What employers are saying?

“There are two types of job candidates: those that are experienced with the tools, technology, and ability to analyze data; and those that are more clinically adjusted, know the business, but not how to get the data and curate it into something visual that can be used for analysis. You have to know both.” — Brad Crough, analytics director for Brown Physicians, Inc.
