Who we are. . .

Pearl Health is restoring the independence and joy of practicing medicine for doctors in the United States. Our healthcare system has burdened our doctors with too much process, while removing them from what they do best: caring for those we love most. We are a team of physicians (Groups), technologists (Athena, Hudson River Trading) and health plan leaders (Oscar, Clover, Centivo) who believe that primary care providers (PCPs) are the key to the United States’ future health. Pearl recently announced a strategic partnership to proliferate value-based care with Walgreens, one of the largest healthcare companies in the country. Our investors include Andreessen Horowitz, Viking Global Investors, AlleyCorp, and SV Angel.

Pearl Health helps PCPs who are overwhelmed by the demands of an aging population and the unpredictable business model inherent to Traditional Medicare. Over time, this solution will empower PCPs to provide better care to their entire patient population. We believe there is a need to bring humanism back to healthcare by giving physicians the ability to better allocate their time with patients, increasing their autonomy, creating incentives that are aligned with achieving better outcomes through clinical decision-making powered by actionable intelligence, and making risk more available and more readily optimized through an intelligent marketplace. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) is launching a new value-based care program to disrupt Traditional Medicare, and we believe that this represents an opportunity to achieve the meaningful change we envision.

The role. . .

We are seeking a sharp Senior Manager, Network Development who is eager to help us grow our network development team in a startup environment. Our Network Development Leads are responsible for the expansion of our provider network, focused on converting qualified opportunities into Participating Providers in Medicare’s Direct Contracting program. As you come up to speed, you will own the development of relationships with Primary Care Physicians across an entire region of the US, educating them and their office staff on the benefits of value-based care broadly, the Direct Contracting program specifically, and how Pearl can help them succeed in stabilizing their revenue and participating in the value they create by effectively managing their patient panel.

This position requires the ability to make cold outreach to provider practices, concisely communicate with providers & their offices, and walk them through sophisticated performance analyses and nuanced regulatory questions. You will exceed baseline performance metrics, understand the local dynamics of your assigned markets, and stay thoroughly informed on healthcare industry trends. A familiarity, passion, and willingness to dig into the possibilities offered by value-based care programs would make you an ideal candidate.

To be successful in this role you will:

  • Engage a market of prospective providers across communication channels (e.g. phone calls, email, fax, and other targeted campaigns).
  • Coordinate meetings with key stakeholders and prospective providers.
  • Demonstrate aptitude for relationship building and creating an exceptional experience for our providers.
  • Design and improve the communication modules, outreach mechanisms, and rewards that further engagement with our provider partners.
  • Identify local and market-specific insights and willingness to travel to assigned geographies for live prospecting.
  • Attend networking events, community events and conferences to generate partners.
  • Perform calculations and leverage analytics to provide prospects and existing partners with forecasted performance metrics.
  • Use database, CRM, or other software to meticulously track progress with opportunities as you manage your markets.
  • Work across the organization to ensure successful implementation of critical projects.

Who you are. . .

  • 4+ years of experience in network contracting and development, or other relevant provider practice-facing field. Experience at an ACO is a plus.
  • Excellent communication, interpersonal and presentation skills
  • You are relentless but patient. You are constantly hunting for prospects but also understand that the contracting cycle requires lots of touches with potential partners.
  • A passion for improving and optimizing relationships
  • Excited about helping physicians
  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent work experience
