Company: Oak Street Health

Title: Population Health Director

Location: Chicago

Oak Street Health is a rapidly growing company of primary care centers for adults on Medicare in medically-underserved communities where there is little to no quality healthcare. Oak Street's care is based on an entirely new model that is based on value for its patients, not on volume of services. The company is accountable for its patients' health, spending more than twice as long with its patients and taking on the risks and costs of their care. For more information, visit http://www.oakstreethealth.com .

Role Description

At Oak Street, Population Health drives both our clinical and economic model and is focused on delivering high-quality, cost-effective care.

The Population Health Director will be instrumental in designing and implementing key Population Health priorities.

Content areas for the Director will include, but not be limited to, behavioral health, transitions-in-care, pharmacy and medication adherence, HEDIS / Stars, accurate risk adjustment, preferred partner relationships, and remote monitoring. This will require building relationships with our clinicians, including primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, psychiatrists, registered nurses, licensed clinical social workers, and others.

This is a fast-paced, high visibility role to ensure that we are driving innovation and improvement rapidly and consistently within an Oak Street division. This role will be aligned with a geographic division to rapidly drive results.

An Insider's view of Oak Street Health

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Everyone here truly believes in what we’re building which creates a collaborative and focused environment where we’re always willing to lend a hand. We love to work hard and also have fun every step of the way. There’s never a shortage of smiles and laughter during our team standups, lunches, happy hours, and company wide huddles.


Product Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Traditional healthcare systems tend to leave care teams to figure things out on their own. Here, we apply today’s standards in UX and machine-learning to change that behavior for the better. Gathering direct feedback from our teams, we identify what’s most important to them and help them make clinically sound decisions for our patients’ care.


Sr. UX Designer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

OSH has been a tremendous learning experience for my first full time job. My manager has prioritized building a strong foundation of coding skills, which helped me to learn and transition into our new tech stack. I was given learning resources to develop skills on my own and gained knowledge and best practices from collaborating with teammates.


Software Engineer

What projects are you most excited about?

I am most excited about our disease progression projects. For these projects, we compile unstructured data and combine it with more traditional health data like labs and vital signs to develop models that give providers the opportunity to proactively manage the health of our patients. At Oak Street, you have a direct impact on the patient's care
