Job Summary

The interplay between chronic disease, daily quality of life, and acute healthcare episodes remains a poorly understood component of overall health trajectories. Recently there has been substantial uptake, both from consumers and patients, of wearable health technology such as wrist-worn devices incorporating multiple sensors. Such technologies can generate large amounts of data in real-time though efficient utilization of these data sources to effect improvement in patient outcomes has been limited. Thus, further investment and study is needed to develop and define wearable health technologies’ health care applications.
The MiPACT study aims to integrate physiologic information from the Apple Watch, electronic health record, laboratory and genomic information, and participant survey data to understand the relationship between biosensor phenotypes and health trajectories. The University of Michigan will recruit several thousand patients from Michigan Medicine to participate in the study and will follow participants for up to three (3) years. Participants will be asked to have labs drawn during enrollment and then to wear an Apple Watch on a daily basis, to measure blood pressure, perform guided breathing tasks, and answer surveys on sleep, stress, diet and cycle information. 

We are actively seeking a highly qualified LPN who will provide compassionate and exceptional customer service to MiPACT participants. Candidates should be enthusiastic and patient-oriented individuals who are interested in creating the ideal experience for study participants and employees. 

NOTE: This is a 1yr term-limited position.

The University of Michigan Hospital is a Magnet recognized hospital and has been named #1 hospital in Michigan and #5 hospital in the nation by 2018-19 US News and World Report!
