How to Strategically Manage Analyst Overload and Master Your Work Queue


By Taylor Smith and Anusha Achukola

As we saw in last week’s blog post, many hospitals and healthcare systems are challenged with having too many analyst needs and too few analysts to complete all the work. As an in-house analyst—working on your own or as a part of a team—you are likely facing a long queue of requests and wishing you could somehow find a better solution to keep up with the demand.

As the amount of data that healthcare organizations collect continues to grow at a rapid rate, the volume of information you and your team will be tasked with analyzing will only continue to grow as well. Without the right tools and workflows, you will continue to struggle to balance it all. 

In last week’s post we outlined a few suggestions for how to overcome the ongoing healthcare analyst shortage. In this post, we’ll address this same issue—but from your perspective.

Specifically, if you are an analyst buried under a pile of reports to be done, we’ve got some practical ways you can update your workflow and manage your work queue—getting more done in less time and with fewer errors.
