Hey there @Brain1 I understand this is an onsite position, as its necessary to work closely with the staff of researchers and doctors, however I was wondering if Dignity Health ever works with external partners on projects that might allow for a remote team to assist with. We have vast experience working with large health systems, so I’m keen to chat more with you about your work. Cheers!
