Who we are...

Pearl Health is restoring the independence and joy of practicing medicine for doctors in The United States. Our healthcare system has burdened our doctors with too much process, while removing them from what they do best: caring for those we love most. We launched Pearl Health because we believe primary care providers, armed with the proper tools and resources, can have an outsized impact in achieving high-quality, affordable healthcare and in partnership with key specialty physicians can manage and deliver the majority of our critical healthcare. We foresee a shift to an increasingly value-based future where physicians and provider groups will participate in the value they create for the healthcare system and will increasingly require proper tooling, information systems, capital support, and technology to succeed in these models.

We are a team of physicians (Groups), practice-enablement experts (VillageMD, Steward, Stellar), technologists (athenahealth, TrialSpark, Flatiron Health) and health plan leaders (Oscar, Clover, Centivo) who believe that primary care providers (PCPs) are the key to future health in the United States. Today, we support over 600 providers in value-based Medicare models and are on track to substantially increase the Medicare population we will be responsible for managing with our physician partners for 2023 (+$700M of Medicare benchmark risk). Our investors include Andreessen Horowitz and AlleyCorp.

What we hope you can do…

We are seeking an exceptional healthcare executive who is eager to help us build our second line of business. Your core focus will be driving the expansion of our value-based primary care offering to Medicare Advantage patients and plans by helping design and execute our strategy to establish a partnership with Medicare Advantage plans by aligning our value powered in risk or subcapitation arrangements with them. You will help us land 1-3 key partnerships for performance year 2024 and expand into a new line of business alongside our traditional medicare book. As we build up our Medicare Advantage book of at-risk lives and physicians, we are seeking someone who can help guide us and attract larger physician groups to participate in at risk arrangements, ultimately culminating in a General Manager or P&L ownership of Medicare Advantage line of business and potentially our Medicare book in its entirety.

You should be comfortable with the Medicare Advantage landscape, go to market concepts and playbooks, expansion of a book of business, and strategic thinking and collaboration with relevant teams to facilitate good decision making in a lean operating environment.  We expect a substantial aspect of this leadership position will involve leveraging a strong existing network to open doors.
