Job Description

Seva Foundation

any Metro, or Principal City of India

1. POSITION(S) VACANT: Data Analyst (Part-time), Seva Foundation, any Metro, or Principal City of India

 

2. ORGANIZATION BACKGROUND:

 

Seva Foundation (Seva) is a global nonprofit eye care organization that transforms lives by restoring sight and preventing blindness. Since 1978, Seva has provided sight-saving surgeries, eyeglasses, medicine, and other eye care services to more than 40 million people in underserved communities around the world.

 

Globally, at least 2.2 billion people have a vision impairment, and of these, at least 1 billion people have a vision impairment that could have been prevented or is yet to be addressed. Seva’s programs have been instrumental in making eye care available to those who can't afford it. They are driven by four pillars - establishing self-sustaining vision centers, eye care for kids, bringing the best in technology, and training and job creation. Seva believes that restoring sight is one of the most cost-effective ways to relieve suffering and reduce poverty. When a blind person gets her/ his sight back, s/he can go back to work, earn, and support her/ his family. In more than 20 countries, Seva has helped nearly 5 million people who were blind to regain their sight.

 

Seva works with more than 100 eye hospitals around the world to strengthen their capacity to provide quality, comprehensive eye care services. To monitor their performance, Seva’s partner hospitals regularly collect data on metrics such as patients seen, surgeries advised and performed, surgical outcomes, glasses advised and performed, and income and expenses. Seva’s partners submit this quantitative data to Seva every quarter via an excel reporting template. After reviewing the data, Seva cleans and ingests it into a SQL database integrated with Seva’s Power BI dashboards. Partners, in turn, can use these dashboards to monitor and manage their hospital’s performance.
