Meet Tracy Pierce, RHIT - HIM Professional Working in the Analytics Field

Submitted by: Lisa Hershey, RHIA, CHDA, PHIMA 1st Year Director
Tracy is a 2014 graduate of YTI Career Institute’s Health Information Technology Program and is currently working in the Analytics field as a Business Intelligence Analyst. Tracy started this role in October, 2016 with the Business Intelligence Department under the Information Systems Division at Lancaster General Health - Penn Medicine. 
According to Tracy, there are four HIM professionals working in analytics roles in the Business Intelligence Department. The aspects of her HIT education that have served her well in this role are her clinical knowledge (Medical terminology, A&P, and Pharmacology) and her ICD coding knowledge. In order to be successful in her analytics role, she has been learning SQL (Structured Query Language) code writing and obtained specific Epic certifications in Clarity Data Model for Inpatient and Caboodle. She has expanded her database knowledge as well.
Tracy works closely with the Lancaster General ACO (Accountable Care Organization) and Population Health. A data architect has recently been added to their team as they pursue their next challenge which is Incorporating claims data into their system to report data gaps. The data architect will obtain the data and the analysts will find ways to use the data effectively to meet their goals and objectives. The most rewarding part of Tracy’s role as a Business Intelligence Analyst is being able to support clinical staff by providing them accurate data that they can base decisions on to give superior care.
