We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic healthcare professional with a keen interest in digital healthcare, ideally with experience in the management of medicines, chemotherapy and research protocols. The successful candidate will join an experienced and diverse team of analysts who support UCLH’s digital infrastructure.
The EHR team seek to improve patient care and staff experience through the effective use of our digital solution, Epic. We work closely with clinical, administrative and managerial staff; we analyse their processes and help them agree clinical best practice standards and workflows. The team modify Epic to reflect and support these working practices. We test changes to ensure that they fulfil organisation requirements, are safe, and work as expected. We provide support to end-users using our specialist application knowledge through regular meetings and through incident investigation and resolution. We have excellent relationships with departmental leads, super-users and subject matter experts who help prioritise our workstreams.
