Position Profile:

The Ontario Hospital Association (OHA) serves Ontario’s hospitals and is committed to building a better health system for patients and families. Through advocacy, knowledge translation, labour relations and improved access to data and analytics, the OHA is enhancing the services it provides to members. As a committed partner in the health care system, the OHA emphasizes the importance of improving the availability and effective use of data and analytics to support better performance. Within this context, OHA hosts an online platform and suite of data analytics tools for our hospital members. Going forward, we will continue to strengthen our foundation for achieving this vision, through building additional tools to enable impactful, member-facing analytics solutions.

Critical areas in which the OHA supports its members are health human resources (HHR), funding, performance, and various drivers of hospitals’ operational and financial health.  As such, OHA is an active participant in shaping HR management, health system funding policy, changes in delivery models, and other factors affecting the business of health care delivery.  Hospitals’ abilities to successfully manage their HHR depend on timely and accurate analytics-enabled insights and efficiency relative to peers.  Working closely with subject matter experts, the Data Analyst will help enable this work through obtaining, analyzing and interpreting predominantly HHR and compensation data, and working with the Data Analytics team in the creation of reporting solutions that deliver high-value insights to hospitals.

The Position:

Reporting to the Director, Data and Analytics, you will be called on to leverage your experience and strong technical skills in obtaining, analyzing, and interpreting data, in support of OHA’s Data & Analytics strategic priorities. This position works primarily with HHR and hospital compensation data. Through strong knowledge and experience in survey design, data collection, manipulating large data sets, conducting statistical analysis, and communicating results, you will work as part of a team that establishes impactful toolsets that help hospitals answer questions and solve business problems.

Estimated breakdown of responsibilities will include:

·       Data Collection, Analysis, and Reporting Results (65%): In collaboration with cross-functional team members, and with input from relevant working groups or committees, determine data requirements and administer a number of annual and ad hoc data collection instruments. Large amounts of data will be collected from hospitals across the province. Develop scripts for data cleansing, analyze the data, and work with the team to report results via Tableau dashboards on the Data Analytics platform.

·       Communicate Results (10%): Communicate (both oral and written) survey findings with internal and external stakeholders and groups at all levels of the organization. Information may be shared with a range of audiences, including hospitals, government, and health system stakeholders, etc., through a variety of communication mediums.

·       Fulfill Data Requests as Required (10%): Respond to requests for data from internal and external stakeholders. Extract and analyze data, and prepare reports, as appropriate.

·       Client Engagement (10%): Respond to questions from survey respondents and dashboard users. Track queries and follow through to resolution.

·       Support Other Data Analytics Initiatives as Required (5%): Monitor the general shared inbox for site access requests and update the contact database. Collaborate with the Data Analytics team and other stakeholders on unique projects as they emerge. Examples include updating our website, creating a new dashboard or tool, developing predictive models, etc.

The Candidate:

The ideal candidate possesses a Bachelor’s degree in a related field, such as, analytics, or statistics.  Strong analytics and problem-solving skills. Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal. Proficient with Microsoft Office Suite. Capacity to apply discretion and maintain a high level of confidentiality when handling sensitive data.

OHA’s toolsets will only be as successful as their ability to deliver meaningful value and insights to our member hospitals. Therefore, you must have excellent interpersonal, facilitation, written and verbal communication skills as well as strong research and analytical skills and proven project management expertise. Working in a team environment, the Data Analyst will be a highly motivated self-starter who thrives in a fast-paced environment, is able to build successful relationships with a variety of stakeholders, and enjoys working with a team focused on turning data into impactful insights.

Nice to have (non-essential)
