Healthcare Data
Hiring Handbook

A complete process to help you add a great analyst to your team

Hiring is the most important thing a manager does. Are you just winging it?

  • Have you ever made a bad hire that cost you 6+ months and $30,000+?
  • Have you ever been seduced by a smooth talker, only to find out they didn’t have the technical skills you were looking for?
  • Have you ever had a team member notice a red flag about a candidate, only to have that red flag ignored when it was time to make the hiring decision?


Imagine extending an offer, knowing you got the right candidate

  • Imagine your new hire taking work off your team’s plate in the first 30 days.
  • Imagine yourself in the interview, asking tough-but-fair questions that top performers answer with ease, but stump smooth talkers.
  • Imagine your team supporting your hiring decision because they felt their voices were included.

I’m Adam Lorton

I’m a management consultant focused on helping healthcare executives solve expensive data problems.

From what I’ve seen, a great analyst can have a bigger impact on your healthcare organization than 99% of physicians.

If you want to upgrade your team with a great analyst, you’re going to need a great recruiting process. I can help with that.

You basically reverse engineered an actuarial recruiting process. Well done!

Why should I buy the Healthcare Data Hiring Handbook? The internet is full of advice about hiring.

When I created this product, my goal was to give you the resources I wish I’d had when I started hiring. Short and sweet, and tailored specifically to hiring healthcare data professionals. 

If you’re normally the DIY type, I’d encourage you to do the math. How much would you have to pay a team member or freelancer just to do the research to get started?


What if I’m not hiring analysts or data scientists? Does this work for hiring other types of professionals?

The behavioral interview questions and email scripts are tailored to analysts and data scientists, but the principles should apply to any hire. No matter what role you’re hiring for, I think you’ll benefit from (a) attracting more top candidates, (b) avoiding painful round 1 interviews, (c) separating the great candidates from the adequate, and (d) making sure your team’s voices are heard in the process.


How do I know if I need this?

If you want to avoid the pain and cost of a bad hire, the Healthcare Data Hiring Handbook is for you. If you’ve ever made a bad hire, you know what I’m talking about: months of frustration, poor performance, and a bill for $30,000+ to top it all off. Most bad hires are preventable, and a better process is your best line of defense. 


How long does it take to implement all this?

The materials in the Healthcare Data Hiring Handbook are designed to be used right away, no alterations needed. If you implement work sample screening (to avoid painful round 1 interviews) you’ll probably save more time than you spend. 

That said, great hiring processes involve key team members. I recommend getting your team involved — teaching them about behavioral interviewing, letting them select interview questions, and having them prepare the candidate comparison. Of course that all takes time, just like anything worth improving would.
