Wellth is a fast-growing digital health startup with offices in Los Angeles and New York City. Our mission is to help people living with chronic conditions make healthier choices every day. Chronic disease is one of the largest challenges facing our nation. This challenge is largely created due to patient nonadherence to medications and care plans. Only about 50% of people with chronic conditions follow their care plan as prescribed. This creates enormous health and economic burdens on individuals, families, and communities that are largely preventable. Our platform deploys evidence-based interventions from behavioral economics through a mobile app to dramatically improve patient adherence, health outcomes, and costs of care. Wellth is at the forefront of designing powerful new tools rooted in behavioral science to deliver value to our customers: healthcare providers and insurers.
Behavioral Economics is at the heart of what we do. If you are a fan of books like Nudge, Freakonomics, and Predictably Irrational and were as excited as us that a Nobel Prize went to a professor of behavioral economics in 2017, then this is the place for you. Help us build and scale a platform that is helping hundreds of patients manage their care plan and improve their health. Visit us at www.wellthapp.com for more information.
We have created a smartphone app that uses the power of financial incentives to improve patient adherence. Our technology also provides valuable information to nurses and other healthcare professionals in the form of weekly adherence report cards and real-time alerts to help provide high-touch care to their patients. Patients check in every day by taking a photo of their medications in their hand.
You will be working in a fast paced, high energy environment working for a healthcare startup with a positive social impact. Our ideal candidate has a passion for healthcare and a desire to grow with the company. A motivated individual will have the opportunity to gain experience in other capacities in the company including business development, product development, and research if interested.
As a Patient Educator/Enrollment Call Representative, you will be the first point of contact to our patients to introduce the Wellth program and help them enroll. You will recruit patients and show them how to download and use the app over the phone.
In addition to enrollments, you will work closely with the rest of the Patient Educator team to monitor patient adherence and conduct intervention outreaches to help nonadherent patients stay on track. You will also monitor patient health metrics (e.g. glucometer readings) and notify the care team if metrics are out of range. In addition, you will help provide full support through the Wellth Helpline to address any member questions or concerns.
**This is a temporary 1099 contractor position offering $15/hr.**
Candidates currently living in Phoenix, Arizona are highly encouraged to apply! This position will start off working remotely, but once it is safe to go back into an office, you will eventually be required to work out of our new Phoenix offices.
OTHER JOB REQUIREMENTS
We are looking to hire someone who is self-motivated and goal-oriented with a positive attitude and a high degree of professionalism. You will be the face of our company to these patients, and we want you to represent the company at all times. Individuals best suited for this role are comfortable making a high volume of calls on a daily basis. As a representative, you will be expected to provide a high level of service when introducing the Wellth program and helping patients enroll. You must have a clear and professional speaking voice/telephone manner with the ability to be friendly, courteous, and helpful. This role requires patience as we work with a population struggling with chronic diseases who are oftentimes intimidated by technology. Patients are not always familiar with Wellth and require directed guidance to download the app and learn to use it. Individuals best suited for this role are empathetic and want to make a positive impact in the healthcare field.
