– To artfully apply technical expertise –
Analytic design, quality measurement, and value determination in the healthcare industry are all technical endeavors that require specialized knowledge and skills. Together with knowledge of clinical topics and quality improvement techniques, you use them to identify opportunities to affect change, design interventions to collect knowledge, and explain the meaning of the observed results.
In this field there is a “space” that needs navigating: it is the space between the technical and the practical or real-world clinical situation. You operate in this space when you describe the merits of your project to secure funding and when you impart the implications of your results to inform and connect. Your ability to do these effectively and therefore to affect change will depend on your ability to navigate that space between the technical andthe practical.
“It’s as much an art as a science.”
Recognize that some of the most important things you do occur in this space, and that they require vision, creativity, and yes, even art. Because at the end of the day, your goal is not just to increase that metric or detect a statistically significant difference. Your goal is to discover, affect, and connect.
