About the Job

About the Position
Our health and human services team works with for-profit and nonprofit service providers, Medicare and Medicaid health plans, risk-bearing health systems, large employers, and governments to design and execute outcomes-based financing transaction, involving:

  • Prospect due diligence: Analyzing business operations, target markets, working experience, growth strategy, and other areas before determining whether to work with a prospect.
  • Feasibility assessments: Ensuring service provider and payor readiness to participate in outcomes-based contracts.
  • Regulatory and compliance analysis: In the government-sponsored healthcare space, ensuring that financial transactions are fully compliant with State and, in some cases, Federal regulations is vital in mitigating investor and project risk.
  • Project management and contract / transaction structuring: Moving multiple stakeholders through our methodology while being attentive, responsive, and flexible to their individual needs is a requirement to efficiently structure a transaction.
  • Evaluation design: We help determine, with stakeholders, the desired level of rigor to evaluate the effectiveness of the project. Managing the independent evaluation designer to project timeline and expectations is expected.
  • Financial modeling and outcomes pricing: We develop the budgets required to enable scale and project success, and then layer on projected outcomes, timelines, outcomes effect sizes, and projected cost savings, leveraging payor historical data to establish baselines.
  • Capital raising: We help our clients develop growth plans, prioritize and reach out to potential investors, and advise on term negotiations with the goal of raising the required capital to scale interventions and social impact.
  • Post-project launch management: Once the capital is secured, the project begins. While much of Quantified Ventures’ work is related to structuring investable projects, there is a large role that we play in ensuring the ongoing success of the project by managing the contract and evaluation model, while knowing when to adjust course to maximize the likelihood of achieving outcomes.
