With wasteful healthcare spending in the U.S. estimated at $935 billion, we take our role as a healthcare innovator very seriously. Simply put, Apervita is on a mission to change the face of healthcare. We intend to do this by continuously improving the value of healthcare delivery through performance, measurements and insights.
Recognized as the trusted source for performance measurement through our proprietary cloud-based rules engine, we address the complexities of an industry transitioning to accountable-based care arrangements. Serving one of the nation’s largest regulatory organizations, more than 1-in-2 U.S. hospitals and several nationally recognized health plans, Apervita conducts more than 10 billion value-based computations annually, providing vital insights that enable collaboration, build trust and advance value-centric care.
As we move into our next phase of growth, we’re looking for smart, 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 in 2020. 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 recently 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. This is a huge step forward in healthcare quality innovation and an indication of where we’re headed. We’re clearly on the cusp of something big and bold and can’t wait to see what happens next.
Are you up to the challenge?
As the Vice President of Business Development - Payers you will have the opportunity to help shape the go-to-market efforts focused on health plans and the associations and groups that serve them. Working closely with the company executive team and the marketing department, you’ll help develop a segmentation and targeting plan, as well as hone the sales positioning to bring our unique platform to market. Leveraging our existing customer base, you’ll help develop a repeatable, sustainable prospecting and sales methodology. You’ll have the chance to be an impactful leader within the company, reporting directly to the Chief Commercial Officer.
By leveraging existing leads and creating your own through “test and learn” prospecting, you’ll lead the organization in its effort to sell directly to payer organizations. You’ll oversee the tactical execution of the sales process, and help bring market feedback into all aspects of the company, from product, to strategy to customer support. For the right candidate, this opportunity could evolve into building and managing a 3–5 person team. This is a unique opportunity to own and drive a meaningful segment of business for one of the country’s leading healthcare IT companies. This is a great opportunity for someone who likes to “get in early and help figure it out.” It’s not a good fit for someone looking for a turnkey, low rpm role that leverages a well-known company brand. We’re looking for an entrepreneurial sales leader, and hope you’re him/her.
