Job opening: LOINC Program Manager

Regenstrief Institute, Inc. is seeking a Program Manager of LOINC and Health Data Standards to join our creative, intellectually stimulating, open work environment. The flagship of our work in health data standards is the Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes (LOINC) vocabulary standard. Today, LOINC is being used in nearly every corner of the planet, and is now a part of national health programs in many countries, including the U.S. In fact, there are hundreds of millions of patients with billions of medical test results stored in health records around the world that are coded with LOINC. Your iPhone even has LOINC inside it. In your role as Program Manager, you will be working with world-class scientists and making a global impact through health information technology.

We want to hire a mission-focused, seasoned, strategic, and process-minded leader with experience scaling projects and teams. We are looking for someone excited about leading and developing a performance culture among a group of diverse and talented individuals. We want to hire someone with high resolve and character who is hungry to learn new things and help high achievers become even more effective.

This job requires a bachelor’s or advanced degree and five years of project management experience. You will be responsible for the day to day operations of the Program, including financial management strategy, overseeing the funding and proposal process, contributing to our strategic goals, as well as creating and implementing policies and procedures to help us be effective. We know that you probably haven’t worked on something quite like this before and that you can’t get a degree in LOINCing (yet). As a non-profit, we are funded primarily by external grants and contracts, so experience managing the end-to-end process from proposal to successfully completion is strongly preferred. We would also prefer someone who has experience managing one (or both) of our main business activities: software development and health-related knowledge products.

We use a combination of internally-developed tools, common office software, and other web applications like Basecamp, Highrise, and Help Scout for getting stuff done. Learning, applying, and fine-tuning workflows with new software applications should be something you thrive on. Being proficient with spreadsheets is key, and databases like Microsoft Access would be a bonus.

In short, we want to hire an effective and motivated leader who can help our small but growing team accomplish even bigger things.

A successful candidate will:

  • Have the skills, sensitivity, and personal confidence to tap into the power that each member of the team brings.
  • Develop, implement, and oversee efficient and effective systems to increase our productivity and impact.
  • At the same time, help the team retain the innovative spark and high quality content development that drive Regenstrief’s unique approach to Data Standards development.

Here are some of the functions you’ll be responsible for:

  • Overseeing and organizing the work of the Program team.
  • Ensuring that the Program is adhering to its committed deliverables and long term plan.
  • Providing analytical support to the Program Director, including development of internal management reporting capabilities and monitoring key business metrics.
  • Promoting a culture of high performance and continuous improvement that values learning and a commitment to quality.
  • Directly managing and developing other program staff, and assuming indirect supervisory responsibilities for all Program personnel who are not direct reports.
  • Planning, coordinating, and executing an annual budget process.
  • Contributing to development of new lines of business, helping to advance projects from concept to full production operation.
  • Preparing and presenting progress reports to clients, granting agencies, or other persons.
  • Overseeing an appropriate system of policies, internal controls, accounting standards, and procedures.
  • Coordinating, assembling, and submitting funding proposals.
  • Coordinating and convening events with international participants.
  • Serve as liaison for the Program and the status of its projects.

Other Position Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree in a related field or equivalent work experience required.
  • Master’s degree and/or advanced information technology certifications are preferred.
  • Five years of project management experience is required.
  • Successful completion of Human Subjects Certification is required.
