Cejka Search has been exclusively retained by Boston Medical Center Health System to recruit a physician leader to serve as Medical Director of Boston Accountable Care Organization (BACO).
In early 2018, as part of Medicaid restructuring in Massachusetts ("MassHealth"), the state launched nearly 20 MassHealth Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) across the Commonwealth. With the goal of improved outcomes and more coordinated care, MassHealth ACOs seek to deliver high quality care at a lower cost. BACO is one of the largest of such ACOs, with over 110,000 covered lives from 19 different organizations across Massachusetts - many of whom experience multiple comorbidities, substance use disorder, behavioral health, homelessness, and other social determinants of health. In addition to the MassHealth ACO program, BACO participates in several other commercial and Medicare contracts, which are also included in the scope of the Medical Director.
The Medical Director will oversee overall performance management, including the development and implementation of strategies for medical expense management, quality performance, risk adjustment, and others at BACO's member institutions. The Medical Director will work in close partnership with clinical and administrative leaders within Boston Medical Center Health System's Population Health leadership team to define overall strategy and clinical programming and then drive policy development and implementation to address key performance and quality outcomes. The Medical Director will serve as the conduit to BACO primary care practice sites and will support them in identifying and implement new performance management strategies that ultimately will change the course of members' lives.
Qualified candidates will be passionate physician leaders with primary care experience in the ambulatory or public community health setting. Preferred experience with risk contract performance management in a complex health care delivery system and developing and implementing new standards of care that drive value-based outcomes. Strong interpersonal and communication skills and the ability to engage with a diverse set of internal and external stakeholders to drive demonstrable outcomes is required. Boston Medical Center Health System is an Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity Employer. Statewide travel between Boston and Southeastern and Western Massachusetts is expected as is the ability to maintain a reduced clinical practice.
