Located in Boston and the surrounding communities, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute brings together world renowned clinicians, innovative researchers and dedicated professionals, allies in the common mission of conquering cancer, HIV/AIDS and related diseases. Combining extremely talented people with the best technologies in a genuinely positive environment, we provide compassionate and comprehensive care to patients of all ages; we conduct research that advances treatment; we educate tomorrow's physician/researchers; we reach out to underserved members of our community; and we work with amazing partners, including other Harvard Medical School-affiliated hospitals.
The on-going expansion of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) signals an exciting time for both the institute and the Clinical Operations and Business Analytics (COBA) team. As DFCI continues to grow, the COBA team grows with it, providing cutting edge data analytics, strategic tools and new insights that are revolutionizing cancer diagnosis and treatment, for the benefit of all our patients. The COBA team’s goal is to conduct analyses to provide actionable and impactful information to operational and clinical departments to ensure success across the institution. The team supports reporting and analysis in areas such as operations, quality measurement, trend management, utilization, patient management and outcomes.
The COBA Principal Analyst must develop an in-depth understanding of our data and data structures as well as the ability to translate specifications into programming logic, and create visualizations and reports. The Principal Analyst provides collaborative and innovative analytic support across all divisions and teams of the institute, leveraging big data. The Principal Analyst will be responsible for advanced analytics using large datasets sourcing elements from potentially diverse data sources, implementation of exploratory and predictive analyses, visualization of data, and communication and presentation of results.
In addition, the COBA Principal Analyst must have excellent communication skills and ability to engage and educate the analytic community on how to leverage the variety of data sources. The Principal Analyst will be expected to take the lead on new strategic and complex analytic projects, function independently within a fast-paced environment, work on several different projects/tasks concurrently and serve as a data advisor to COBA team and project teams as new projects or ad hoc reports are collaboratively being developed. Assignments will include complex data analysis projects that can be multi-disciplinary or interdepartmental.
The Principal Analyst will also collaborate with the DFCI EDW team to address data requirements for analytic reporting. The Principal Analyst will work with a variety of tools (ex: SAS, SQL, Excel, Oracle, Tableau etc) to access data, write queries, develop programming logic, run reports, manipulate, and analyze large datasets to meet the needs of institute.
