MSK is seeking a Project Manager to join the Precision Care Deliverygroup in the Division of Health Informatics (DHI).
The Division of Health Informatics (DHI) focuses on the interaction of people, processes, and technology to support the exceptional patient care delivered at MSK. We manage a suite of clinician- and patient-facing information systems including the electronic health record, patient portal and tools that enable decision support, health information exchange and knowledge management. We bring these tools to bear to support important programs of care at MSK.
Within DHI, the Precision Care Deliverygroup identifies ways to use information technology to support new programs of care at MSK that are emerging in response to MSKs strategic goals, the changing health care delivery environment, the changing technology environment and increasing consumer expectations to have technology support their care experience. We work with clinical, administrative, operational and strategic leadership at MSK to identify opportunities to change the way MSK delivers care while increasing quality, safety, effectiveness and efficiency. We identify ways to leverage emerging technologies -- for example, patient facing technology, communications technology, data analytics and electronic health records -- to advance the organizations goals, improve care and increase patient and clinician satisfaction.
