The Chief Operations Officer (COO) is a new role to a newly formed and emerging entity called the DC Connected Care Network (CCN), based in Washington DC. In 2019 DC Primary Care Association (DCPCA) is launching and incubating this new Network, and the COO will be the first role hired for the CCN. The goals of CCN are to: reduce all-cause hospital re-admissions; reduce preventable hospital admissions, and to reduce low acuity non-emergent Emergency Department (ED) visits, and also to increase the engagement of patients. The DC Connected Care Network will work across seven (7) Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) in the District, which encompass 30 clinics and serve over 20,000 patients.
The Chief Operations Officer (COO) will be a critical position in the next few years as this role will be responsible for building the necessary structures and working functions of the day-to-day operations of CCN, setting the stage for the Network to flourish and deliver its mission. In close collaboration with the CEO, Care Coordination Team lead, and the Finance Director, the COO will develop programmatic strategies for the most efficient and effective means of coordinating care of services between the CCN and member Federally Qualified Health Clinics (FQHCs).
We are seeking a talented professional who thrives in a start-up environment and can roll-up their sleeves to build and manage the structures of day-to-day activities as well as partner with senior leadership, network partners, and key primary care stakeholders. The successful candidate is a proven leader with substantial management experience in a managed medical care or clinical setting. A critical skill set will be the ability to effectively and efficiently communicate with multiple internal and external stakeholders, inclusive of partner clinics, government agencies, and medical administrators.
