We’re looking for a Director of Health Informatics to help us accomplish our mission to improve lives by learning from the experience of every cancer patient. Here's what you need to know about the role, our team and why Flatiron Health is the right next step in your career.

What You'll Do

In this role, you'll be responsible for the team developing and maintaining the data that powers OncoEMR and Flatiron’s suite of related products. Your contributions will help to accelerate Flatiron’s ability to develop data driven solutions for our customers.

This position will partner closely with Flatiron’s Clinical, Design, Engineering, and Product teams. You will identify new opportunities to improve how we capture and maintain data, and drive strategic design and development decisions to leverage healthcare data within clinical workflows, supporting interoperability and the proper life cycle of data. In addition, you will:

  • Mentor team members in industry best practices of healthcare data to ensure effective adoption of practices across Flatiron products (e.g., approach to interoperability of data elements)
  • Track upcoming regulatory requirements including ONC certification, communicate upcoming milestones, and lead strategically towards them
  • Proactively identify and highlight opportunities for informatics involvement early in product development 
  • Operationalize informatics as a sustainable role within product development
  • Maintain active involvement and work to establish Flatiron as a qualified contributor in industry groups (EHRA, AMIA, HL7, etc.) to identify emerging best practices and bring to Flatiron opportunities for transformative changes  

The Health Informatics team is responsible for improving the integrity and use of patients’ health data with a focus on the point of care by leveraging and applying industry standards. Utilizing such standards, the team works from ingestion through the end-user experience to continuously advance the potential that Flatiron’s data has to become information.  

Who You Are

You are an informaticist with a deep understanding of EHR development and certification, logical data modeling, and/or clinical decision support. You likely have a clinical background (Nurse Practitioner, Physician Assistant, MD/DO, Pharm D, or RN) with strong technical ability. You are able to lead informatics and cross-functional teams to adopt best practices for creating and maintaining high-quality and high-integrity data. You have a passion for healthcare data, are kind and collaborative, and are excited by the chance to lead a team of informaticists. 

  • You have 5+ years of informatics experience with people management experience, preferably with an EHR background
  • You have successfully led the informatics design and implementation of multi-domain health data applications
  • You have formed successful partnerships with product and clinical leadership to build and implement effective healthcare IT products
  • You are forward thinking - you can consume information to arrive at conclusions about what will be important in the future, and lay the groundwork to enable future opportunities
  • You have a strong understanding of FHIR and other interoperability standards (including HL7 v2 and v3) and understand their impact on today’s healthcare landscape 
  • You have excellent command of technology to allow deep understanding of data
  • You are self-motivated and able to identify areas of opportunity and deliver high-value contributions 

Extra Credit

  • You possess a strong background in oncology data
  • You have strong ties to industry informatics groups (AMIA, HL7, etc.)

 If this sounds like you, you'll fit right in at Flatiron.

An Insider's view of Flatiron Health

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

Software Engineer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

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.
