We collect electronic health record (EHR) data from medical providers, such as doctors and hospitals, and billing data from those and insurance companies to create a unified health record across multiple providers for the purposes of studying patient population health.

More simply, we process a high volume, velocity, and variety of valuable data in order to build amazing visualizations and easily-consumed reports that help doctors make better decisions about their patients' preventative, maintenance, and emergency care, driving down costs and enabling better patient outcomes.

 

Even more simply, we help doctors tell patients how they can be healthier and how they can get better when they’re sick by enabling those doctors to see a patient’s record with every doctor they see.

  • Rust ecosystem (Tokio, Cargo)
  • Vue.js
  • WebSockets
  • PGP and GPG

Other things we’ll be working with include Amazon Web Services, Apache Nifi, Apache Beam, Atlassian Confluence, Atlassian JIRA, Github, and more. The software this team writes will be deployed on Microsoft Windows and a variety of Linux distributions, so experience with either or both is valuable.
