As a senior analyst for Epic descision support Tyler Cluff knows the ins and outs of TMC’s patient data, helping decision-makers improve processes in the delivery of care.

Tyler Cluff has been with TMC for five years as a senior Epic decision support analyst.

What’s that you may ask?

“It’s all about the data, folks!” said Cluff. “We have a tremendous amount of data, and I work to organize it into meaningful information for decision makers across the organization.”

His goal is to work with directors and managers to understand their needs and provide the information they need in as timely, accurate and straight-forward a way as possible.

“With the right information, changes can be made that have a positive effect throughout a patient’s stay,” he said. “Through massive multi-year trends, all the way down to daily metric reports, management has the opportunity to gain insight to improve and maintain our quality of care.”

With an amazingly sophisticated electronic medical record system comes many levels of complexity.

“It can be a challenge to find the right data element in the 12,000 tables available and at times even the most straight-forward terms can be surprisingly difficult,” he said.

“Tyler is committed to continuous innovation and improvement. He excels at establishing effective working relationships and delivers consistent and value-added services to customers, said Falena Reed, manager of Information Systems. “He has an unwavering commitment to quality. He is a true asset to TMC and we are fortunate to have him on our team.”

The best part of working here for Cluff, who was born and raised in Tucson and has a lot of friends and family here, is the impact TMC has on the community.

“It is an honor to work for an organization that does so much of for our community,” he said. “I am always very proud to say that I work for TMC.”
