and automated SQL capture of static reports using ASP and MicroStrategy 7.2.1 web API.  
Environment is Oracle 8i, SQL Server 2000, MicroStrategy 7.2.1, Other tools: ER/win and 
Embarcadero Rapid SQL 7.1.

Business: HCA
Time Frame: June 2000 – Feb 2002
Location: Nashville, TN
Titles: Business Intelligence Analyst, Technical Lead Developer
Duties: Provide business intelligence management reporting development and consulting to 
increase business value returned from the Teradata managed care, supply chain, physician 
charge coding compliance, revenue cycle operations, and patient financial subject areas 
using MicroStrategy, and Microsoft technologies in an n-tier environment for a large 
scale user community (>3,000). Developed several ActiveX components necessary to expose 
Microstrategy's API to support automated managed care contract renegotiation spreadsheet 
emails containing Excel spreadsheets with pertinent past contract performance information 
to be sent to contract managers.  Served as a technical lead and mentor in object-
oriented analysis and development methodologies and project management to other 
developers, project leaders and managers.  Developed and provided entry-level 
Microstrategy training classes for internal developers and business users of the 
product.  Provided database design and schema development necessary to support web-based 
Microstrategy user security self-registration for new users using ASP and MS SQL Server 
7.x toolsets.   

Used data analysis techniques to validate business rules and identify low quality and/or 
missing data in the existing patient financials enterprise data warehouse.  Evaluate the 
impact of low quality and/or missing data on the performance of data warehouse client 
queries, and recommended changes.  Identified design flaws in the data warehouse 
architecture that prevented ODBC data sources from operating correctly, which lead to a 
redesign of many entities and load processes by the data architect and data load team.  

Designed and developed a prototype web application using ASP to augment the data 
warehouse read-only environment with read-write data specifically required for ad-hoc 
reporting and user-defined report modeling.

Designed and developed 50+ SQL Server DTS packages and supporting scheduled jobs 
using “watched directory” model to assist in automating the import of multiple 
datastreams extracted from the corporate mainframe and ftp’d to flat files loaded into a 
SQL Server 7.x 100GB datamart.  Developed 50+ stored procedures to support application 
development, database monitoring and resulting event triggers.  Stored procedures 
included “upsert” (update/insert) support, email notifications of event occurrences and 
scheduled job execution success/fail status updates.  Developed views and managed SQL 
Server user security for a community of 300+ business users that involved translating NT

software.  Performed database backups to disk and assisted other DBA’s in 
interpreting “show plans” to identify and correct performance bottlenecks.

Acted as interim project manager of the federally mandated physicians coding compliance 
reporting project due to departure of the project manager.  Conducted meetings with the 
business owner and subject matter experts to gather management reporting requirements, 
redesign the dimensional data model needed to support the Microstrategy reports, and 
implement the changes and perform unit testing before turn over to subject matter experts 
for quality assurance.  Provided status reports to both IT and business management. Kept 
and published meeting minutes.  Tracked progress as per the project plan, provided what-
if alternatives for resolving discrepancies from plan.  Negotiated with enterprise data 
warehouse architect, data warehouse manager, data load team and management reporting 
manager to obtain resources on the critical path of the project from time to time.

Developed source file data analysis filters / cleaners in perl (and some in standard c) 
for all data sources for the managed care data mart.  These perl applications provided 
the ability to produce data analysis domain statistics, determine the completeness of 
data contained in the mainframe extracts as a pre-requisite to loading, remove 
undesirable or unnecessary data and reformat data as required to conform to the physical 
staging table data structure.  High performance, pre-sorting of data into primary key 
order was accomplished by integrating the ETL applications with a packaged third-party 
sorting utility.

Documented and prepared a presentation of the data sources, flows and processes involved 
in the current 300+ step managed care data mart monthly load processes in preparation to 
move the data mart into a legacy system operational stage since the system is being 
replaced by new enterprise data warehouse development.  Provided knowledge transfer, 
training and support to in-house developers who will be responsible for loading and 
maintaining the managed care data mart until it is replaced by the new MARS system.  
Served as the technical lead for the standard rate template contract modeling project.  
This role included gathering requirements from the business experts, documenting the 
requirements, developing tasks, performing estimates, mentoring developers as all tasks 
are performed and reporting status to the project manager and the business owner.  The 
standard rate template project will be used to negotiate multi-million dollar managed 
care agreements with various major insurance carriers throughout the United States on 
behalf of HCA facilities, divisions and markets.

Performed troubleshooting of Teradata BTEQ scripts and UNIX Korn shell scripts for the 
standard month-end accrual (SMA) application.  This web project uses asynchronous 
updating techniques to improve perceived performance and scalability in the field. 
Multiple simultaneous korn shell scripts and BTEQ scripts perform batch updates of 
thousands of rows of data residing on the Teradata host.  The server side portion of the 
application (a transaction queue) uses multiple daemon processes in combination with many 
korn shell scripts to achieve scalability and performance boosts.  Identified timestamp 
out of sync errors between Teradata nodes (caused by time sync process death) which 
caused absurd timestamp anomalies in the various work queues (i.e. Work was processed 
before it was submitted).  Notified DBA of issue and they restarted the time sync 
processes and added a step to test the time sync processes to their periodic operational
