Make a big difference to patient care
Are you passionate about how digital can make a difference?
We are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic support analyst to help patients and clinical teams in the use of our award winning patient online service, My Medical Record.
The UHSFT Digital Programme Team are delivering key components of the Trust’s Digital Strategy including the Global Digital Exemplar Programme. They work closely with colleagues to introduce new technology and systems to the organisation. They engage with the chief clinical informatics officers and the chief nursing informatics and other clinical champions to ensure that projects are clinically led and focused on delivering benefits for staff and patients.
The My Medical Record programme is a leading patient online service that exists to support patients in managing their own healthcare whilst away from the hospital. The service supports clinicians and patients at fourteen hospitals around the country and our work programme is rapidly expanding. As such, we are growing our existing team to support this programme.
The majority of your time will be spent focussing on supporting existing users (both clinicians and patients) and managing all operational enquiries via email and phone. You will work with a busy team to help resolve issues through to completion whilst keeping the customer informed. You will be trained in resolution of simple fixes. There will also be other back-office admin duties as required.
We are looking for an enthusiastic customer focussed person to support the team in the expansion of the service to many more patients and clinical teams. The successful candidate will have a good understanding of information technology and have experience using the web, email and back office software. Experience of direct customer service roles or working in service environments is highly desirable.
