EMR Integration Engineering Intern (Spring 2018)

| Greater NYC Area

The EMR Integration team primarily focuses on products and services for OncoEMR, our web-based, oncology-specific electronic medical record (EMR) system used by over 1,300 oncology clinicians every day to diagnose, treat and manage patients battling cancer. The EMR Interface Engineers are the primary technical touchpoints for our cancer center partners who use our EMR. They work with customers to understand workflow requirements, develop HL7 interfaces, prototype reports, gather feedback and work with the broader Product Engineering team to identify and solve critical customer challenges. This is a 6-month internship opportunity.

As a Flatiron Interfaces Intern, you will:

  • Learn how to work with customers, vendors and internal teams during discovery phase for workflow requirements, and how interfaces would fit in
  • Assist with migrating legacy Oncology EMR interfaces to a new integration platform
  • Work on multiple projects concurrently, monitor the status of tasks and escalate issues when appropriate
  • Develop knowledge of healthcare industry integration standards (HL7, X12, NCPDP, etc) 
  • Develop presentations to communicate progress, share best practices and provide updates.

About you:

  • You are passionate about our mission to improve cancer care through data and technology
  • You have a demonstrated technical background (i.e. major in engineering, computer science, or have done programming/scripting on your own)
  • You are a quick learner and can easily learn integration standards and technologies
  • You have SQL experience or other query languages
  • You have strong analytical and technical skills
  • You are self-motivated, proactive and thrive in ambiguous situations
  • You are flexible and adapt well to complex challenges
  • You have strong project management, presentation, communication, and customer service skills

Bonus points:

Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The most exciting part of being in my company is solving a real problem at scale through serious collaboration. Oncologists, software engineers, statisticians, business folks, etc. all have to come to the table together, as equals, to figure this one out. And we are doing it.

Amy

Chief medical Officer

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

An engineer and oncologist work together over several weeks to build an algorithm from a naive prototype to a highly specialized and flexible rule set that can accurately represent the lines of therapy for 95% of patients within a specific disease subset.

How does the company support your career growth?

As engineering manager, I am invested in the professional development of the people I work with. I train team members by pulling them out of their comfort zones to the uncomfortable territory. At Flatiron, it is one of our values - greatness and comfort rarely co-exist.

Kevin

At Flatiron, we believe that learning from the experience of every cancer patient is an imperative — it is the key to accelerating research and continuing to improve the quality of care. Our mission is to serve cancer patients and our customers by dramatically improving treatment and accelerating research.

Zach Weinberg

Co-Founder, President and COO

Instead of studying the cells, I now have the opportunity to write about the patients. I can tell their stories through the research lens and enable them to advance clinical cancer research through their experiences. I certainly never lose sight of the human behind the cell anymore.
