Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering at Purdue is creating new ways to combine big data analytics, statistical process improvement, and the science of behavior change to improve decision-making and outcomes in healthcare. Our current efforts are focused on the deep integration of six sigma process improvement and data science to create a methodology, analytics platform, training program, online community of practice and consulting service to help clients develop internal capability needed to create and deploy clinical, operational and financial improvements. We are seeking a seasoned entrepreneurial leader to successfully build and grow this new service line.

Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering at Purdue is seeking a technical/process leader for a new project, in partnership with Purdue Healthcare Advisors (PHA), focused on leveraging data/analytics in healthcare decision making and deploying advanced analytics real time into processes and key decision points.

These projects are funded through the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA), having total funding of $8M over 2 years. This complex position will create a brand new certification track for individuals seeking to deploy advanced analytical and data science models in real-time healthcare settings, combining process redesign and analytic modeling, improving patient outcomes and quality while most effectively utilizing resources. As the opioids and long term care projects are delivered, we envision a new service line launching that will certify and credential healthcare workers to build, deploy, and implement analytical models.
