Principal MTS IC Role:As the team responsible for all data movement into, out of, and around athenaNet, the Integration Services R&D team is executing on athena’s vision of building the healthcare backbone of the United States.
We deal with new standards like FHIR which open up our systems to third party developers, as well as managing tens of thousands of connections to labs, pharmacies, and healthcare registries talking HL7. We handle large scale imports of legacy EHR data as well as connecting to medical devices in the Internet of Things. We serve up the data that gives providers a patient’s medical history across the continuum of care, as well as real time visibility into the cost and availability of orders and referrals. We send data to and receive it from providers, payers, patients and all corners of the healthcare ecosystem. Wherever healthcare data is coming from, going to, or to be found, we are plugging it into the backbone and making it available to athena’s products and those of our partners and even competitors in our efforts to make healthcare work the way it should.
We are looking for experienced software engineers to help us refine our architectural vision, evolve our infrastructure, and migrate onto the next generation software platform that athena is investing in.
