Medical (ICU) Data Expert Pacmed

About Pacmed

Pacmed strives to make healthcare a continuous learning network. All patients should receive care adjusted to their personal needs and all caretakers should learn from all decisions made within healthcare. Pacmed aims to achieve this by building and implementing decision support software based on machine learning. Our software supports intensive care doctors in their most important decisions, starting with safely and adequately discharging patients from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). You will join at a point in time where Pacmed has implemented its first software in the ICU and is preparing to scale that software across the Netherlands and Europe.

How will you contribute to making health care more data-driven?

You will act as the bridge between the clinic and Pacmed’s development team. Having in-depth knowledge of the workflow, medical practice and data flows in the ICU, you have an essential role in making sure Pacmed uses clinical data adequately to create responsible machine learning algorithms for safe and impactful decision support software that addresses the needs of the clinician in the ICU. Important aspects of the job include:
• Identifying opportunities to enhance the validity and homogeneity of data outputted by Pacmed's EHR data processing infrastructure
• Clinically defining clinical concepts to be translated in code
• Medically interpreting and validating the results of the outputs, for example machine learning models
• Bring clinical expertise into Pacmed’s product strategy and new product development
• Interacting with external clinicians to communicate and validate results of machine learning algorithm development
• Monitoring the behaviour and impact of the machine learning algorithms in production
• Supporting junior medical staff with medical validation
