The Cancer Surveillance System (CSS) is an integral part of the Division of Public Health Sciences Epidemiology Department of Fred Hutch. CSS was established in 1974 under contract with the U.S. National Cancer Institutes's Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) program. Its mission is to provide high quality data on all newly-diagnosed cancers (except non-melanoma skin cancers) occurring in residents of 13 counties in northwest Washington State. This department is responsible for the initial identification of 35,000 potential incident cases annually. CSS staff members perform all necessary activities to synthesize information from multiple sources and to adjudicate and validate 350 data items per case from traditional and non-traditional data sources.


Data Coordinators are responsible for reviewing all forms of HIPAA medical documentation for state mandated cancer registration and code over 350 data items for each new cancer diagnosis. In this position, one will be expected to consistently document and classify demographic, incidence, molecular, histologic, treatment and survival information following complex guidelines promulgated and annually updated by the national standard setters. Because this data is used to address clinical, epidemiologic and public health questions at both the local and national level, all staff members are required to participate in ongoing daily training to maintain a high level of technical accuracy demanded of this data. Nearly all aspects of this position are performed on a computer and from reading online source material. This is a reading-intensive position and requires someone who is capable of working independently.

Responsibilities

  • Monitor existing source record volumes, timeliness, and format and work with data providers regarding issues through resolution
  • Precisely apply the closely related but distinct lexicons for determining disease reportability, number of primaries, primary site and histology and for assigning various stage at diagnosis classifications
  • Synthesize patient's medical experience from diagnosis through first course of treatment following documentation protocols for various data source types
  • Document and classify data from traditional HIPAA medical documentation sources (EMR, NA, PR, HL7, and DI) and emerging new sources (MU CDA, ANSI-837, RIS, CHARS, and APCD) according to specific guidelines
  • Interpret, classify, and report on experimental, molecular, and pathologic test results from patient transcripts
  • Adjudicate discrepancies in data provided by various data sources
  • Perform targeted audits on outlier cohorts
  • Prepare written reports on data results as part of ongoing quality assurance protocols
  • Write newsletter articles as assigned or voluntarily submit articles geared toward improving the skills of our data providers
  • Follow established protocols and provide recommendations for process improvements
  • Update existing procedural documentation and draft new procedures
  • Validate training exercises and provide narrative feedback on issues using prescribed format
  • Meet the minimum of 98% accuracy in incident reporting and progress to 99.5% accuracy
  • Meet the minimum productivity standards for the various workflows
  • Report on performance daily

Qualifications

Minimum qualifications

  • BA/BS in a scientific field that includes college level anatomy, physiology, and medical terminology, and the ability to apply the scientific knowledge within this specific area of study
  • Ability to work full days at a computer workstation as all aspects of this position are performed on a computer on-site at the Hutch. This is a reading-intensive position using two or three monitors concurrently displaying scientific and medical technical documentation.
  • High attention to detail
  • Clear and concise writing skills


Preferred qualifications

  • Demonstrated experience with procedure or technical writing (provide samples)
  • Prior experience working in a data-driven environment

The Hutchinson Institute for Cancer Outcomes Research (HICOR), in collaboration with Bayer HealthCare, is seeking applications for a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship in health economics and outcomes research. HICOR is located within Fred Hutch’s Public Health Sciences Division, and is built on the vision of reducing the human and economic burden of cancer for patients, families and society. The HICOR team works to develop and apply innovative scientific methods in health economics, clinical and public health research and data science to enhance value in cancer care and improve outcomes for patients.

 

The interdisciplinary research portfolio includes studies in cost-effectiveness alongside clinical trials, cancer care delivery research, pragmatic clinical trials, financial toxicity and economic burden, methods for comparative- and cost-effectiveness research, and cancer informatics. Bayer HealthCare is among the world’s foremost innovators in the field of pharmaceutical and medical products, and they research, develop, manufacture and market products to improve the health of people.

 

The successful candidate will spend twelve months on-site at Fred Hutch in Seattle, Washington followed by twelve months on-site at Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals Inc, located in Whippany, New Jersey.

Responsibilities

We are offering the successful candidate an excellent opportunity to fully participate in the scientific aspects of this portfolio, including research proposal development, data analysis and reporting, manuscript preparation, and participation in national scientific meetings. The first year of the fellowship is conducted at Fred Hutch in Seattle. The objective of the first year is to provide the fellow with the training and experience necessary for conducting pharmacoeconomic research. They will be assigned pharmaceutical economics and general health policy, and taught methods of economic assessment, health services research design, and statistical analyses.

 

During the first few months of the program, the fellow will choose an individual academic advisor to work with them to design an individualized program to meet their goals. They will meet with their advisor on a regular basis to review progress, discuss work, review and assign current research articles. In addition, they will participate in a research seminar designed to provide them with experience in evaluation, critiquing, preparing, and presenting scholarly research during each quarter of the first year, and will be expected to present a report on their independent research once during the first year.

 

The fellow will be required to participate in at least one ongoing research project with a member of the faculty and are encouraged to develop, under the supervision of the faculty mentor, at least one research proposal on a Bayer compound to be submitted to Bayer for approval. Research proposals shall be implemented while fellows are at Fred Hutch but may continue into the second year of the program. Research will be managed by the fellow under the supervision of Fred Hutch faculty and Bayer researchers.

 

During the second year of training the fellow will be part of Bayer’s US Health Economics and Outcome Research team and will conduct an approved pharmacoeconomic study in the therapeutic area of oncology. This part of the program is designed to allow fellows to learn about the role of pharmacoeconomic research in the drug development and evaluation process within the industry setting. The research may be on an existing or experimental oncology product, a therapeutic class of oncology drugs, or an oncology disease state of interest to Bayer.

 

In addition to completing their individual research project(s), the fellow will participate in ongoing pharmacoeconomic evaluations or other projects assigned by their Bayer preceptor. They will have the opportunity to interact with departments involved in clinical research, commercial development, and regulatory affairs at Bayer to learn how economic analyses are used by the pharmaceutical industry, and will also learn how Bayer uses clinical, epidemiologic and pharmacoeconomic data to support the utilization of its products. The fellow will be expected to present the results of any individual research projects to Fred Hutch faculty, graduate students, and other post-doctoral fellows as well as to their colleagues at Bayer.

Qualifications

Eligible candidates will have a medical degree and/or doctoral level degree in economics, health economics, medicine, pharmacy, epidemiology or related subjects. For those holding the MD or PharmD degree, completion of a clinical residency or equivalent experience is encouraged.
