Database Programmer

The Military & Health Research Foundation (MHRF) is seeking a Database Programmer to manage patient data, develop software and implementation processes, generate validation routines and communicate with internal and external stakeholders. The Database Programmer will construct and maintain a SQL database which maps to other existing healthcare databases. The programmer will also create a program that supports the recording and replay of patient treatment and outcomes. The management of these databases will require modifying software to fix errors or upgrade interfaces to remain compatible with the existing suite of software.

Work will be performed with our partner, the University of Maryland R Adams Shock Trauma Center which is a pre-eminent institution for the study and care of traumatically injured patients who require complex care and expertise in critical resuscitation. The programmer shall be involved in system testing and validation procedures and working with internal customers on technical issues including software system design and maintenance.

This effort will be broken up into three main tasks. The first task will require the deployment of an existing telemonitoring system for use with COVID-19 patients during critical care air transport. The second task will be the development of a workflow analysis system to track personnel, equipment, and supplied during a trauma resuscitation. This workflow analysis will be paired with a comprehensive database of patient information to include clinical data, vital signs, medications, treatments performed and patient outcomes. The third task will require the evaluation of existing mobile application for the diagnosis and detection of traumatic brain injury.
