Associate Consultant/Consultant (Payer Analytics) – Boutique Data Analytics Consultancy Firm

Los Angeles, California

Associate Consultant or Consultant (Payer Analytics) for Boutique Data Analytics Consultancy Firm

My client is a small boutique analytics consultancy firm that partners with its clients to deliver analytics solutions tailored to each client’s unique business needs.  With newer data sources constantly emerging, organizations need to find ways to weed through a lot more to identify meaningful insights.  More data does not automatically lead to better decision making.  QUALITY of the data and the organization’s ability to gather insights from the data are far more important than the QUANTITY of the data.  Their analytical framework seeks to create a holistic view of the customer that helps them connect the dots to create actionable insights.

Their focus is to provide customized solutions based on deep analysis of all available data combined with the strong understanding of the business drivers.  While insights drive decisions, it is equally important to acknowledge that the success of the decision depends on the execution.

This company provides organizations the ability to create analytics using advanced analytical techniques and also leverage technology to develop customized solutions to execute those decisions.
