Description Since 2007, OnePartner has been providing consulting and data solution services with a specialty in technology and healthcare transformation. OnePartner is looking for qualified candidates to help us on challenging health information exchange (HIE) projects. As our team continues to grow, we're looking for talented, experienced software developers and interoperability professionals with experience in health information exchange.

Here's who should send in a resume for consideration:
• Someone who is familiar with interoperability and is comfortable not only with traditional point-to-point integration with HL7 2.x but also with CCD, C-CDA, and/or IHE profiles. Understanding of one or more EMRs (integration, single sign-on, etc.) is also beneficial. We’re looking for a hands-on developer who can fulfill the responsibilities often assigned to an interface analyst, such as requirements gathering and development of technical specs. That said, the primary skill set is technical, and successful candidates need to be able to develop complex interfaces from beginning to end.

• A software developer experienced with web and/or desktop application development and hands-on experience with languages such as Java, C#, and SQL are desired. The most important thing is that we need a person with a professional software developer's mindset, a passion for solving problems and adapts easily to new technologies.
An ideal candidate would have prior experience, but not required, with dbMotion or another HIE platform. Our work at OnePartner encompasses a very broad range of experience, and it's a rare individual who's strong in all areas. The ideal candidate will possess not only a range of technical knowledge and capabilities, but also eagerness to understand policy considerations that drive an HIE, experience dealing with the dynamics of stakeholder and vendor participation in an exchange, strong communication skills and an ability to evangelize on the benefits of a health information exchange.
The right candidate will be able to quickly climb the OnePartnerHIE learning curve if they already possess an understanding of underlying concepts such as:
• Traditional HL7 messaging / integration (ADT and clinical message types)
• CDA-based message formats (CCD, C-CDA)
• Web services / XML / XSLT
• IHE profiles, including PIX/PDQ, XDS.b, and XCA
• EHR interoperability
• Patient and provider portals
• Population management / analytics
• Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMHs)

We want people who are smart, creative and like to be challenged.
