We are searching for a Systems Analyst II  for clinical applications – someone who works well in a fast-paced healthcare setting dealing with critical patient-care applications. In this position, you will be in a role implementing, supporting, and maintaining clinical software solutions. The Systems Analyst II supports applications that are critical to patient care at the point-of-care, such as bedside level or operating room. Imagine how critical a vitals monitor is to an infant in our NICU area, and you have an idea of the importance of this role.   


You will be joining a team of 10 members who are system analysts and application architects supporting clinical software solutions and point-of-care medical device integration with various clinical support systems.  Solutions include Code Care Team closed-loop communication tools, real-time capture and access to patient-care information, and point-of-care data monitoring and archiving.   You need to bring on an understanding that data has to be accurate and effective for these applications to provide the right level of care at a critical level.


This is an opening  that requires an analyst who understands critical support of clinical software solutions for complex departmental systems (such as Cardiology, Pathology, Renal Dialysis, NeuroSurgery), as well as application architecture (such as databases and server/client relationships) and design.  The employee will also have a project manager role to evaluate possible solutions with clinical partners for new / existing systems and implement them with a technical team. 


This employee will need to have the skills to interact with all levels of people in the organization – technical and biomedical staff, nurses, vendors, clinical leaders, directors, and even surgeons.  You will be asked to conduct training and presentations on various applications we support.  Also there are on-call rotations that the entire staff participates in.


The Systems Analyst II must be comfortable gathering information, and then building and testing  to make sure the data and applications are working properly.
