We're looking for a Director of Unstructured Data Processing (UDP) Operations 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
Much of the useful patient data in oncology is trapped in unstructured data within Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems. Unstructured data processing (UDP) combines technology, operations, and clinical expertise to enable Flatiron to unlock value from unstructured data. In this role, you'll lead the Abstraction Operations and Mortality Data teams to ensure they are consistently delivering, operating efficiently, and scaling, as needed, to meet Flatiron’s strategic business and research goals.
Reporting to the Senior Director of UDP Operations, you'll lead day-to-day operations for both teams and be responsible for the management, growth, and scaling of this large (1,500+) remote, part-time workforce. Flatiron’s real-world evidence product offerings are dependent on UDP successfully processing unstructured data in an efficient and reliable manner and the Director of UDP Operations is accountable for the team’s continued success.
In addition, you'll also:
- Design, document and execute scalable workflows and processes to ensure consistent and reliable UDP operations
- Proactively drive the strategic direction and priorities for the Abstraction Operations and Mortality Data teams based on business needs
- Support the growth of the team: hire, develop, and mentor team members; develop best practice documentation and processes; and plan for the future by identifying and addressing bottlenecks, gaps, and risks
- Work cross-functionally across Flatiron teams to plan for new projects and new feature rollouts as well as maintain business as usual
- Develop comprehensive and effective performance metrics and dashboards to inform discussions and decisions about performance management, scaling strategy, investment prioritization, etc.
The Director, UDP Operations will work collaboratively with a variety of teams (e.g., IT, Recruiting, and People Ops) as well as key stakeholders, including Product, Clinical Data, Abstraction, Real World Evidence and other research project teams.
