We are seeking a Vice President, Oncology Technology Strategy to join our team in the Woodlands, TX or Irving, TX location.
Here at the US Oncology Network, our mission is to help our community practices deliver the best possible care for the millions of cancer patients they see every year. We do so by providing business and technology services that allow our doctors, nurses, and all of their team members to focus on what they do best: care for their patients.
As the technology team, we play an important role since we are responsible for keeping our practices operational, safe, and prepared for the future, such as for digitalization and consumerism in cancer care or precision medicine and patient engagement innovations.
