Specific Job Details:

Our Client is implementing the Epic EHR across the enterprise in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Arizona and Florida. One of the areas of the project is Enduser Devices which includes surveying devices, identifying gaps, procuring and deploying new devices, performing Epic application build, and executing a Technical Dress Rehearsal (TDR). TDR involves testing each device at each of our Client's sites in the weeks and months prior to each go-live (total of 4 go-lives). These devices include workstations, printers, e-signature pads, bar code scanners, and other enduser devices that integrate with the Epic EHR. This specific position is for Technical Dress Rehearsal (TDR) Leads and Testers in preparation for our Client's Health Systems (MCHS) go-live in Southeast and Southwest Minnesota and our Client's Rochester go-live. Additional consideration would be given for our Client's Arizona and our Client's Florida go-lives, but given the extensive travel that would be involved, the ability to commit to AZ/FL support would not be a prerequisite for the Minnesota go-lives.
