Job description:

  • Manage and optimize processes for data intake, validation, mining and engineering as well as modeling, visualization and communication deliverables.
  • Examine, interpret and report results of analytical initiatives to stakeholders in leadership, technology, sales, marketing and product teams.

In general the main responsibility of this role is to drive business efficiency by supporting the business rules analysis and Revenue Cycle Management operations by identifying the data trends and building the necessary models to aid the identification and implementation of business, medical, coding or process automation rules through the continuous assessment and analysis of denied claims, review of market practice and denial trends, reference checks against international best practice in terms of clinical pathways and medical coding guidelines, as well as review and maintenance of payer protocols. Thereby increasing operational and overall business efficiency.

The role will be responsible for extracting value from the millions of healthcare records to focus on the following areas of technology driven automation and business rules validation through:

Business Rules:

  • Machine learning to identify opportunities to business develop rules that can either reduce risk of claim rejections or drive revenue optimization
  • Predictive modelling concepts to related historical claims denial trends to define future claims management validation and automation processes
  • Natural Language Processing techniques to identify and predict relationships between medical records and diagnosis and/or procedures performed

Data Analytics:

  • Lead cross-functional projects using advanced data modeling and analysis techniques to discover insights that will guide strategic decisions and uncover optimization opportunities.
  • Build, develop and maintain data models, reporting systems, data automation systems, dashboards and performance metrics support that support key business decisions.
  • Design and build technical processes to address business issues.
  • Oversee the design and delivery of reports and insights that analyze business functions and key operations and performance metrics.
  • Ensure accuracy of data and deliverables of reporting employees with comprehensive policies and processes.
