The Yale Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging is recruiting a Vice Chair for Medical Imaging Informatics. This is a replacement role for our existing Vice Chair, Professor Irena Tocino, who will be soon retiring after a long career in informatics.
The Department of Radiology has an enviable track record of innovative, effective and transformative imaging informatics expertise. Having led the way with successfully integrating a progressive PACS imaging platform over the past 3 years, the post holder will oversee a strong team of radiologists with a mature interest in informatics to continue this trajectory. Together with representation from Yale New Haven Health System’s Clinical Information Technology, the Vice Chair leads the Yale Program for Innovation in Imaging Informatics (YPI3). Within this entity, a robust timeline of projects in the form of EMR/PACS optimization, next generation radiology reports, clinical decision support, radiology analytics, natural language processing , AI implementations and integrated industry relationships takes place. The Vice Chair is charged with coordinating the program’s mission to deliver a centralized administrative imaging IT structure that provides the springboard for innovation, the facilitation of programmatic development, supports radiology operations and reduces inefficiencies.
The postholder will also be considered for the position of Yale New Haven Health’s Director for System Radiology IT. In this role, the successful candidate will be part of YNHH’s System Radiology Optimization Committee and will advise on formulating imaging informatics policies, protocols and recommendations throughout all 4 delivery network radiology departments.
We are looking for a dynamic and experienced individual in the informatics field to continue Yale’s IT leadership on the national stage. Academic rank will be based on the candidate’s current role and responsibilities. Applicants must be fellowship trained in a major imaging discipline, have experience and ideally certification in imaging informatics, be board certified, and must be eligible for licensure in the state of Connecticut. The applicant will be expected to work clinically within the Department but will be provided dedicated time to participate in informatics operations, research and other scholarly activities. A commitment to teaching residents and fellows is required.
