The Clinical Operations and Business Analytics (COBA) team is part of the strategic initiative at DFCI to enable the transformation of data into insights and actionable information to the different operational, clinical, and business departments across the institute. The team has access to an extraordinary range of healthcare data including medical and pharmacy claims, enrollment, EMR (Epic), scheduling, billing, referral, and laboratory results. Using this data, the team supports reporting and analytics in areas such as patient care, quality and outcomes, operations, and healthcare administration.
The on-going expansion of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) signals an exciting time for both the institute and the COBA team. As the DFCI continues to grow, its need for data analytics tools and insights grows as well. In response to this this growth, and in order to deliver on the greater long-term vision for data analytics at DFCI, the COBA team is looking to expand its capacity. Through this strategic investment in analytics the COBA team will continue to empower its stakeholders via data and analytics addressing key clinical, operations, and business questions, all while building a long-lasting data analytics infrastructure across the institute.
As a result of Dana-Farber’s continued expansion, the COBA team is seeking to hire a Senior Business Analyst to join the Clinical business vertical to help contribute to the long-term vision of data analytics at DFCI. The Senior Business Analyst is tasked with empowering stakeholders and addressing key clinical, operational, and business inquiries through the generation of powerful tools and analytics. Simultaneously the Senior Business Analyst will be charged with building the enduring data analytics infrastructure necessary to provide this same support across the institute. Through partnerships with a variety of stakeholders, the Senior Business Analyst will drive the transformation of business questions into relevant inquiries into DFCI’s data assets, and translating the resulting data into insight and action. The Senior Business Analyst will be a key member of not just COBA, but a thought partner to clinical, operational, and business stakeholders to achieve institutional goals. The Senior Business Analyst will be expected to function independently within a fast-paced environment, work on several different projects/tasks concurrently, and serve as an advisor to both COBA teammates and external project teams as new projects and ad hoc requests are developed.
The Senior Business Analyst- Clinical will work with a variety of tools (e.g. SQL, Excel, Tableau, etc.) to dive into the data, build interactive tools, and own the sources of truth necessary to meet the needs of institute. The Mission, Vision, and Core Values of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute are incorporated into all areas of practice.
