Pioneering a New Era of Healthcare
Digital, Tech & Informatics
MSK is at the forefront of a digital and data transformation that will revolutionize the way the world understands and treats cancer.
We are driving forward new ideas, innovation, testing and the development of new digital products and services to support patients, researchers, and clinicians. Our technical teams are embracing agile methodologies and user-centered design to build products that will improve the patient journey. We look forward to enhancing our use of data, analytics, and technology to improve how we work and collaborate.
Leading the digital transformation at MSK is Chief Digital Officer and Head of Technology, Claus Torp Jensen. Claus is a seasoned technology executive whose arrival this fall heralds a new era and exciting time for MSK.
Digital, Tech & Informatics Opportunities
MSK is embarking on a Digital Transformation and created a Digital Accelerator to help us build our digital capabilities. The Digital Accelerator (DA) is a hub for new ideas, innovations, testing, and the development of new digital products and services to support patients, researchers, and clinicians. We’re using an agile approach and user-centered design to build products that will improve the patient journey. We’re a brand-new, lean group that is team-oriented, passionate about our work and focused on making an impact at MSK. The (DA) program goal is to navigate new ways of working within our experimentation lab, figuring out how to accelerate key initiatives, and learn how to do this at scale to bring back to the larger tech org.
The Data Products team builds software tools that make our data more accessible so that clinicians and administrators can make faster, better decisions. They’ve even designed a clinical trials search engine that uses natural language processing to streamline finding the right trials.
The Enterprise Data Group at MSK has developed and maintains one of the most robust oncology data ecosystems in all of healthcare. The integration of clinical, genomic, operational, and financial datasets has led to countless insights, but we are just beginning to capture the full value of our unstructured notes and images by way of AI and machine learning. If you are passionate about data and building innovative, collaborative solutions that will help transform the rapidly-evolving field of oncology, join us.
The Division of Health Informatics at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center manages clinician and patient-facing health information technology, including the institutional electronic health record, ancillary clinical systems, and tools that enable decision support, health information exchange, knowledge management, and patient engagement. Beyond working with the technology itself, we aim to understand the people who use it and the processes affected by its implementation. We empower our clinicians and patients with tools that support the best outcomes, and we support our researchers in their efforts to forge new territory in precision oncology. We evaluate our interventions to prove that the work we are doing is impactful, and we weigh costs and benefits to measure value and prioritize future initiatives.
“Being nimble and innovative requires both freedom to innovate and teams that are empowered to plan and deliver in a continuously optimized fashion, while at the same time aligning outcomes and work products to the overall MSK digital vision.”
