Epic Business Analyst III - Willow
Harris Health is a nationally recognized health system comprising three teaching hospitals and an extensive network of ambulatory care centers serving the people of Harris County, Texas, since 1966. Staffed by the faculty, fellows and residents from two nationally ranked medical schools, Baylor College of Medicine and The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth), Harris Health is the first healthcare system in Houston to receive the prestigious National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) designation for its network of patient-centered medical homes.
Each year, Harris Health provides more than 1.8 million total outpatient visits through its more than 40 ambulatory care facilities. Additionally, Harris Health sees more than 177,000 emergency visits at its Level 1 and Level 3 trauma centers and 35,000 hospital admissions through its three hospitals: Ben Taub, LBJ and Quentin Mease.
Established by voter referendum to enhance the level of charity care available in the community, Harris Health System has often received national recognition for serving those in need and for its achievements in operational excellence, such as being named to the 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 Most Wired Hospitals lists by the American Hospital Association’s Hospitals & Health Networks magazine.
Additionally, Harris Health System is pleased that each of its three hospitals — Ben Taub, Lyndon B. Johnson and Quentin Mease — achieved Pathway to Excellence™ designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

MORE ABOUT THIS POSITION
This is a new position that will join our Harris Health System Community Connect project team to help roll out our Epic system to a local, non-Harris Health System healthcare partner. This will not be your run-of-the-mill, family practice implementation as our partner has some very unique workflows and functionality. We are looking for a self-motivated and experienced analyst to assist with development, go-live, and long-term optimization and support. If you enjoy a creative, out of the box problem-solving that combines technical, workflow, and relationship management skills – and keeps you on your toes – we have the perfect job for you!
The Business Analyst on this project will work directly with customers to capture current state workflows, produce process and gap analyses, map future-state workflows, and conduct needs assessments. Will be responsible for all aspects of Epic business build, testing, validation, go-live readiness, implementation and post implementation support.
While your self-motivation is a plus, most important is your ability to collaborate effectively with customers and a multi-disciplinary group of teammates including billing, HIM, lab, imaging, interface, technical, ambulatory, and inpatient clinical analysts. (Please note: Due to the high degree of collaboration and team integration required, working remotely during the project phase of this position will not be possible, but maybe later!)
