Organization: Greater Newark Healthcare Coalition
Location: West Orange, NJ, United States
Eligible Citizenship: All Non-US Citizens
Application Code: US11-Int
Job Function: Database Management / Data Analysis / Statistics, Monitoring and Evaluation / Quality Improvement
Issue Area: Health Systems Strengthening / Healthcare Access


The Greater Newark Healthcare Coalition (GNHCC) began in 2008 as a response to the closure of two Newark hospitals. It provided a conduit for information between hospital CEOs and the New Jersey Commissioner of Health. As the crisis abated, the participants determined that there was value in the continuation of an organization comprising high-level representatives of Newark-area entities concerned with access to high-quality health care­–and in particular, primary health care­–in the greater Newark area. Over time, the organization grew to include high-level representatives of hospitals, primary health care, educational institutions, advocacy organizations, behavioral health organizations, visiting nurse organizations, and others. The New Jersey and Newark health departments are represented ex officio.
The mission of the Greater Newark Health Care Coalition, Inc. is to significantly improve quality and access to health care for people in the communities we serve. Our two primary strategies are: (1) collaborating to develop initiatives specifically aimed at identifying and eliminating disparities and other barriers that lead to poor health outcomes in order to improve health and well-being, and (2) engaging in health policy planning and advocacy through data collection, analysis and dissemination, best practice research, and public education. GNHCC’s focus on health care improvement is construed broadly, and therefore includes substantial focus on improvements in the social factors that affect population health, such as access to healthy food and water, public safety, the promotion of healthy child development, safe housing, and recreational resources.

Position Overview

The Data Analysis, Monitoring and Evaluation Coordinator (DMEC) is responsible for data collection, storage, and analysis. The DMEC will aggregate data from public and institutional sources to create a master database(s) that can be queried and geo-mapped.

The DMEC will keep the database(s) up-to-date and work with partners to collect and integrate incoming datasets. The DMEC will work with the Executive Director, Project Managers, and collaborating institutions to conduct analyses. The DMEC will be encouraged to find creative ways to use quantitative analyses to illuminate trends and patterns in the data, as well as test real-life hypotheses.
This opportunity is ideal for someone who has a passion for health care and social justice, and who is interested in innovative and creative ways to use data to drive transformation in health care. S/he will be excited to learn and develop professionally and will have the opportunity to work with leaders of health care institutions, local and state government, philanthropy, and peers in the field.
