Health Informatics Specialist

The Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance brings together healthcare, research and academic organisations to address the challenges of incorporating genomic sequencing into the healthcare system. Our vision is for Victoria to be a world leader in the translation and use of clinical genomics in healthcare.

To realise the vision of the Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance, a shared clinical system for genomics, GenoVic is being established to support the integration of genomic medicine into standard clinical care.
GenoVic supports the use of genomic testing, better enabling accredited testing laboratories with a robust common IT platform to perform analysis and variant curation and provided foundations to facilitate controlled access to genomic data that supports secondary use (e.g. research).

As the Health Informatics Specialist, you will provide expertise in health information models, health integration standards, health system operations, and data management to the Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance including the following.

  • develop new and enhance existing architectures, policies, and frameworks to support the secure and effective operation of the Alliance’s GenoVic system
  • leverage your extensive data privacy and security experience to ensure the platform complies with all relevant legislation and data protection best practices
  • engage with Alliance Member Organisations, the Melbourne Genomics Data & Technology Team and third-party software and IT service vendors
  • work closely with and support the Data Governance Lead, who has responsibility for all data governance and data management activities for GenoVic within the Melbourne Genomics program of work.
