Mount Sinai Careers
Care Navigator-Mount Sinai Health Partners
This role is with one of the largest health systems in the U.S., with a Top 20 ranked academic medical center. We have ~40,000 employees working together each year to provide billions of dollars in high-quality care for millions of patients.
We are accelerating a transition to a business model focused on population health and customer value. This role is in a nimble, fast growing business unit and is looking for team members who:
● Are excited to help deliver healthcare in a customer-centric way, and seek to improve the status quo
● Understand that achieving the best patient experience is delivering on both clinical outcomes and delightful experiences
● Are comfortable navigating through ambiguity -- in your role and on behalf of patients.
● Thrive in fast-paced work environment
Within the health system, we have created a team to assemble our clinical and population health assets into product offerings (e.g., care bundles, worksite health centers, insurance products in partnership with health plans), and sell them to individuals and employers via multiple channels. Our team has the resources of a world class hospital system, and the ethos of an action oriented start-up. We are looking for talented professionals to join this team with experience in strategy, product management, operations, sales and account management.
Each of these new product offerings will have important population health features including: (1) value-based pricing (2) a curated network of high-value physicians (3) optimized care pathways and related programs, and (4) an enhanced patient experience. For worksite health centers, we build primary and urgent care practices at or near the employer’s worksite with a value-based financial model that enables the clinician to spend more time with the patient. For care bundles, we accept a fixed-price for an episode of care provided by a curated network of high-value physicians with new care pathways to ensure holistic and consistent care. For insurance products, we partners with like-minded insurers to wrap a health plan around our clinically-integrated network of physicians, hospitals, and other providers. The goal of each product is to increase the value for employers and their employees, mitigating the effects of the affordability crisis.
