System Analyst- Level 3 (Cloud ETL Engineer)

About The Opportunity

  • The Department of Information Resources (DIR) requires the services of one (1) Cloud ETL Engineer hereafter referred to as Worker, who meets the general qualification of Systems Analyst Level 3, and the specifications outlined in this document for Texas Health and Human Services.
  • As the State of Texas rushes to address the many impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become critical to rely on the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) to provide reliable, up to the minute data regarding the current state of infection in the state. As DSHS works to provide this critical data to inform decision makers, health care administrators and citizens, the agency is experiencing serious limitations in the ability to efficiently and reliably provide the data due to a legacy of disparate systems and data that currently resides in numerous locations and databases across the agency. Sharing this vital data across all of these systems is inherently difficult, time-consuming, and requires resource intensive manual and inefficient processes. These cumbersome manual processes have a severe impact on Texas’ ability to respond effectively to the COVID-19 pandemic and prevent the loss of life.
  • The Infectious Disease Data Integration (IDDI) project is intended to improve the efficiency of current processes. An integrated approach to data services will aid in providing the most current data to inform decision makers about the health and readiness statuses of jurisdictions across the state.
  • The Infectious Disease Data Integration project aims to create a data analytics platform plus data governance with Informatica Axon. The IDDI platform will facilitate the sharing, reporting, and analytics of the data collected from the COVID-19 contact tracing in the Texas Health Trace (THT) system, the COVID-19 case management data contained in the National Electronic Disease Surveillance System (NEDSS), and COVID-19 immunization tracking in the ImmTrac system.
