Job Summary

The Department of Biomedical and Health Informatics (DBHi) at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) is recruiting a Manager of Data Reporting and Management to lead a team of experienced information analysts and programmers specializing in the area of clinical research data reporting. Successful candidates will have expertise in the areas of clinical research data management, extraction and transformation methods for use of that data in research, and governance and operational issues involving enterprise-level, large-scale, and complex clinical data sets.

This position will serve researchers who require access to electronic health records via the Hospital’s Epic system and researchers who require data capture and archiving solutions for their prospective clinical research.  The candidate will lead a team of information analysts to provide retrospective data to researchers from the electronic health record and will offer solutions for data capture and management of prospective or ongoing research studies.  There are four primary areas where the candidate will continually demonstrate his/her knowledge and capability in order to succeed in this position:

2) Tactical leadership in consulting with individual researchers to deliver tractable solutions for research studies ranging from low to high complexity and effort. 
3)  Strategic leadership in aligning with a variety of regulatory and administrative oversight groups to ensure that processes and procedures are of high quality and in compliance with Hospital policy.  Additionally, the candidate will be able to represent clinical data management and reporting activities in the evolving regulatory landscape.  The candidate will also seek out collaborators inside the Hospital and at other academic research centers to incorporate developing technologies and processes.
4)  Group-based leadership for 5-10 direct reports using appropriate levels of delegation and tracking of metrics key to the demonstration of success and growth.
