Patient Care Operations Specialist - Job Description

We’re rebuilding healthcare from the ground up and optimizing Patient Care will play a critical role in our success. We’ve experienced tremendous growth in the last few years and we’re looking to bring on someone who can embody our company mission and values with each patient interaction they have.

The heart of Carrum Health is a seamless and highly personalized patient experience; and this is enabled by our Patient Care team.

You will provide peace of mind and be a dedicated guide to patients during the surgical process, allowing them to focus on their health while you handle all the details.

You will also be responsible for supporting the operations of the Patient Care team by working with other teams to improve, optimize, and implement processes, workflows, and technologies. You will leverage your expertise, tech savviness, and skillset to drive improvements that will not only create a better experience for patients but also allow the team and company to better manage the care we provide to patients.

The salary range for this role is $50k - $60k plus bonus, depending on level of experience and geographic location.

You’re excited about this opportunity because you will…

We’re excited about you because…

You have a driving passion for making a positive impact on the healthcare industry and you believe there is a better way to deliver top-quality medical care to patients. You are passionate about helping others and creating systems that allow you and your team to focus less on tedious tasks so that they can focus more on serving our patients. You also thrive in a fast-paced environment and enjoy tackling projects where needed. We hope to see from you:

  • Your experience as a care navigator, care coordinator, or customer services representative (preferred: 1 to 3+ years of experience)
