clinical documentation, documenting international regulations, and schema systems.
