A clinical applications analyst is a person responsible for ensuring the effective implementation and use of healthcare IT systems. The applications they review include electronic health record (EHR) systems and other software used in patient care.
The clinical applications analyst works closely with healthcare providers, IT staff, and management in an effort to better understand an organization’s processes and workflows. They then use this knowledge to ensure that medical applications are functioning optimally.
The Responsibilities of a Clinical Applications Analyst
A clinical applications analyst’s responsibilities include the following:
The Tech Skillset of a Clinical Applications Analyst
At a high level, the role of a clinical applications analyst is similar to that of a project manager. Both positions spend significant time researching solutions and developing effective implementation plans. However, the analyst is expected to have more of a technology skillset.
This includes familiarity with how the software works on the backend. This knowledge enables the analyst to make recommendations that are possible and feasible. A more tech-oriented analyst may even create custom applications that expand the functionality of the applications.
A Clinical Applications Analyst is often times expected to be the Subject Matter Expert (SME) with the various clinical applications an organization uses to assist with patient care. They often assist with triaging support level 2 and 3 issues.
