Empassion is a Management Services Organization (MSO) focused on improving the quality of care and costs for a highly neglected “Advanced illness/ end of life” patient population. Four percent of the Medicare population but 25 percent of its costs. The impact is driven deeper with families who are left with minimal options and decreased time with their loved ones. Empassion is enabling increased access and alignment while delivering superior outcomes for patients, their communities, the healthcare system, families, and society.
What your experience will be:
The Data & Analytics team is a rapidly growing, high-impact, high-visibility team that works cross-functionally with the entire organization. We are creating a robust, flexible, and modern analytics platform that is core to delivering the company’s technology and service capabilities. The Senior Data Analyst will report directly to the VP of Data & Analytics, a healthcare data practitioner with a decade of experience in early-stage healthcare startups. You will work alongside other Analytics Engineers, Data Analysts, and Medical Economists building out and maintaining robust data pipelines and analytics solutions to better understand our patient population using a combination of SQL, dbt, and Looker. You will partner closely with our Clinical, Finance, and Operations teams to deliver explanatory and actionable insights as we work to improve the care our patients receive.
How work affects my life:
Competitive compensation with a simple and clear compensation philosophy
Coworkers who are best-in-class clinicians, operators, and technologists
Opportunities to grow your skill set and a preference for internal promotions
A role where you can finish challenging days knowing you’re making a difference working on a truly important problem
At Empassion, you will learn to focus on a later stage of life. You will build an understanding and worth for what the end-of-life experience means. While challenging, it's humbling and centering. Your time will be dedicated to helping people have more good days. This transcends to a more profound value of your present life and how you choose to spend your days
Why you belong here and how you will grow:
This is an opportunity to support the buildout of Empassion’s analytics platform and to be part of a passionate, skilled, and committed team working together to realize our essential vision. We pride ourselves on providing accurate, timely, and actionable data to our downstream users. We hold ourselves to a high standard that respects the impact our data and analytics can have on a patient’s course of care.
The Data & Analytics team is composed of specialists who can flex across different types of work as needed. The Senior Data Analyst will be designing and implementing analytics models, reports, and dashboards to enable and empower Empassion employees and our customers to better understand their patients.
We are a remote company, fully distributed across the United States. We prioritize asynchronous work and communication but are quick to get on a call, Zoom, or even flight if the situation requires higher fidelity discussion. We are dedicated to cultivating relationships built for trust and meaningful experiences that promote your growth. We recognize the value of autonomy, flexibility, and ownership while not losing sight of the importance of real-life experiences. We do not accept anything less than respectful, supportive, and growth-oriented teammates.
