Imaging Engineer - Biomedical Engineering (Clin IMG IT Spec 4)
At UCSF Health, our mission of innovative patient care, advanced technology and pioneering research is redefining what's possible for the patients we serve – a promise we share with the professionals who make up our team.
Ranked by U.S. News & World Report as the number one hospital in California – and among the top five in the country – UCSF Health is committed to providing the most rewarding work experience while delivering the best care available anywhere. In an environment that allows for continuous learning and opportunities for professional growth, UCSF Health offers the ideal atmosphere in which to best use your skills and talents.
The Clinical Technology Division has the responsibility for managing all diagnostic, therapeutic, and equipment processing technologies used in the delivery of all patient care to all UCSF Health patients. The Division's primary obligation is to ensure this technology is wisely purchased; appropriately configured; performs properly, consistently, safely, is routinely maintained; and is suitably and safely integrated with UCSF's IT and EMR systems currently deployed. To meet this wide¿ranging obligation, the Clinical Technology Division is organized into five functional areas. Each functional area, while discharging its assigned responsibility, works collaboratively within the Division to provide the systemic response to the Division's primary obligations:
Clinical Technologies Administration (CTA) is responsible for: Clinical Technologies' operational structure; the Medical Equipment Management Plan (MEMP), the UCSF Medical Equipment Policy 6.1.0; and the risk based Equipment Classification system; representing the MEMP in UCSF's EOC committee; developing strategic plans to consolidate all technology management; to engage UCSF Health Leadership to acquire the appropriate resources to continually meet the Division's primary obligations; to identify and consolidate operational efficiencies with BCHO and ancillary UCSF Health affiliates; and to develop Clinical Technologies' long term road map for remaining current and relevant in a rapidly changing environment. The CTA will collaboratively work with all Clinical Technology groups to develop and maintain the Clinical Technologies' internal education and on¿line training modules.
Biomedical Engineering Services (BES) fulfills the Inventory, Scheduled and Corrective Maintenance duties of the Clinical Technology Division. The BES is organized into technical shops. A Shop is one or more Technical Specialists working together on the same type of equipment or providing service to a defined area: Peri Op Shop; Critical & Acute Care Shop, Lab¿Dialysis Shop, Medical Imaging Shop, Depot & Field Shop, Mechanical Shop. These shops operate as single functional units across all three major campuses. Each shop within the BES is responsible to develop and maintain Service Level Agreements with their respective customers to clearly define roles, responsibilities, and service delivery plans. The BES will provide both technical and labor support for all projects associated with their respective shops as coordinated by the PMO and the CSES.
Clinical Systems Engineering Services (CSES) meets the Division's obligation at the systems level by meeting the demands created by the Clinical Technology and Information Technology Convergence. To this end, CSES is tasked with centralizing the creation of a clinical technology capital acquisition roadmap to guide our institution in technology selection and device integration. The CSES will effectively interface/integrate clinical technology needs with IT security, infrastructure, processes, and field services functions. The CSES will be the technical support for the BES on a 24 hour basis.
Business¿Analytics¿Compliance Services (BACS) manages the Division's budget and maintains medical center service contracts, the Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS); and monitors fiscal, regulatory compliance and operational performance. In conjunction with the CSES, this group will develop, maintain, and operate the medical technology replacement cycle and its associated capital budget. It will collaboratively work with both the CTA and the BES in developing and maintaining the Division's Education and Training programs.
Program Management Group (PMG) organizes, manages, and reports on status for all the Division's Technology Programs that are generally outside of MEMP compliance scope. Though these activities will vary on a regular basis, they will generally fall under the following categories: Temperature/Humidity/RTLS, Stryker Integration, New Construction Installation Projects, Internal Division Optimization Projects, and other initiatives as assigned by Clinical Technologies Administration.
Under the general direction of the Medical Imaging shop supervisor, the incumbent works as a technical leader performing a variety of routine and broad scope to high complexity level technical tasks associated with the installation, scheduled maintenance, and repair of a diverse range of imaging and clinical equipment (hardware, software, and databases).
The incumbent performs scheduled maintenance on imaging systems using specialized test equipment, assists in the support of a systematic preventative maintenance program of biomedical instrumentation, and documents, the introduction of new therapeutic and diagnostic imaging equipment, corrective and preventive maintenance actions and special requests as required.
The incumbent will provide consultative and collaborative services to Clinical and Technology leaders of the various imaging departments by analyzing changing technical requirements, clinical needs, processes, and procedures for the development of maintenance programs on a variety of imaging systems.
In discharging these responsibilities, the Imaging Engineer must be acutely aware of and adhere to all defined clinical workflows and will make recommendations on said workflows as needed. The incumbent will provide techno/functional assistance to imaging and biomedical technology users.
