What You'll Do

You will deliver top notch, subscription based analytic services to some of our most important clients, working hand-in-and with our Episodes of Care, Population Health, and Healthcare Data Management domains.

These services range from static healthcare performance reports used to enhance physician performance to web-accessible dynamic reports. You will be a part of the team that produce the analytics using our proprietary big data and analytic platform; you will be trained on this platform and it will become a core element in your toolkit.

In addition to mastering the platform, you will become fluent with the upstream data model and content, as well as the downstream visualization tools, both of which are critical in producing quality outputs. You will be part of a team that will look to drive improvements through automation/optimization of the processes to gain efficiencies and enable faster transition to the steady state, and you'll be accountable for the client engagements for which these solutions are delivered. This will require skills in project management and client communication as you participate in problem solving sessions with clients and consultants.

Additionally, you'll support clients in their use of the solutions to sustainably drive high impact. This involves engaging with client sponsors on a regular basis to discuss about how to drive user adoption, help them with questions they might have regarding the Solution usage or applicability, etc. You'll also work with client representatives and McKinsey consultants in joint problem solving sessions and drive the process of converting/enriching raw client data sources into the high added value datamart required for Solutions to deliver the insights related to the business challenges at stake. You will have the opportunity to master the analytics/methodology embedded in the Solutions and as well as the data concepts related to the Solution functional or sector domains and you'll develop a deep understanding of the domain/function (across pricing, promotions, trade architecture and assortment) and how they are implemented in an organisation.
