Major Areas of Responsibility:

This position is considered Key Personnel on the CDC/NIOSH contract to operate the federally funded Data Center (DC) for the Survivor population served by the World Trade Center Health Program (WTCHP).

Responsibilities include:

  • Overall responsibility for DC contract implementation and management
  • Oversee expanded requirements related to data security (FISMA), HHS OIG audits, quality assurance, documentation, and reporting.
  • Responsible for all DC reporting requirements. Oversee production of monthly, semiannual, and annual narrative and data reports.
  • Supervise DC QA Coordinator. Serve as Subject Matter Expert (SME) in the QA/QI activities of the Clinical Center of Excellence (CCE) and play a coordinating role with the Program Deputy Director and the CCE QA Coordinator in assuring consistency and avoiding duplication (when possible) between the CCE and DC activities and reports.
  • Supervise the Data Center Administrator and provide dotted line oversight of all EITS WTC positions, including 1 full‐time and 2 part‐time staff on H+H payroll, as well as 3 full‐time and 3 part‐time IT staff on consultant lines. The EITS staff has expanded under the new contract.
  • Serve as senior intellectual lead and decision maker on the continued development and implementation of the custom designed, web‐based database application that serves as the key operational support data system for the WTC EHC. This application and its SQL database are essential to every day operations of the DC and CCE and the reporting requirements of both contracts. Guide the conceptual approach to further expansion of functions and data elements in the database application.
  • Lead all data‐related aspects of the NIOSH‐mandated transition of CCE member Care Management from use of an external contractor to internal responsibility. This includes the assessment of a wide range of potential care management platforms to determine what product would meet the Program’s needs and the selection of a vendor, through the system configuration and implementation which is currently under way. (See further description below).
  • Work with the WTC EHC Executive Director to provide the necessary supporting information for outreach functions, an activity that has expanded under the new contract based on new relationships with other NIOSH contractors (NYC DOHMH WTC Health Registry; LHI National Provider Network; NYU Responder CCE; LHI William Street Surge Clinic).
  • Assure that new special analytic projects are completed by the DC Analytic Team. These projects include data linkages (with the National Death Index and with 5 state tumor registries) and active surveillance projects on cancer and advanced lung disease. These projects are primarily carried out by clinical staff based between Bellevue and the NYU Langone Medical Center who are funded under the DC contract. Assure that these projects move forward appropriately and that the required data is available for reporting.

  • Review and approval of external claims for services provided to enrolled WTC Survivor members.
  • Collaborate as Subject Matter Expert on internal claims for the three facility sites, which are prepared by CCE staff at Central Office for submission to NIOSH. Because of the highly complex rules of the WTCHP, both these areas require specialized expertise in processes that vary significantly from usual hospital business standard work.
  • Oversee all data‐related aspects of the transition of WTC Survivor Care Management from an outside vendor (HealthSmart) to the WTC EHC. The NYC H+H clinics now provide intensive care management to members with cancer and other complex chronic conditions.
  • Guide configuration and initial implementation of a new software platform called CaseTrakker.
  • Oversee the ongoing implementation of CaseTrakker, including training of the expanded care management staff (from 13 to 26 RNs, SWs, and support staff).
