Rachael Schacherer


Rachael Schacherer is chief of the Office of Management Analysis and Reporting (OMAR) and special assistant for Hospital Operations.

In this role, she oversees the operational and strategic functions of OMAR, whose mission is to empower hospital consumers to make data-driven management decisions through real-time access to hospital census and industry standard utilization data available through the CC Executive Information System (EIS).  

Her responsibilities include managing all aspects of the EIS, an on-line business intelligence tool, offering a visual display of real-time reporting of key hospital performance indicators; conducting and distributing analysis and reporting on hospital census, activity, cost and patient quality measures; utilizing the EIS to distribute protocol resource utilization reports to institute scientific and clinical directors, identifying research utilization by patient, protocol, branch and institute; and benchmarking Clinical Center services, using industry standard data, with comparable Academic Medical Centers to augment performance management. She also continues to serve as special assistant for hospital operations, supporting the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and CEO of the Clinical Center in analytical and management activities to support the mission of clinical research, patient care and training. Activities include supporting operational reviews of clinical departments, the annual institute planning process, and fiscal year budget development activities.

Prior to her current position, Schacherer was a program auditor for the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO). She participated in a highly competitive leadership development program involving multiple rotations within the GAO, which was supplemented by intensive classroom training focused on leadership, auditing, program and policy analysis, and communication. In this role, she evaluated the effectiveness of federal agencies and programs by designing studies and conducting research through literature reviews and interviews with government agencies and non-governmental experts. Evaluations focused on an organization’s functions across the board in order to effectively analyze its operations.

Schacherer has previously worked at the NIH, before her time at GAO and her current position at NIH.Specifically, she was the program coordinator for Graduate Medical Education at the Office of Intramural Training and Education, Office of the Director. She supported the NIH and Clinical Center's mission to train the next generation of clinician-scientists by coordinating and assisting with training and educational opportunities for students at the high school, college, medical school, residency and fellowship levels.
