VP Product Management Quality Measurement

Apervita's Mission

With wasteful healthcare spending in the U.S. estimated at $935 billion, we take our role as a healthcare innovator very seriously. Simply put, we’re on a mission to transform quality measurement and care delivery.

To drive toward a Learning Health System—a framework that drives better outcomes and cost efficiencies across the health ecosystem—the industry has to commit to real change. Apervita is that change. Through our solutions and trusted collaboration platform, we’re committed to making the Learning Health System a reality, making healthcare smarter and ultimately improving patient care.

As we move into our next phase of growth, we’re looking for passionate and fearless professionals to help us pursue our mission. We’ve earned the trust of our investors, including Optum Ventures, Baird Capital, Pritzker Group Venture Capital and Math Venture Partners, to further grow and scale our business. We’ve also been recognized as an industry leader by Gartner, CIOReview, Healthcare Tech Outlook, and Healthcare Informatics. Always in search of the next “first,” Apervita was named the first company to certify electronic clinical quality measures from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) using our proprietary clinical quality language (CQL) ingestion engine. And, we were recently awarded by Healthcare Innovation for our innovative work with The Joint Commission, one of the nation’s largest regulatory organizations.

We believe we’re making a difference every day to drive improvements in quality care that lead to better patient outcomes with a lower cost of care. We’re honored to be on this incredibly important journey to build a better healthcare system. Are you ready to join us?
