An Insider's view of Strata Decision Technology

What are some social events your company does?

One of the things I enjoy most about the culture at Strata is the social events - there is always a way to get to know your co-workers on a more personal level. A few of my favorite team events have included dinners, bowling, cooking classes and even meeting and petting a penguin!

Madeline

UI Designer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Our Data Science team is focused on several key initiatives. Currently, we are measuring the financial impact of COVID-19 on our client base and tracking hot spot areas. Our goal is to identify trends and clearly visualize the impact of COVID-19 to help hospital leaders allocate their limited resources and stay financially solvent.

Chris

Data Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My career started as a software engineer; today I have the opportunity to lead the engineering team and make a tremendous impact in healthcare and our community. Strata has provided me with many resources along the way, whether it be new roles, projects or leadership training that have helped me get a broader understanding of the business.

Tushar

VP, Engineering

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I always encourage my team to change their lens in order to strike up creativity. For example, putting on the hat of a nurse manager who just wrapped up their shift and needs to opine on financial performance impacts how we can make that task intuitive, efficient, and valuable.

Alina

Senior Director, Professional Services

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I have the pleasure of working with a multitude of internal Strata teams to support our clients. Throughout the implementation life cycle, Project Managers will work with Sales, Finance, Contracts, Product Management, Technical Consulting, Experience Management and Training teams to ensure projects are delivered on time and under budget.
