Providence Health & Services Business Analyst, Revenue Cycle Analytics PSJH in Oregon


Providence St. Joseph Health is calling a Business Analyst to work remotely within our footprint states: AK, CA, MT, OR, TX and/or WA.

We are seeking a Business Analyst, RCS Analytics who will support Enterprise Revenue Cycle goals by conducting analytics-oriented projects. The Business Analyst pursues the answering of "why" questions, provides advisory services to stakeholders and assists customers through interpretation of information. A genuine curiosity of data drives the Data Analyst to seek insights, threats and opportunities for Enterprise Revenue Cycle and Finance.

The Business Analyst will practice the key components of the analytics project lifecycle including intake management, requirements gathering, data querying, data manipulation & analysis, validation, effectively communicating findings and documentation. Similarly, the role requires the effective management of concurrent work items, escalating blocks when appropriate and meeting targeted delivery dates. Contributions to overall deliverable integrity will be promoted through Quality Assurance of other Analysts' work. Deliverables will range from small, targeted ad-hoc analyses to large scale projects. The Data Analyst may be expected to serve as an accountable lead on small projects. Assignments may include serving as a representative of the Data & Insights team at meetings, workgroups, etc. For individual, and overall team success the role requires a high degree of interaction with other RC Data & Insights practice areas. Occasionally, opportunities for self-directed research will allow the Business Analyst to pursue new avenues of data exploration. While Revenue Cycle data is the core of most analyses, this role requires the ability to leverage many other data areas (Finance, clinical, etc.) and data types (database, files, non-standard, etc.).

The objective for this role is to provide data analysis and advisory services to Data & Advisory customers. The scope of work may span the entire organization with a strong focus on Revenue Cycle and Finance. A significant portion of the work portfolio involves answering "why questions". Our customers expect our team to help them gain understanding of reports and metrics and specifically, unexplainable behavior in those data. To do this, the Business Analyst will employ analytics techniques to understand the problem, leverage appropriate data, discover causality, and effectively communicate to the customer. Other portfolio efforts include advising stakeholders on potential actions based on analyses and involve assisting customers through interpretive/guidance of D&I products.

At the middle of the range, this role requires knowledge of revenue cycle, healthcare and finance data, and a working knowledge of at least one RC function. The Business Analyst must possess the technical skills to interact with, and draw data from, source systems, data warehouses, etc. The analyst is proficient with reporting software and can easily express visualizations in Tableau or Power BI. At this level, there is an expectation that findings and recommendations can be created in suitable platforms and effectively delivered to audiences at all levels of the organization. All elements of the analytics lifecycle are understood and practiced. Deliverables are appropriately documented and archived for potential recovery/re-use. May be asked to partner with consultants on targeted projects. The Business Analyst cultivates relationships with key business-based resources, customers and stakeholders.

The Business Analyst can describe complex data to non-technical colleagues, and works independently, in an organized, self-directed, efficient manner to deliver multiple competing priorities. The ability to effectively and graphically communicate complex data to both individuals and groups is key.

In this position you will:

  • Fulfill requests to the Analytics and Advisory team by clarifying requirements, drawing data, developing findings, communicating results, and documenting deliverables.

  • Practices the key components of the analytics project lifecycle.

  • Assists customers through interpretation of reports, data, etc.

  • Advises stakeholders on potential action items based on analytics findings.
