Charles Daniels first degree was a Bachelor of Arts, specializing in Philosophy and History, from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida. Later, after working as a Medical Librarian at the 97th General Hospital in Frankfurt, Germany he earned a second Bachelor’s degree in Medical Record Administration at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, Georgia and started his career in Health Information management. He has worked at acute care hospitals and psychiatric hospitals; private, federal, and state owned. He completed a Masters in Library Science/ Health Informatics from the University of North Texas which enabled him to change his career path from administration to teaching. However, teaching has always been an important part of being a health information administrator.
As part of each of his jobs he has been involved in and responsible for teaching staff on topics that range from documentation standards, privacy laws, to the use of electronic medical records.
At Kerrville State Hospital he was part of the transition team that oversaw the transition to an electronic medical record at the hospital. Recently he completed a Certification program in teaching Health Information Technology from Midland College. The purpose of that course was to prepare to teach the use of an electronic medical record as part of the use of the same in a health care setting.
When not working in health information, Charles is a docent at the San Antonio Museum of Art and does research and reading about the German heritage in Texas history. He is working on a translation of a book written in 1846 giving advice to German immigrants to Texas. He also is the President of the San Antonio Jung Centre.
