I have dedicated my entire career to health care and as a professional I have frequently and easily shifted the focus of my work across many health care areas from clinical trials, health services research, financing, organization and delivery, planning, operations, quality, epidemiology, social and governmental policy, to program evaluation and reporting.
Below I would like to briefly summarize my experience in key areas I believe you seek in your ideal candidate.
Health Care Experience
Over much of my 18-year career, I have designed, conducted, analyzed, or reported many medical research, health policy, strategy, or program evaluation initiatives. Many times, I have disseminated many of the resulting data-driven program proposals or reports at research conferences, in publications, to providers, or to senior health care administration. In both my research work and health care administration experience, I have worked with providers across the continuum of care, in emergency, inpatient, and (most frequently) outpatient care delivery settings. I have personally had thousands of interactions with patients and their caregivers as a researcher, taking vitals, conducting assessments and interviews, processing blood samples, designing and implementing experimental treatment workflows. I also simultaneously handled project and financial administration responsibilities for nearly all research studies.
Research / Program Evaluation / Analytics
I have developed an ability to quickly understand a topic and think about appropriate analytics, be they organizational, operational, financial, or clinical outcome related. I also have a broad quantitative health care research and administration portfolio (financial modeling, services and pharmacy supply and demand forecasts, regression and several other statistical measures). I have prior qualitative research and analysis experience designing, conducting, and/or analyzing/summarizing focus groups in research and health care management settings. I have also performed market analyses with respect to epidemiologic health burden, utilization, and social factors with impact on health.
I have always designed communications that consider the audience first and why they should have interest in what I am saying. Next, I concisely communicate issues, findings, or recommendations. Finally, if appropriate, suggest what may come next or what possible options for improvement may exist.
