1) find out more information about the system...and how they use it for that specific activity or function.
2) Thus ye will have a bit of background about how they use it, hence ye will easily grasp the main purpose why they brought ye on board as the consultant/analyst...they should expand more the problem they are currently experiencing with that system and get more of strong points of that system.
3)Get the end to end view of that use of system...possible they use it to capture application or what ever data....until that is being approaved...in that end to end view ye will be able to see the actual problem they are facing...that is root cause analysis process of investigation.
4)logically come up with solutions if possible ye can bring the technical resource on board. Ta

hopefuly this is helpful

I need advice. My background has been in healthcare claims on the payer side for almost 20 years and I have some healthcare software testing experience.
I have a second job interview for a BA/Configuration Analyst position for a major insurance payer. I am trying to figure out the best way to express how my skill set is relevant to the job. I don't have configuration training but due to my claims/testing background I am very knowledgeable on the business side. I can provide you with more information off board. All advice is appreciated. Thank you kindly in advance.
