Community Care Cooperative Boston, MA

  • Expired: August 19, 2021. Applications are no longer accepted.

Title: Program Manager, Telehealth Community Engagement Initiatives

Reports to: Senior Director of Practice Improvement and Organizational Development



Summary:

Community Care Cooperative (C3) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, Accountable Care Organization (ACO) governed by Federally Quality Health Centers (FQHC). Our mission is to leverage the collective strengths of FQHCs to improve the health and wellness of the people we serve. We are a fast-growing organization founded in 2016 with 9 health centers and now serving 150,000 Medicaid beneficiaries who receive primary care at 18 health centers across Massachusetts. We are an innovative organization developing new partnerships and programs to improve the health of members and communities and to strengthen our health center partners.


With the onset of the Covid-19 State of Emergency in March 2020, C3 and the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers partnered in an effort called the FQHC Telehealth Consortium (the Consortium) to support the development of a long-term strategy for the implementation and sustainability at 35 Massachusetts federally qualified health centers (FQHCs). These efforts require consistent and organized improvement and change management work to achieve a well-structured hybrid model of care well integrated into all disciplines and roles at FQHCs.


The Telehealth Community Engagement Initiatives Program Manager will be funded by grants for 24 months to develop the Telehealth Consortium's patient engagement and digital access navigation strategy and to oversee related grant-funded initiatives at the Consortium's health centers. The Program Manager will report to the Senior Director, Practice Improvement and Organizational Development and will work closely with the Telehealth Manager. Similarly, the Program Manager will interface with senior management, peers, the Consortium's FQHCs, external funders, and telehealth vendors to advance the projects successfully, meeting all funder requests and requirements.

The Program Manager will oversee all initiatives related to telehealth navigation and community engagement. The central purpose of these initiatives is to create a cadre of Community Health Workers, or equivalent staff, who have training in technology support and who can address health equity and sustainability of telehealth in health centers. The Program Manager will support these staff in their health center work and also in creating a learning community within the Consortium. The primary telehealth navigation is funded through a significant grant from the Betty and Gordon Moore Foundation.
