Featured Health IT Job: Technical Lead

We like to regularly feature a healthcare IT job that might be of interest to readers. Today, we’re featuring the Technical Lead position that was recently posted on Healthcare IT Central. This position was posted by Turning the Corner for Julota and is a remote position.

Here’s a description of the position:

Julota is a healthcare-focused community interoperability platform that provides an extremely intuitive, robust data collection platform for building community networks, consent management, and tracking patient outcomes across the care continuum. The software built upon our platform is used for data collection, analytics, predictive analysis, automated processes and networking, and AI-driven community navigation. The Julota platform is designed with a specific goal in mind: to ensure every customer is integrated and connected with their partners for providing the next level of community care. At Julota, we believe our technology should enable our customers, allowing them to focus primarily on providing quality care while Julota handles the care coordination and data sharing policies. We design, build, and manage software that solves complex problems in healthcare, such as community networks that improve societies by providing necessary care, reducing threats, ensuring safety, and preventing misuse and overutilization of emergency services that is currently causing waste of more than $1 trillion every year in healthcare alone.

We look for individuals that are creative problem solvers and implementers. Individuals that find complex problems around human behavior fascinating and want to make an impact in their local community and communities throughout the United States. Here at Julota, we believe in making leaps forward and serious impacts on community care, such as homelessness, starvation, overutilization, and mental health. We meet up with our customers often and shadow them to see the use of our platform in the field and its effects on providing care to populations that are considered unreachable with the sole purpose to take the next step in the process of changing the lives of millions. The impact we make directly affects the communities and reduces healthcare costs for everyone. We are not an off-the-shelf platform or software suite. We work closely with every customer for the life of our relationship together, which over the past 4 years has resulted in a 100% customer retention rate for our communities across 5 states.
