About the role
We are looking for a talented Senior Data Scientist in Statistics to join us in our commitment to improve the quality of care for patients in every community across the nation. It is crucial that you have a Masters or PhD with a thesis and work in application of statistics methodologies. You will develop and apply fundamental statistical theory to collect, organize, interpret, and summarize radiology data, generating usable information to solve a wide range of intelligence and practical problems.
You will work with a growing multidisciplinary team of talented data scientists, other statisticians, engineers, and researchers to leverage unique healthcare data (in the form of MRI images, clinical reports, claims data, and beyond) to create new and improved methods for assessing and predicting the quality of care delivered by healthcare providers and determining the impact that care quality has on overall patient outcomes and cost. You will have the opportunity to work with entirely unique healthcare datasets that cover all phases of care delivery (referral, diagnosis, therapy, and outcome/follow-up) from the perspective of all key stakeholders (patients, providers, payers).
Your responsibilities will also include helping to further create, extend, and validate the statistical models that we use to power our analytics. You will also help to characterize, interpret, and share the results we achieve in our healthcare research studies.Â
