  • Educate Heal’s Patient Support and Provider Operations teams on internal policies and protocols and other best practices relating to coordinating patient care.
  • Work cross functionally with Heal Doctors’ clinical teams and Heal’s technology team to design practices and processes that incorporate Heal technology and assist in proactive, medically appropriate follow-up with high-risk patients.

Requirements:

  • Bachelor’s or equivalent degree.
  • Minimum of 1 year of professional experience in or close to case management.
  • Exhibit a knowledge and understanding of HEDIS and STAR quality measures and ratings.
  • Knowledge of community resources in applicable geographic areas.

About Heal

About Our mission We want to be your family’s first choice for healthcare. 
When you’re sick or when you’re well, Heal was created to make it easy and affordable to see a great doctor on your schedule. Dr. Renee Dua Founder & Chief Medical Officer Founding story Heal's founding story Dr. Renee Dua had the idea for Heal after a scary experience with her then seven-month old son in late 2014. Dr. Dua and her husband Nick Desai took their son to the pediatrician because of a rash. The pediatrician told them to rush him to the emergency room right away. After waiting over eight hours, they finally saw a doctor who told them that their little boy would be just fine. The rash that they’d originally been so worried about had cleared up. It was midnight and they were all exhausted driving home, when Dr. Dua said “There’s got to be a better way. Why can’t a doctor come to my home and see my family where we’re most comfortable?” From there, Heal was born. Her husband Nick, a serial technology entrepreneur, got to work building the first version of the app. Together, they connected with angel investors who helped get Heal off the ground. The doctors on Heal saw their first patient in February 2015 on the west side of Los Angeles, not far from Dr. Dua and Nick’s home in the Pacific Palisades. They’re proud of the incredible team of doctors, investors, employees and partners that make up the Heal family. The team is working hard every day to bring Heal to millions more families all over the country.
