Senior Associate, Health and Human Services

About the Job

Our Health and Human Services practice creates the conditions to improve health equity. We cultivate robust business partnerships between healthcare companies and community-based service organizations to develop and finance Social Determinant of Health (SDoH) solutions that improve health outcomes, reduce health disparities, and lower costs at scale. We collaborate with organizations (e.g., Medicaid Managed Care, health systems, governments, and social enterprises) that bear financial risk for individuals and populations by supporting them in their transition to value-based purchasing and helping to accelerate impact through innovative financing.
The Senior Associate role includes:

  • Prospect due diligence: Analyzing business operations, target markets, track record, growth strategy, and other areas before determining whether to work with a prospect.
  • Feasibility assessment: Ensuring service provider and payor readiness to participate in value-based payment arrangements (potentially inclusive of outcomes-based financing)
  • Regulatory and compliance analysis: For government-sponsored healthcare work, ensuring that financial transactions are fully compliant with State and, in some cases, Federal regulations.
  • Project management: Capacity to advance multiple stakeholders through our methodology while anticipating and being attentive / responsive to evolving conditions and concerns.
  • Value-based contracting: Developing and managing execution of innovative contractual relationships (including governing terms, reimbursement rates and structures, reporting, and contract structure) along the value-based care continuum between both traditional (health plan and delivery system) and non-traditional health care stakeholders.
  • Outcomes measurement: Ability to identify, define and align with stakeholders on outcome measures that will drive financing; includes selection of the most appropriate data, methods, and timing for their assessment in the transaction.
  • Financial modeling and outcomes pricing: Development of cost models and budgets required for project success, assignment of pricing for projected outcomes, and projections of outcomes effect sizes and associated cost savings.
  • Post-project launch management: Ensure ongoing project success through active monitoring of partnerships and performance.

The work of the Quantified Ventures Health and Human Services team is focused on developing and financing solutions that improve the health and wellbeing of all people, especially underserved communities. Strong equity skills and analysis are essential to our work, as is the diversity of our team—across race, gender, class, sexual orientation, and physical ability.
