S.i. Systems enterprise public sector client is seeking a Senior Project Manager to lead the Provider/Service Directory (PSD) project

The Connected Health System (CHS) Program is a group of complementary strategic initiatives with the goal of digitally connecting healthcare systems across British Columbia.  These initiatives provide the ability for systems to transfer and securely share information within and between systems and stakeholders.The program includes:
  1. Provider Portal - makes common provincial services and clinical information available to all providers (including private practice physicians and allied health specialists) without needing to embed those capabilities directly within their existing systems
  2. Provider/Service Directory – enables the rapid identification by location, specialty and capacity of all BC providers to speed up referral and ordering processes and ensure that reports are sent to the right places.
  3. Clinical Service Requests - Conduct a joint RFP with the New St. Paul’s project to procure a full Clinical Service Request solution covering eReferral, eConsult, eOrder and eForms.
  4. Report Distribution – enhance the existing model and address current issues
  5. Primary Care Patient Summary – enables providers to generate and share patient summaries using the Canadian PS-CA standard
  6. Longitudinal Record Access - Expose provincial data and information through a standardized layer of APIs including lab results, diagnostic imaging reports, alerts, allergies, medications, encounters
  7. IDAM - enable a single sign-on capability enabling providers to log in once to their EMR or CIS and then cascade that secure authentication to other systems without subsequent logons, in support of the initiatives above.
