Healthcare Business Intelligence Analyst

An experienced BI analyst is absolutely necessary, at least for the initial configuration of healthcare BI software, including self-service tools. This analyst is responsible for tailoring the data models and dashboards to meet the unique needs of a health-related organization.


Business Intelligence Analysts work with company data to identify areas for improvement in current processes. They create and track metrics or KPIs to monitor the performance of the company's products and identify areas where they are falling short. 

The Analyst must possess strong data visualization skills to present their findings in an easily digestible format to stakeholders.

The role of a Business Intelligence Analyst is not limited to just reporting. They help businesses identify what they don't know yet, and uncover answers to questions they didn't even realize they could ask. BI analysts have to ask the right questions before digging into the data to get insights. 

To achieve this, BI specialists use a range of tools, including web analytics tools, database tools, ETL tools, and full-stack BI platforms like Power BI or Tableau.

Requirements often include:

  • Experience in health informatics and healthcare analytics;
  • Ability to analyze data and communicate insights through dashboards, and reports;
  • Strong skills in SQL programming and advanced data manipulation;
  • Experience building data products using business intelligence software;
  • Familiarity with various healthcare data sources, such as claims, electronic health records, and patient-reported data;
  • Detail-oriented with a focus on producing accurate and polished work;
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and oral.

The tailored responsibilities of a BI analyst in a particular company are highly dependent on their specific needs.
