Provider Engagement Specialist - Telecommute/Field in Sugar Land, TX (112192283)
Landmark Health, part of the Optum and UnitedHealth Group family of businesses, was created to transform how healthcare is delivered to the most medically vulnerable members in our community. Our medical group provides home-based medical care to chronically ill patients, many of whom are ill-equipped to navigate our overwhelming healthcare system.
The Provider Engagement Specialist is responsible for defining and executing a strategic plan to build high- quality, high-value relationships between Landmark and the leading medical groups and IPAs in its local community.
The Specialist will work under the supervision of Landmark’s Local Market Leadership Teams (MLTs) to segment and prioritize physician groups for outreach. Once that prioritization plan is in place, the Specialist will be responsible for sourcing, building and maintaining relationships with key medical groups (“Key Accounts”).
These relationships will encompass the establishment of formal and informal coordination protocols, governing coordination of clinical care, exchange of clinical information, and member outreach and engagement efforts. The Specialist will serve as the first point of contact for these “Key Account” medical groups. The Specialist will be responsible for addressing issues raised by those Key Accounts, investigating and pursuing further opportunities for growth and coordination, overseeing and guiding technology integrations, and supporting any requirements related to establishing contracts or business agreements.
The Specialist will be measured based on a calibrated mix of quantitative and qualitative metrics, including but not limited to: (i) annual Key Account satisfaction surveys; (ii) the volume of members referrals received from that Key Account, and correspondingly engagement results; and (iii) the depth of technical integration with that Key Account (e.g., direct messaging).
