Center for Innovation & Care Transformation
In late 2021, PSCN launched a new business unit within the organization: the Center for Innovation & Care Transformation (CICT). At the heart of the CICT’s development was the Triple Aim Model:
- Better Care for Individuals: integrated wellness model across time and location
- Lower Per Capita Costs: potential to take risk and gain-sharing
- Better Health for Populations: older adults with chronic conditions
Grounded in this framework, the CICT carries out its mission to transform how older adults get the care and services they need, when they need them, in the way they choose; fundamentally shifting care delivery, reducing fragmentation, duplication, confusion and cost, while improving understanding, adherence and outcomes.
The CICT serves as PSCN’s internal architect and engine working with internal partners as a dedicated team of experts, focused on the identification, vetting, planning, development, implementation, and commercialization of transformational and scalable care management programs and services. The CICT functions as the mechanism to seek and evaluate new business opportunities with the potential to transform the care experience for older adults in the community at-large, while also rebalancing the PSCN portfolio of services and corresponding revenue. To maximize learning and strengthen the entire organization, the CICT leverages assets and competencies through collaboration with existing service lines and identifies innovative opportunities in the broader health care ecosystem, thereby elevating Care Management and Managed Care skills.
Senior Director, Care Transformation – Position Overview
With strength and experience in strategy and business development, the Senior Director is critical to the success of the CICT and will report directly to the PSCN Senior Vice President for Strategic Initiatives.
There is a constant generation of ideas submitted to, or identified by, the CICT for consideration. In the less than 2 years since inception, the CICT received and evaluated over thirty (30) opportunities, selected twelve (12) for further exploration, and selected seven (7) initiatives for the first wave of development and implementation.
From an internal perspective, the Senior Director will support and oversee the continued deployment and expansion of the seven (7) initiatives that are already launched while running CICT operations, conducting research, critically reviewing data, and assuring attainment of the financial, care, and quality outcomes. Continuous innovation and testing of ideas are the hallmark of this role. It is imperative that the Senior Director collaborates with service line leaders across PSCN to test and adopt new care models and applications which improve results, scalability, and ROI. PSCN has a history of successful matrix relationships within and across service lines. This model is very familiar to the organization’s service lines where the CICT has cross-functional and cross- organizational authority for model and philosophy integrity, while the individual service lines and communities have accountability for execution and adherence.
From an external-facing perspective, the Senior Director will assess whether the CICT can achieve significant external/systemic impact with the advancement of the solutions already launched or in the planning phase. The exploration of potential external impact will require that the Senior Director quickly engage with PSCN’s current contacts and partners, as well as identify new contacts and partners (e.g. physicians, hospitals/health systems, payers), who can be sources of business referrals or become contracted clients.
The Senior Director is primarily responsible for the following:
