Requirements / Responsibilities:

  • Create, maintain and curate the clinical and health-related content - which are variables and ML Model features used to build predictive models and for health analytics - with a rigorous approach regarding research-backed applications and uses.
  • Translate clinical content needs into technical requirements working with data science, product management, and development teams
  • Accurately calculate features and healthcare measures (HEDIS, Stars, etc.) using python and pandas.
  • Conduct analyses using feature-enriched data and clinical content to create key materials for customers, product, marketing, and sales
  • Contribute to peer-reviewed research, case studies, white papers, and thought leader articles

  • Demonstrated proficiency in programmatic manipulation of data is required; ideally pandas with python, or experience in R, SAS, or STATA and a willingness to learn pandas. Experience with CQL is a differentiator.
  • Demonstrated experience using code sets and taxonomies to craft clinically relevant variables for use in healthcare analysis, epidemiology, and/or HEOR studies.
  • Demonstrated experience analyzing large administrative and clinical datasets (e.g. to QA newly-defined features, highlight key relationships with other data)
  • Strong written and oral communication skills including ability to bridge technical and clinical subject matter disciplines (e.g., ability to present technical topics to lay audiences), and to convey complex information clearly and concisely.
  • Knowledge of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and implementation of FHIR-based applications strongly preferred.
  • Experience working with data scientists and software engineers and creating ways to scale your work
