Data Scientist

WHAT’S THE REAL TITLE?
Captain of the Data-ship Enterprise


WHAT’S YOUR MOTTO?
“To explore complex new worlds, to seek out new insights and new conclusions, and to boldly go where no data scientist has gone before!”


WHICH LEADER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT?
Senior Director of Analytics


WHY IS THIS ROLE CRITICAL?
Imagine Health's bread-and-butter is identifying the highest quality healthcare providers using piles of data from Medicare, our customers, AHRQ, industry partners, external resources - you name it! We need someone to help us best utilize these disparate sources in a logical, structured, coherent way; there's no role that's closer to Imagine Health's core than this one.


WHAT IS A DAY IN THE LIFE?

You will push the Enterprise as hard and as far as she can handle.  You'll help guide the network contracting team's network build process one day. You'll provide concise, actionable data to help the sales team win over new civilizations (or clients, if you will). There will be the less adventurous aspects as you improve and augment the data infrastructure.  But doing the necessary maintenance is key to holding the ship together.  

Your creativity and technical prowess will be tested.  You will interface with most, if not all, aspects of the company, but at the end of the day it's about the data and analytics. You'll be a vital piece of the Imagine team, but you're a data scientist, not a miracle worker!  Or maybe you are (but we won't hold you to it). 


OK, HOW ABOUT A FEW SPECIFIC RESPONSIBILITIES?

  • Develop statistical tools and models for the interpretation and visualization of healthcare data, including claims, eligibility, and others
  • Provide our network contracting team a clearer perspective on the impact of rate negotiations with our facility and provider partners
  • Evaluate financial risk of our facility and provider contracts using mathematical or statistical methods
  • Become an expert in the way Imagine Health scores, ranks, and analyzes providers across the country
  • Communicate complex mathematical information to non-technical audience, including top company management
  • Contribute productively to the overall development and execution of Imagine Health's healthcare cost containment and quality strategies
