Who we are:
At Cityblock Health, our mission is to radically improve the health of urban communities, block by block. We integrate services to address physical, behavioral, and social needs together, delivered at community hubs and through field-based care teams to make healthcare more accessible, supportive and goal-driven for the people who need it most. 

Every aspect of the Cityblock care model is carefully designed to focus on our members, engaging and empowering them to own and improve their health through trusted relationships. Through mobile interdisciplinary care teams, we are flexible in how we deliver care, meeting members where they are, and together developing and working longitudinally through a personalized and integrated Member Action Plan (MAP). The care team collaborates to support each member’s whole health and social needs. Enabled by custom-built technology, we build capacity, deliver care and dramatically change members’ opportunities and outcomes.

Partnering with community-based organizations and a well-respected commercial partner in New York, and backed by the top healthcare investors in the country, we are reorganizing the health system to focus on what matters to our members—and leading the move from transactional, fee-for-service medicine towards high-value, relationship-based partnerships. 

The role: 
In this role, you will be a part of the first cohort of staff providing direct care coordination services to members, who face economic and social challenges in addition to having mental and physical health needs, through our innovative care model.  You will be associated with our first clinical “hub,” a primary care practice that in many respects will look more like a community center than a doctor’s office.  You work will be mobile, field-based in the community.  It is integral to our care model that we meet people where they are, both physically and emotionally.

As a Community Health Partner, you will work with a panel of members on improving their health holistically.  You will assess strengths, needs, and wants across all aspects of their lives.  The information you glean from your conversations will trigger the development of our MAP (Member Action Plan), and your ongoing work with the member will be to determine the member’s priorities and work on goals.  You will be a member’s point person, available and accessible to assist with whatever may be needed, to troubleshoot in a crisis, or to be a listening ear. You will work alongside, and will be supported by, a care team associated with each member.  
 
You will:
  • Follow a panel of members to coordinate all aspects of their care.
  • Steer a care team, constantly communicating with other team members around member needs and desires.
  • Foster lasting and trusting relationships as the face of the team and key point-of-contact to assist members in achieving goals, identifying new needs, and coordinating care.
  • Meet with members in their homes, neighborhoods, and throughout the complicated paths of the healthcare system.
  • Coordinate care for members, identifying and addressing their barriers to and social influences on good health. 
  • Go above and beyond to connect with patients and partners in a non-judgmental, respectful and empathic manner, to meet their needs, and to provide feedback to the system as a whole as we strive to do better every day. 
  • Work daily within our custom-built care facilitation platform, which will enable you to collect data, organize information, track tasks, and communicate with staff, patients, and family members.. This platform is being built for a mobile workforce, and you will be among the first cohort to field-test our technology, provide feedback to the product development team, and, over time, become part of a super-user group to assist in onboarding and supporting others.  

You’d be a good fit if:
  • You have experience with patient navigation, management, or any kind of direct service provision.
  • You have a passion for working within the community you are a part of, or have been a part of in the past.
  • You excel at empathy and human interactions, and want to improve the health of individuals and whole communities.
  • You are an independent self-starter and a strategic thinker who is eager to learn, improve, and grow.
  • You are excited about how technology can support your work and help drive the ongoing evaluation toward new, better, care.

Nice to have:
  • Experience working with individuals with mental health and substance use diagnoses.
  • Training in motivational interviewing, behavioral activation therapy, or problem solving treatment.
  • Direct familiarity with clinical settings.
  • Multilingual

You should include these in your application:
  • A resume and/or LinkedIn profile.
  • A 1-2 paragraph response indicating why this job is compelling to you.
  • A 1 paragraph summary of a time when you thought you made a difference in someone’s health.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1.

If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
