Sr Business Analyst

The Senior Business Analyst is within the Health Care Analytics Team. The Health Care Analytics Team, as part of Finance, is responsible for the management of medium to large projects, client relationship management and senior business level analysis.  Senior Analyst will have strong analytical skills, facilitation skills, project management skills, communication skills, and high customer service orientation.  A Senior Analyst may have specific industry knowledge and experience.  This position will report to the Manager of ACO Analytics.  On major projects, this position might be accountable to the Director of ACO Analytics or Fairview Senior Management.


The Senior Business Analyst is responsible for developing statistical and financial reporting and analysis based on both internal and external data sources designed to help reduce the total cost of care.  The Senior Analyst extracts and validates data from various information sources while identifying key information and documenting recommendations to assist management in sound business decisions.   This position will be the key forecast analyst for our Total Cost of Care and ACO contracts across the company.


The primary area of responsibility for this particular Senior Analyst position is to help gauge the financial impact of Fairview’s drive toward an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) on the System.  The position will require a high level of coordination with other corporate and operations based finance groups including hospital and clinic operations, finance and operational leadership.  This interaction will be key to identify direct operational metrics, trends and cost/utilization leading indicators used for creating modeling that directly correlates and helps predict our financial performance and forecasts for these contracts.


Expertise in these areas will become increasingly important across all aspects of Fairview as alternate reimbursement models begin to replace traditional reimbursement.  Financial due diligence will be essential as non-volume based reimbursement takes on a larger role in our business.  The Senior Analyst has the opportunity to become associated with the ACO project within Fairview as the system undergoes dramatic changes in how it provides and is compensated for care.
