Job Title: Analytics Intern-Data Science – Mount Sinai Health Partners


Mount Sinai is one of the largest non-profit health systems in the U.S. with a strong reputation for quality of care and research/education. Our health system has over 38,000 employees working together to provide billions of dollars in high-quality care for millions of patients each year.

We are accelerating a transition to a business model focused on population health management – our goal is to keep entire communities healthy and out of the hospital.  Mount Sinai Health Partners (MSHP), the population health division of the Mount Sinai Health System and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, located in the New York Metropolitan area and ranked 5th in Fast Company’s “Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Big Data” is the team driving this transformation within Mount Sinai.  The team includes 400+ employees with clinical, contracting, finance, IT, analytics, operations, and product development expertise. 

Mount Sinai Health Partners is realizing this new objective in two ways.  First, we engage in value-based contracts with health plans.  Using analytical insights, we deploy our clinical programs to improve the health of attributed populations and maximize customer value. Second, we have created a team to assemble our clinical and population health assets into product offerings (e.g., care bundles, worksite health centers, insurance products in partnership with health plans), and sell them to individuals and employers via multiple channels.

MSHP is a fast growing business unit within Mount Sinai and is looking for team members who:

  • Are comfortable “playing up” and “playing down” as needed to accomplish business objectives
  • Work productively amidst ambiguity
  • Thrive in fast-paced  work environments
  • Seek to improve the status quo 

Within MSHP, the Analytics (Actuarial Informatics) team is a thoughtful and diverse group of data science analysts that have important functional roles throughout our business. Using analytical insights, we partner with our Value Based Care Contracting team to understand what is driving our contract performance and identify areas of opportunity to improve population health management. The team blends past experiences from health plans, health systems and public health roles with cutting edge data analytics and machine learning capabilities to deliver exceptional and unique value to our broader business. The frontier ahead includes exciting new tools and data science projects along with transformational business initiatives in a supportive environment and continuous learning culture.
