Brief Description of Duties:
This position is responsible for providing informatics-related development and support services to research teams as part of Stony Brook University's Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC). Using a global, HIPAA-compliant electronic data capture (EDC) application, REDCap, and Forte's clinical trials management system (CTMS), OnCore, and working with multidisciplinary teams, the incumbent will design, develop, and manage electronic clinical research forms (eCRFs) and data capture projects for clinical trial research studies, toward driving the CTSC's core mission of accelerating clinical research discoveries and their translation to innovative patient care “from bench to bedside.” Having a desire to not only develop a functional understanding of novel technologies across health, biomedical research, and information technology disciplines, but be able to innovate within novel research methodology and data management will be an essential component to this position's success. Therefore, having strong analytical and design skills with an ability to apply diagnostic techniques for troubleshooting technical issues is necessary. Qualified candidates should be able to demonstrate a functional understanding of the clinical research workflow including the ability to abstract information requirements from real-world processes to understand information flows in computer systems.
This new role will interact with diverse members of the Stony Brook Medicine community, including clinicians, research faculty, data managers, study coordinators, statisticians, and information technology, and will report to the Clinical Research Informatics Manager, under the Director of Innovation and Research Services at SBMIT. Therefore, being able to interact with individuals at various levels within an institution as well as being able to communicate technical information to both technical and non-technical personnel at various levels in the organization is essential.
The successful incumbent will have excellent interpersonal and customer service skills, exercising strong organizational skills with an exceptional attention to detail. Essential for this role is the adeptness to work independently as well as part of a team with a collaborative approach to problem solving.
Design and develop data capture projects for clinical research projects and maintain them through their full lifecycle — including feasibility, design, testing, implementation, reporting, documentation, and closeout — and provide training and support to research staff as required.
Determine data management and workflow needs of researchers; provide and/or coordinate solutions according to information architecture and data stewardship best practices.
Implement enhancements and extensions to application functionality using web development languages such as HTML and PHP as needed.
Provide ongoing technical advice, expertise and support to end-users for the OnCore CTMS and REDCap EDC applications. Devise and recommend solutions to resolve moderately complex issues with user access, design, functionality, reporting, or data quality/integrity.
Work with REDCap and OnCore support teams to develop, analyze, test, and implement upgrades, patches, or changes to functionality.
Communicate list of open queries and progress to the group in weekly meetings.
Plan, develop, evaluate, and update end-user education and training programs as needed.
Create training materials, host office hours, training sessions, and presentations for the Stony Brook University CTSC and other entities as required.
Build relationships with clinical research teams as their primary point of contact for technical assistance with their research databases.
Serve as liaison to information technology staff, application vendor and community, clinical trial officers, and end-users.
Identify data management requirements for research protocols and produce required reporting and documentation of, for instance, clinical trial activities and patient demographics, for meetings and periodic status reports.
Collaborate with study teams to develop data management plans (DMPs) and other related documents to meet funding requirements, as needed.
Collaborate with application and systems administrators to develop, implement, and evaluate SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures).
Ensure security and compliance by monitoring electronic projects for proper user access configurations.
Other duties or projects as assigned. Stay informed about new application features,
technologies, practices, and industry trends through lists, publications and conferences.
