Hawthorne Effect, Inc. has an exciting opportunity for experienced and dual certified Adult and Pediatric Cardiac Sonographers to perform in-home echocardiograms across the country and in Puerto Rico as part of a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) Program.

About Hawthorne Effect

Hawthorne Effect makes clinical trials accessible and convenient for everyone. Hawthorne Effect’s solution marries technology and design with a distributed workforce to deliver clinical trials to patients anytime, anywhere. Hawthorne Heroes are multi-specialty professionals such as Physicians, RNs, NPs, sonographers, phlebotomists and more, who are carefully vetted, credentialed, certified, and onboarded in order to conduct our in-home follow-up visits.

About the Hero Cardiac Sonographer - Pediatric

We are currently expanding the Hawthorne Effect offerings to include supporting patient surveillance under the FDA “REMS” (Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy) program. This program is designed to ensure that the benefits of certain medications outweigh the risks by requiring increased safety monitoring while preserving patient access to necessary therapies. Hawthorne Effect sonographers will be providing in-home echos for interested patients/caregivers and transferring images to be read remotely by a member of the Hawthorne Effect Cardiologist Network, a new network within our organization. The resulting echo report will be provided to the patient's prescribing physician to inform continued treatment decisions and to complete necessary FDA forms required by the REMS Program.
