Massachusetts General Hospital has initiated a broad effort to coordinate the multiple data and digital health projects across the institutions in order to support continued digital health growth, improve patient experience and outcomes, streamline operational efficiencies, and enhance data capture and analytics. This involves the implementation of expert developed treatment algorithms, personalized patient profiles, and fundamental workflow redesign to create care plans that are executed remotely through non-licensed Patient Health Navigators supported by licensed personnel. The ultimate intent is to attack disease through prevention with state-of-the-art innovation, collaboration and the desire to do "right" and create a sustainable, long-term healthcare model.
The National Heart Lung and Blood institute from the National institutes of Health (NIH) has funded a research project in this space to develop a framework to stratify patient cohorts for clinical management. The goal of this project is to improve healthcare delivery.
The Analyst will support this project. After his/her initial training, he/she will be embedded with the multi-disciplinary team.
