An experienced EPIC interface analyst is needed to serve as the Bridges interface resource during the analysis, build / configuration, validation and execution of data conversions. This data conversion project will provide historical data necessary to support clinicians in delivering high quality patient care and meet the requirements of a legal medical record. This effort will be done as part of a phased implementation of a large, integrated Electronic Health Record (EHR) system for multiple sites.
The interface analyst is expected to apply appropriate best practices to ensure high-quality, low-error data conversions. Ideally, this analyst would have experience with complex clinical data conversions and with Epic system implementations.
Key responsibilities include, but are not limited to, the following:
Perform preliminary investigation of interface-related business and system requirements identified during the analysis phase.
Communicate with the other team members to ensure that application functionality and workflow requirements and needs are being addressed and met.
Serve as the point person for assigned interfaces with the following responsibilities:
o Coordinate analysis calls
o Maintain business requirements documentation
o Determine impact to interface, document configuration and build changes needed
o Escalate issues or roadblocks encountered during analysis
o Perform configuration / build changes
o Coordinate or assist in all testing/validation of the interface and conversion
