Paladina Health- Population Health Coordinator

« Back

Position Description

Paladina Health’s Population Health Coordinator plays an integral part in driving our clinical outcomes.  This role functions to support clinical teammates by using risk stratification to conduct proactive outreach to patients, managing referrals, as well as updating clinical records.  This individual will work in a fast-paced environment, collaborating with care teams, regional coordinators, and analytics. They will be joining an innovative team that is passionate about delivering “best in class” service with an emphasis on accuracy, efficiency and patients. 

Company Overview

Paladina Health builds and manages employer-sponsored primary care health clinics around the country.   Launched from scratch in 2011 to create a disruptively better healthcare model, Paladina now has over 50 clinics across 10 states from coast-to-coast.  The company's innovative delivery model is moving beyond the "early adopter" stage and gaining traction across a variety of different customer segments, driving high growth and organizational focus on scaling strategies and capabilities.  Paladina is looking for talented, mission-oriented, entrepreneurial leaders to help drive Paladina's successful expansion.

Although Paladina Health is a wholly owned subsidiary of $11B healthcare services provider DaVita Healthcare Partners, it operates as a relatively independent startup, with sufficient autonomy to grow rapidly and to make decisions that are right for the business.  Because it operates as a startup, teammates must be able to excel in unstructured, entrepreneurial environments and they must be willing to adapt to change quickly.  Every day brings new challenges and obstacles that require innovative and unique solutions.  Paladina Health teammates must be enthusiastic about achieving the end goal of helping "fix healthcare" and they must be willing to help the team succeed as a whole.   Additional information can be found at www.paladinahealth.com.
