Implementation Analyst Intermediate- Via Oncology

Description

Overview:
 
Via Oncology (http://www.viaoncology.com/) is a healthcare software and clinical decision support company with three key offerings:  decision support software, clinical expertise, and data analytics.  This toolset, called clinical pathways, helps physicians and their staff consider the best evidence based medicine when making decisions for the patients with cancer under their care. 
Via was started in 2009 through an investment from UPMC to commercialize these physician-led clinical pathways.  Today, Via still has very much of its start-up culture and passion and employees draw their energy from each other and the very real mission of improving the outcomes of cancer patients.  Employees are able to engage with practicing oncologists throughout the Via Network in a variety of ways which allows every staff to learn as much as possible about cancer and its treatment.
 
Via’s offices are next to the Strip District with a beautiful penthouse view of the river and north side.  We believe that staff are at their best when they can be creative and be themselves.  This view is reflected in our focused, but laid back office style which highlights comfortable attire, flexible hours, and both planned and spontaneous group activities.
