Data Analysis Intern

Data Analysis Intern


We are looking for an intern to conduct data analysis to help us better understand the sources of cost differential and potential strategies to improve cost and quality. This internship would be paid.

Alaska suffers from the most expensive healthcare in the nation (150% of the national average) and ranks near the top of the nation in terms of health care cost on multiple measures (cost per Medicaid enrollee, premiums, Workers Comp premiums, etc.)

Over the past several years we have created a database of services under our employee and retiree plans. We are looking for an intern to conduct data analysis to help us better understand the sources of cost differential and potential strategies to improve cost and quality.

Our health care system is complex. Alaska’s relatively small population and vast geography presents logistical and economic cost challenges for the provision of services. This internship offers an unusual opportunity to learn and contribute to a critical dialogue currently happening in Alaska. Our hope is that this individual will provide transformational insights to the way we think about and respond to the health care system.

This role will receive direction from and work closely with our senior health care leadership team. It is not required that this person live in Alaska, so we need someone that is able to perform independently and execute and/or oversee all the analytical and technical tasks required to take a project from inception to completion. A thorough understanding of the health insurance industry with proficiency in relational databases, data warehouses, Excel and financial modeling, as well as strong interpersonal skills would be ideal.

To apply contact:
