The Chemotherapy Order Entry Content Builder/Coordinator (COE Builder) is responsible for managing the development, standardization and prioritization of all Oncology-related content in clinical trials and standard of care for protocol order template development as well as the protocol order validation process across multiple institutions.
The COE Content Builder/Coordinatorâ€™s professional clinical background allows for a comprehensive review of the treatment and industry standards to critically assess for clinical content as outlined in the clinical trial or industry standard treatments. Â A main responsibility of a COE Content Builder/Coordinator is to extract required components from a clinical trial or standard of care treatment to develop a comprehensive profile of orders for investigators/physicians/providers that include criteria to treat, premed/antiemetics, hydration, supportive meds and chemotherapy/meds. The clinical content is prepared for a Beacon application team member who creates the electronic order template in the Epic Beacon Application. Upon completion of the electronic order template, the templates undergo a thorough review/validation process managed by the COE Content Builder/Coordinator in conjunction with a multidisciplinary team consisting of a provider, nursing and pharmacy.
The COE Content Builder/Coordinator will work on a team comprised of nurses and pharmacists and will coordinate daily with members of the DFCI/BWH Pharmacy, Nursing, and Medicine Departments as well as across the Mass General Brigham enterprise. The COE Content Builder/Coordinator will work closely with the Oncology Service Line (OSL) Clinical Consensus Group, OSL Drug Standardization Committee, and business applications in the development, implementation, and support of the adult chemotherapy order entry application known as Beacon.Â Additional collaborations include working closely with the Pharmacy and Nursing Departments, Information Systems, the Clinical Trials disease-based study teams on process standardization and prioritization of protocol treatment related to the Beacon application.
