Rady Children's Hospital | San Diego, CA

Posted Date 1/15/2024

Do you have healthcare business analyst skills? Do you like challenging clinical and financial analysis? Our Decision Support team could be for you. We love what we do and would like to meet you!

This is not an IT position. In this position you will:

  • Build out hospital contracts
  • Create ad hoc reports
  • Perform both clinical and financial analysis
  • Use data for testing, auditing, and validation
  • Serve as a resource to department managers and facilitate their use of data

Skills needed:

  • Strong Excel and math skills
  • Understanding of database functionality and reporting tools
  • Advanced data analysis and interpretation of trends
  • Good communication at all levels

Any knowledge of a Decision Support system or hospital contracting is advantageous. We are currently doing multiple system optimizations. Prior implementation knowledge in an end user role is helpful, not as a coder, but as a user of the data for testing, audit and/or validation.

This position applies advanced knowledge of clinical and financial analysis and knowledge of systems technology to identify and design solutions within the decision support, research and quality systems. Responsible for the development of Service Line analyses and the monitoring of trends. Works across departments to provide supportive information for various initiatives including productivity, business planning, volume trend analysis, case mix index, reimbursement and costing. Handles the integration and comparison of internal data with various benchmarks (e.g., NACHRI, OSHPD, Thomson Reuters, and PHIS).

This role encompasses all areas of the hospital and provides an opportunity to gain valuable, well-rounded skills. Rady Children's promotes from within and this position can lead to exciting future opportunities!

We allow remote work, with the flexibility to come in on an as-needed basis for any meetings that will not be handled virtually. Those times can be flexible, and any time in the office would be at the Copley Business Center location in Kearny Mesa.
