As Indonesia continues to scale up the Jaminan Kesehatan Nasional (JKN) scheme towards universal coverage for all Indonesians, Badan Penyelenggara Jaminan Sosial Kesehatan (BPJS-K) and other key Government of Indonesia entities will need to generate evidence to inform policy decisions that can justify continued and increasing government funding and promote the long term financial viability of the scheme. The USAID-funded Health Policy Plus (HP+) project is collaborating with BPJS-K and other partners to provide technical assistance in support of these objectives in 2018.
HP+ is seeking a qualified candidate to conduct robust quantitative analysis of various data obtained from BPJS-K and other entities. S/he will support analyses of the performance of the JKN scheme to date, the impact JKN has had on health outcomes, and model scenarios of likely performance in future. The Data Analyst will be responsible for sourcing, compiling, cleaning, analyzing, and presenting data on the JKN scheme such as beneficiaries, utilization, claims, and health outcomes. Experience working with large data sets and anonymized patient-level utilization and claims data is strongly preferred. A sound understanding of actuarial principles and experience conducting actuarial modelling (in health or other sectors) is an advantage. The selected candidate will work closely with DJSN on a day-to-day basis and liaise and coordinate with a multi-stakeholder team to conduct these analyses. The candidate will also work closely with HP+ staff in country and from headquarters.
