We are searching for a Program Manager to join the team! This role will initially focus on supporting and scaling our medication adherence program, enhancing existing systems and building improved processes for a strong operational foundation.

  • Shape the Pharmacy Strategy, ACS partnership model, and the way in which ACS/Aledade executes and scales pilots into transformation initiatives available across the Aledade network
  • Use scalable processes and approaches that enable others in the Program Management Office (PMO)

Operations: Lead cross-functional team to define and operate the end-to-end Medication Adherence program. You will lead primarily through influence rather than direct authority, including:

  • Working with and through the practice engagement team to ensure that program developments and operational improvements for new and existing programs are built in a way that complements Aledade practices’ clinical models and ensures uptake
  • Working with performance and practice adoption teams to ensure that the field team is effectively prepared to rollout program to our practices

  • Defining algorithms for patient identification and prioritization with the impact analytics team
  • Ensuring legal compliance and a high ethical standard in partnership with the legal and compliance teams
  • Working closely with the product team to define the patient experience, practice experience, the ACS outreach staff experience, and develop the product that enables that experience
  • Working across stakeholders to develop a proof of concept (i.e., pilot) for any new interventions
  • As relevant, working with external partners to deliver program goals

Execution: Own project management for existing medication adherence workstreams. You will be the leadership’s team key point person representing ACS to the Aledade Performance team and will be expected to:

  • Own the cadence of meetings and deliverables for the ACS stakeholders, including setting priorities and deadlines, and tracking against a broader project plan. Reassess and implement organizational and meetings structure to best coordinate work and deliver results.
  • “Manage up,” flagging when programs face major risks or challenges that need attention, resources, or other mitigation steps. When executive decision-making is required, prepare recommendations and drive towards resolution.
  • Communicate with a broad range of stakeholders on a regular basis, including members of the program team as well as senior management of ACS and Aledade, adapting your voice and content as appropriate for each audience.
  • Become a SME in our ACS Pharmacy Program for the rest of Aledade

  • Ability to build strong relationships and work with individuals at all levels of the organization
  • Experience working with cross-functional teams
  • Highly efficient and independent in managing multiple concurrent diverse tasks and projects
  • Experience managing the structure and day-to-day processes of program workgroups
  • Ability to delegate where appropriate (holding owners accountable, anticipating roadblocks early in the process and working to remove them)
  • Given that we work across different time zones, some non-traditional hours for early or later calls are an expectation of this role.
  • Strong project management discipline
  • Highly organized and detail-oriented in planning and executing tasks
