That starts by offering outstanding coverage to our members, compassionate support to our community and comprehensive benefits to our employees. It keeps going by connecting with neighbors to create healthy spaces and places, together.

As a Healthcare Data Analyst Intern, you will have the opportunity to work on building analytics-based solutions that positively impact the health and well-being of our members. You will learn about how health insurance works and will serve as a resource to the Moda team in our efforts to manage health care costs and improve quality. The intern role will have two main components:

Develop customized ad hoc reports to answer a variety of business questions, such as determining the financial impact of certain company initiatives, identifying key medical and dental cost drivers, and reporting on cost and quality performance metrics. Meet with internal customers to brainstorm what kind of information/report is needed for each situation. The ability to think creatively about how to solve a problem or meet a specific business need, given the data available, will be critical.

Provider & population health support. Generate reports and analysis to find opportunities to help our hospitals and physicians deliver high quality care at a reasonable cost. Make presentations to internal & external stakeholders about health care cost and utilization. Success will depend on having the ability to present the data in a compelling way that highlights the opportunities at hand – whether in making comparisons to benchmarks, pointing out anomalies, displaying trends over time, or using other creative analytical tools.
