Newark, NJ, USA
Posted on Wednesday, September 6, 2023
We were founded in 2014, and since then, we've become the largest network of independent primary care in the country - helping practices, health centers and clinics deliver better care to their patients and thrive in value-based care.
Join Aledade as a Practice Transformation Specialist (PTS) and personally make an impact on patient care. As a PTS you will make frequent visits to your assigned group of practices in order to assist the physicians and staff with practice transformation plans to shift into value-based care.
Being a PTS means you help practices by being a project manager for workflows, clinical calls, and workgroup participation, driving toward outcomes in the practice that improve care and reduce costs. The clinic will depend on the PTS to keep initiatives organized and track goal performance. As a PTS you will partner with your practices to help design, deploy, and train staff on workflows to incorporate the Aledade technology into their daily activities. The mission is to change the landscape of healthcare delivery for that practice.
It is a role that demands a solid foundational understanding of the healthcare delivery system for primary care practices, clinical plus administrative experience, and exceptional change management skills. A successful PTS is passionate about population health, and highly mission oriented around providing better care to patients while reducing costs. At Aledade, a PTS can impact the health of their community by transforming one practice at a time. It is a job for the healthcare professional who wants to make a difference beyond the bedside, office or facility setting.
