Job Description

A Clinical Data Engineer (CDE) develops, implements and supports at least two of the following CCL (Cerner Command Language) Reporting, Event Set Hierarchy, Discern Analytics Reporting, Rules and Alerts for all applications Intermediated with the enterprise Clinical System. The goals for support and development are aligned directly with the Clinical data needs of our facilities. The Clinical Data Engineer projects can range from small functionality enhancements for one user to a broad user base that transform and optimize the process of an entire Clinical area. The Clinical Data Engineer works closely with clinical staff for all applications including both in-house application level subject matter experts and the Clinicians at our facilities. A CDE is visible internal spokesperson for all Clinical Reports, Rules and Alerts including educating both internal and external customers on the design logic for any Clinical Reports, Rules or Alerts.

The Intermediate Clinical Data Engineer is responsible to understand and apply technology tools, systems, policies and processes that are required to ensure the protection of Adventist Health System data assets, Protected Health Information (PHI) and all forms of personal identity information.

This position will perform all procedures necessary for the secure operation, reliability and integrity of any data provided to our facilities or vendors across multiple Clinical applications. This will include development, implementation, standardized coding documentation, appropriate testing techniques, structured troubleshooting techniques and quality assurance processes. The Intermediate Clinical Data Engineer is responsible to adhere to company policies and procedures in regard to data transmissions, development or maintenance requests.

CDE will work directly with the user community and Clinical application teams to develop guidelines, processes, and infrastructure to accommodate user data needs. Knowledge of change control policies and procedures are required to ensure that the user community understands the necessary procedures to maintain best practices for delivering requested data needs. The CDE will conduct routine code auditing and evaluations as requested and provide management with appropriate assessments and recommendations. The CDE will assist in the auditing of new and existing code to ensure that appropriate controls exist, that processing is efficient and accurate, and that all coding standards and procedures are in compliance with corporate and industry recognized standards.

Although the open position is for a Clinical Data Engineer Intermediate, we’ll need whoever we hire to act as more of a project manager and less of a programmer.  While it is definitely a plus to have CCL, Discern Rules, and MPage experience, it’s not completely necessary.  The person hired can go through training for those technical areas.  It’s not a remote position.  This position will help maintain the ticket queue and be responsible for getting technical specifications from requestors as requests come in.  The position will be involved with data analysis projects.  The position will be deeply involved with the Service Now ticketing system and data analysis within the system.  The position will attend the weekly Service Now Change subcommittee meeting as a representative of Discern.  Ernst & Young monthly auditing of Discern changes will be primarily handled by this position.  This position may be asked to work on projects owned by Discern to coordinate work through the other clinical IT teams and acting as a go-between with the requestor and the clinical IT department.  Clinical background at Florida Hospital is a plus.
