Company Overview

Cohere Health is illuminating healthcare for patients, their doctors, and all those who are important in a patient’s healthcare experience, both in and out of the doctors office.  Founded in August, 2019, we are obsessed with eliminating wasteful friction patients and doctors experience in areas that have nothing to do with health and treatment, particularly for diagnoses that require expensive procedures or medications.  To that end, we build software that is expressly designed to ensure the appropriate plan of care is understood and expeditiously approved, so that patients and doctors can focus on health, rather than payment or administrative hassles.

Opportunity overview

In this role you will join Cohere Health at a key inflection point to help build and run our clinical programs necessary to deliver a radically improved pre-authorization experience for physicians, their staff, and most importantly, patients. This means that you will help design the protocols and operations that effectively align prior authorization policies with evidence-based, safe and timely care, and be a part of the initial team conducting clinical review of authorization requests. The candidate must be experienced enough to be a seasoned subject matter expert and be willing to participate in the entire review process, delivering high quality review in service of patients and the care plans outlined by their physicians.
