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. In pursuit of these goals, the COBA team is seeking to hire a Senior Data Analyst to support the growing analytics capability of Quality & Patient Safety (QPS) Department at DFCI. DFCI’s Quality & Patient Safety (QPS) Department relies heavily on data to generate reports to internal committees and external regulatory bodies, measure the success of institution-wide quality improvement initiatives, and produce quality and safety-related insights. The QPS Senior Data Analyst (SDA) will support the aforementioned data needs of the department and the Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) plan. DFCI’s QAPI plan defines expectations for use of objective measures to monitor and improve the quality of services provided to DFCI patients. These measures are calculated from a multitude of sources and reported on a quarterly basis. The SDA will work with various stakeholders to understand these data sources and work to streamline DFCI’s QAPI metrics into an automated online dashboard.
The QPS SDA must develop an in-depth understanding of DFCI’s wide range of data sources and data structures as well as the ability to translate quality and safety-related business specifications into data models that enable reporting and new insights. In addition, the QPS SDA must have excellent communication skills and ability to engage and educate the analytic community on how to leverage the variety of data sources. The QPS SDA will be expected to work in a team as well as independently within a fast-paced environment, work on several different projects/tasks concurrently and serve as a data advisor to projects related to quality and patient safety. Assignments will include data engineering, validation, documentation and management. The QPS SDA will work with a variety of tools (ex: SQL, Tableau, Excel, etc.) to access data, write queries, develop programming logic, run reports, manipulate, and analyze large datasets to meet the needs of the QPS Department. The Mission, Vision, and Core Values of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute are incorporated into all areas of practice.
