Director of Medical Content and Clinical Informatics
|Location||Orlando OR Remote Location / Work from Home|
|Job Type||Full Time|
Guideline Central is the global leader and publisher of medical society-endorsed guidelines products. We are located in Lake Mary, Florida (Orlando), rated number 4 in the country by Money Magazine as the top place to live and work. We are growing our dynamic organization to meet customer demand and seek a highly motivated self-starting business development/sales director.
As we continue to grow rapidly and expand into new areas, we are seeking an experienced, hard-working medical informatics expert to guide the content creation and presentation within our digital platform. We are looking for an individual who embraces challenges, thrives on new ideas and innovations and loves developing meaningful solutions to make clinical recommendations easier to access and implement in daily practice. We offer an exciting, passionate, team-centric work environment with the mutual goal of transforming clinical decision making and improving patient outcomes.
The Director of Medical Informatics and Content will work with our growing digital development team to architect and render brief algorithmic guideline content into print, web and mobile formats. As our director/lead, you will be expected to manage and architect the informatics platform, and guide other team members so that we can achieve our goal of helping clinicians make accurate clinical decisions quicker, and more efficiently.
Duties and Responsibilities
- Direct and architect the clinical informatics and content management aspect of the Guideline Central content and platform.
- Identify essential information from full text guidelines, and create condensed versions that contain only the most critical pieces of information that clinicians need at the point of care.
- Also consider the differences in need between a specialist vs generalist in certain guidelines
- Determine how each piece of content from the guidelines should be formatted for each medium and device/screen size.
- For example, a drug table in a printed pocket guide might more sense formatted as an accordion style within the app. Or a static algorithm within the print might need to be “clickable” within the apps. Perhaps a calculator will need to be created from a disease activity scoring table? You will help direct and answer these questions.
- Help guide and build a taxonomy and schema for helping to index, tag and relate pieces of content from our various data sources (Drugs, Guidelines, Calculators, Journals, Etc.). This will be the backbone of condensing the guidelines at a “personalized” level for each patient situation at point of care.
- Create new algorithms and point of care versions from existing guidelines.
- For example, a pocket guideline on Rheumatoid Arthritis – what set of questions can be created to condense the guide even further for each unique patient at point of care? Perhaps step 1 is to determine whether the patient has early or established RA? You will answer this.
- Guidance and suggestions on how to interlink data sources together, so that the end result is more valuable than each stand-alone part.
- For example, you might take a calculator (like ASCVD risk) and use the guidelines as a basis to populate specific treatment recommendations based on the output of the calculator. Or perhaps you will make a connection or a new algorithm between ADA’s Diabetes guidelines and the Endocrine Society’s Obesity guidelines.
- Consult with outside subject matter experts from various specialty/therapeutic areas to ensure that the content and display is optimized for the end-user and their profession/specialty.
- For example, you might need to solicit the help of a radiation oncologist to determine how to present the recommendations within a Thyroid Cancer guideline.
- Storing, managing and analyzing data to make suggestions on how to increase engagement, add value and improve the user experience.
- Drive optimization and automation of processes and hand offs between editorial and digital dev team
- Proactively research and find additional data sources that can enhance the current content, and determine how to make these “fit” within the decision making process
- For example, you might suggest we include relevant ICD10 codes relevant to a specific guideline recommendation, and if so, how and where are these displayed for optimal usefulness?
- Strong project management skills
- Clinical knowledge and familiarity across many specialties and therapeutic areas
- Understanding of scientific and medical decision support tools and treatment pathways
- Experience working with digital health informatics, and translating recommendations into practice
- Knowledge of design standards and how to optimize UI/UX for the end-user
- Basic understanding of pharma and device industry, and the role they play in content dissemination
- You are an active user of popular medical apps, and know how they work
- Proficient in decision-tree composition, presentation of tables, figures and algorithms
- Strong work ethic, organized, self-motivated and committed to honoring deadlines
- Prefer to be “hands on” to get the job done (even if it means manually tagging some of the content)
- Some travel may be required
Education and Experience
- Background in medical informatics and/or medicine
- Minimum 3+ years of related experience (5+ preferred)
- Able to cite specific (similar) contributions with previous employer(s)
- Preferred: advanced degree such as NP, PA, MD, PhD, DO, MS in HI or PharmD
