Strength Through Diversity
Ground breaking science. Advancing medicine. Healing made personal. Job Title: Lead Data Engineer - Mount Sinai Health Partners Summary:
Mount Sinai is one of the largest non-profit health systems in the U.S. with a strong reputation for quality of care (18th ranked academic medical center) and research/education (22nd ranked medical school). Our health system has ~40,000 employees working together to provide billions of dollars in high-quality care for millions of patients each year.
We are accelerating a transition to a business model focused on population health management - our goal is to keep entire communities healthy and out of the hospital. Mount Sinai Health Partners (MSHP) is the team driving this transformation within Mount Sinai. The team includes 400+ employees with clinical, contracting, finance, IT, analytics, operations, and product development expertise.
MSHP is a fast growing business unit within Mount Sinai and is looking for team members who:
• Are comfortable "playing up" and "playing down" as needed to accomplish business objectives
• Work productively amidst ambiguity
• Thrive in fast-paced work environments
• Seek to improve the status quo
Mount Sinai Health Partners is realizing this new objective in two ways. First, we engage in value-based contracts with health plans. Using analytical insights, we deploy our clinical programs to improve the health of attributed populations and maximize customer value. Second, 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. 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. The goal of each product is to increase the value for employers and their employees, mitigating the effects of the affordability crisis.Role Summary
