The Online Advocate is a small software development team at Boston Children's Hospital. We build applications that transform the way providers understand and care for patients/clients and their families.
We are currently developing two major projects:
HelpSteps is a set of web-based tools to help individuals connect with local health and social services agencies best-suited to meet their needs.
Conceived in 2004 by Dr. Eric Fleegler, the long-term goal of the HelpSteps toolset is for all individuals and families to be able to access the agencies and resources that will help them address their health and social service needs. To achieve that goal we have developed tools to efficiently and effectively identify users' needs and provide targeted referrals to the health and social service agencies and resources best-suited to meet those needs.
ICISS is a web-based platform that provides remote monitoring, real-time analysis, and tracking of patients' disease symptoms and response to therapy over time.
ICISS enables clinics to use electronic surveys to gather data remotely from multiple responders, including patients, parents, school personnel and ancillary providers, and view the responses in a timely manner using graphical, tabular, and natural language summary formats.
By using ICISS to monitor their patients between visits, providers will be better able to identify potential problems early enough to intervene more effectively, while also more appropriately matching healthcare resources to patient needs. In turn, this will lower the cost of care for these patients.
We're looking for Java developers to join our team. For full details please visit the official job posting on the Children's Hospital jobs site.
