firsthand supports individuals living with SMI (serious mental illness). Our holistic approach includes a team of peer recovery specialists, benefits specialists and clinicians, which focuses on meeting each individual where they are and walking with them side by side as a trusted guide, partner, and first call on their journey to wellness.

firsthand's team members use their lived experience to build trust with these individuals and support them in obtaining socio-economic assistance and in reconnecting to primary and behavioral care. Support like this creates substantial savings for managed care organizations (Medicaid providers) and taxpayers by decreasing inappropriate healthcare utilization. This enables us to build solutions that scale and, as a result, change the way our society supports those most impacted by SMI.

We are cultivating a team of deeply passionate problem-solvers to tackle significant and complex healthcare challenges with us. This is more than a job—it's a calling. Every day, you will engage in work that resonates with purpose, gain wisdom from motivated colleagues, and thrive in an environment that celebrates continuous learning, creativity, and fun.

firsthand’s Activation team serves individuals in the first 60-90 days of being engaged. The individuals firsthand serves often are not regularly plugged into quality care.

  • Proactively communicate Clinical Documentation performance, opportunities and risks to firsthand’s executive Leadership and Finance teams
  • Collaborate with Community Operations leadership to guide performance management for Health Guide (HG) visit scheduling and other key metrics (e.g., condition addressal)
  • Partner with Compliance and Activation teams to develop and manage company-wide policies for risk adjustment and coding practice to ensure clinical documentation integrity

You will be a good fit if you have

  • At least 8-10 years of professional experience
  • Strong communication, interpersonal, and organizational skills
  • Highly effective at directly managing or influencing high-performing teams
  • Working knowledge of performance managing risk adjustment programs 
  • Strong individual-centered service orientation
  • Ability to manage ambiguity, work in a fast-paced environment, and collaborate cross-functionally

The required experience you bring to this role includes:

  • Comfortable adapting to and managing ambiguity
  • Demonstrated track record of accountability working in a highly cross-functional, matrixed, fast-paced environment with humility and a bias for action
  • Strong analytical and logical skills paired with familiarity with BI tools, such as Snowflake, MySQL, QuickSight, etc
  • Expertise in Medicare risk adjustment methodologies (CMS-HCC model)

Bonus points for:

  • Experience with Medicaid risk adjustment models, such as CDPS and ACG
  • Bachelors or Masters Degree in business, finance, management, analytics, or equivalent
  • Professional experience in high-growth startup environments
  • Experience serving those with complex medical conditions, and preferably SMI and/or SUD
