At Nuna, our mission is to make high-quality healthcare affordable for everyone. We are dedicated to tackling one of our nation’s biggest problems with ingenuity, creativity, and a keen moral compass.

Nuna is committed to simple principles: a rigorous understanding of data, modern technology, and most importantly, compassion and care for our fellow human. We want to know what really works, what doesn't—and why.

Nuna partners with healthcare payers, including government agencies and health plans, to turn data into takeaways and information into meaning.

YOUR TEAM

Nuna’s Value Platform team is building an impactful new product to help turn value-based care into a reality within the United States healthcare system. Value-based healthcare is a delivery model where hospitals are paid based on patient health outcomes, instead of the traditional fee for service model. These value-based payment arrangements are transforming healthcare, but operationalizing them is challenging and complex. That’s why we are tackling the daunting task of making it easier, by automating these value-based arrangements in an accurate, reliable, and transparent way.

At the core of these agreements is a considerable amount of data from various sources. The Value Platform team is building a high throughput pipeline to efficiently calculate performance measures for providers, identify opportunities for improvement, and present these insights in an easily digestible way. This involves running complicated data pipelines on distributed computing clusters with up to real-time data input.

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. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. 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.
