Are you interested in serving rural and underserved populations?

Washington County Regional Medical Center is looking for one or two students in the upcoming semesters to work on an ongoing project that pulls data from their electronic medical record system’s database to be displayed in a dashboard that gives both executives and clinical staff access to real time data. You and the agency will use the system to pull financial data, census data, referral patterns and trends to help support individuals living in rural and underserved areas. You will be in charge of verifying the data on the dashboard against known values and evaluating the usefulness of certain data. Most importantly, you will serve as a key liaison between the developers and the hospital.
