eHospital Software Developer

Job Reference: 358-2201768-COR-B

University Hospitals of Leicester
County Hall, Glenfield, Leicester, Leicester
£31,365 - £37,890 per ann

The IM&T department at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust is looking to recruit a software developer to join our eHospital development team.

As one of the largest acute teaching hospital trusts in the country, we are using virtualisation, mobile and cloud-based technologies to transform the delivery of IT to our user base comprising around 15,000 clinicians and administrative staff, 8000 PCs and over 3000 mobile devices. Our 'eHospital' programme aims to deliver a key strategic objective for the organisation, that is becoming a digital hospital by 2022 and in particular reducing the reliance on paper across all care settings. We are working with our strategic EPR vendor on a first of type, mobile first solution that seeks to break new ground in the healthcare IT marketplace.

It is an exciting time to join University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust as we have been selected as one of the first trusts to join the Digital Aspirant programme by NHSX. This programme will give us additional funding to support the implementation of our EPR programme over the next three years.

As a software developer you will have a key part to play, working on multiple projects simultaneously alongside business analysts, solution architects, system suppliers and stakeholders from across our three hospital sites. Supporting our eHospital Software Engineers you will work closely with our teams of clinical facilitators and eHospital Programme leads, to transform solution designs and requirements specifications into robust solutions. You will ensure best practice is followed in terms of development, configuration and testing lifecycles and follow a mixture of agile and traditional waterfall project approaches.

The work will entail the use of a range of technologies along an open, standards-based approach to design and develop electronic data capture forms, build correspondence templates and assist with back end systems integration using HL7 messaging and FHIR. You will also be required to use HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery to optimise and design electronic assessment forms and web applications.

Experience of using .NET Core, C#, MVC, Microsoft SQL Server and Healthcare Integration Engine platforms would be an advantage.

If you're a proactive and creative technologist with excellent interpersonal skills please get in touch for an informal discussion.
