Data Analyst – CAHPS


A Day in the Life

From managing the data collection process, to customer interfacing, to seeking ways to improve the processes and scalability of our team, there are no boring days for our team members.

You will oversee the CAHPS data quality across a wide variety of healthcare clients using standard guidelines and  methodologies from project onset through delivery of final deliverables. This entails data quality oversight across all phases of project execution, possibly including survey design, data collection, data processing, analysis and reporting. Along the way you will work with internal teams to analyze and investigate data, map data for reporting, and advise implementation and Engineering teams on regulatory requirements for data validation. 

Along with providing client and program updates on data analysis, you will continue to take on new programs which involves learning and understanding regulatory requirements and protocols for data management. Some projects are fundamentally easy and quick, but many others are complex and require creative thought and a dedicated thought process!

As you grow in this role, there will be opportunities to coach and manage other data quality analysts as they begin their careers, including teaching technical, regulatory, and data management skills as well as mentoring on longer term career goals. 

In combination with the core duty of managing research programs, our teams also have the opportunity to work on side projects of their choosing that will help to make the team a better environment, as well as to help it run more efficiently and expand our team’s capabilities. As Qualtrics continues its exponential growth so does the Research Services team, and that means a need for scalable processes, continued innovation on our offer, and constant revisions to the current practices in order to fine tune and better our operations.

Being at Qualtrics during this time of unprecedented growth is already exciting, and being a part of the Research Services team only adds to that level of energy and potential. More leadership is needed and we’re hoping it will be you!
