Are you looking to build a career with an organization that invests in your development? Are you ready to leverage your academic knowledge in a role that has a direct impact to value-based care? Can you see yourself partnering side by side with providers to improve the quality, value, and experience of care for patients? If so, the Provider Engagement Development Program (PEDP) could be a perfect fit.

In this program, our associate representatives experience full-time development including, self-study, group, and in-the-field learning from senior leadership and industry experts. As an associate, you will not only have the guidance of a mentor, but also the support of a seasoned Provider Engagement Representative partner.

The best part is at the end of the first year, successful program graduates are aligned to a Provider Engagement role within one of our CareAllies markets. Once aligned, they will continue to have support from their mentor, as well as transition into an alumni role within the program as we start to recruit, hire, and onboard the following year's cohort.

Examples of projects while in the program:

As a Provider Engagement Development Program associate, you’ll work directly with our provider groups to influence behavior change by offering real-time performance feedback for value-based contracts and recommending opportunities for quality improvement. Examples of projects could include:

• Building a community of high performing, engaged providers
• Creating trust and accountability across a community of providers
• Providing timely and actionable data to improve care while lowering costs
• Producing results with action plans, not just analytics
• Collecting and reporting quality data to improve outcomes
• Researching and resolving issues for leadership
• Managing value-based contracts to enhance provider performance
• Provider Engagement business support project(s)  
• Working with our clinically integrated delivery system
