Job recruitment under way for Johns Hopkins Medicine electronic record system

Johns Hopkins Medicine has begun recruiting members for a team that will implement a new electronic record across the health system. Partnering with Epic, a leading software company that provides electronic and financial information systems for the health care industry, JHM is currently looking to fill more than 60 positions that call for clinical, administrative, financial, project-management and IT skills.

The initial hiring phase of what will be a multiyear effort is being referred to as the Ambulatory First rollout. These positions will focus on business areas such as clinical documentation, analytics and research, as well as scheduling and registration, according to William A. Baumgartner, the Vincent L. Gott Professor at the School of Medicine and senior vice president of JHM, and Stephanie Reel, vice president for information services for JHM and university vice provost and CIO for information technology, who are leading the initiative.
