As an Advisory Services Consultant, you'll provide people, process and technology consulting services to strengthen and improve health care operations that result in stronger financial returns and a healthier health care system.

You'll enjoy the flexibility to telecommute* from anywhere within the U.S. as you take on some tough challenges.

  • Identify and document business process re-engineering opportunities including current and future state process flows 
  • Define, develop and document business requirements to ensure clients' needs are captured and delivered (e.g. use case-based Business Requirements Documents with evidence demonstrating competence writing unique, code-able, testable business requirements; user stories Requirements Traceability Matrix 
  • Work closely with Developers, Quality Assurance Analysts, Architects, Business Partners and other Technology teams to ensure requirements and design are completely understood
