If you want to achieve more in your mission of health care, you have to be really smart about the business of health care. Challenge yourself, your peers and our industry by shaping what health care looks like and doing your life's best work.(sm)

Research Senior Analysts work in teams on research studies to surface key challenges or opportunities facing hospitals and provide best (and worst) demonstrated practices in addressing these issues. The unique membership model allows research teams to directly interact with hospital executives, learning from their experiences and influencing change at member hospitals through presentation of key research findings.


Research studies can range anywhere from 1-6 months in duration and typically culminate in a two-day summit where research findings and insights are presented to health care executives. Recent studies have addressed topics such as health care reform, the emergency department capacity crisis, the growing burden of bad debt in hospitals, evaluating the latest clinical technologies, implementing electronic medical records, and other strategic issues facing hospitals. These studies are also published and shared with other hospital leaders via web-based teleconferences. Senior Analysts are actively involved throughout the entire research cycle - from conception, to research interviews, to analysis and creation of presentation materials. Working in teams provides Senior Analysts the opportunity to learn from peers and to take on more challenging responsibilities as they develop in their role.


Senior Analysts are placed on teams based on experience, need, timing, and placement preference. Our research teams focus on best practice business and operations research across the health care spectrum, including programs focused in the provider, payer, and life sciences space.

 

Primary Responsibilities:

Senior Analysts work on at least two research studies per year, with job responsibilities varying according to the stage of the study cycle. Across each research cycle, the analyst will typically be expected to accomplish the following objectives:

  • Collaborate on research agenda setting
  • Conduct in-depth interviews with senior health care executives
  • Document and analyze findings from primary and secondary research
  • Reduce industry challenges to root cause problems
  • Identify and critique best practice strategies and solutions
  • Develop innovative frameworks for presentation of findings
  • Contribute to creation of presentation materials
  • Potentially analyze and build market calculators and financial models
  • Deliver teleconferences on research findings
  • Contribute to research-related publications and deliverables

As Senior Analysts become more experienced, they assume broader responsibilities, including management of member relationships and serving as -in-house experts- on various topics. The analyst position offers significant growth and rapid promotion potential, as well as opportunities to take on other roles within our growing firm.
