  1. Position: Program and Meetings Coordinator

Organization: Foundation for Women & Girls with Blood Disorders

Posting Date: September 16, 2015

About the Foundation:

In 2010, the Foundation for Women & Girls with Blood Disorders (FWGBD), a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, was launched to serve as a single site, single source of information and education for physicians and healthcare providers.

Menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause present unique challenges in women and girls with blood disorders. Undiagnosed, untreated blood disorders in women and girls have medical consequences at every life stage. The experience and training of three internationally recognized physicians in women’s blood disorders, Drs. Andra James, obstetrics/gynecology, Barbara Konkle and Roshni Kulkarni, hematology, underscored the need for such a foundation; their discussions about this need culminated in the new organization.

The mission of the FWGBD is to ensure that all women and adolescent girls with blood disorders are correctly diagnosed and optimally treated and managed at every life stage by:

  • Raising awareness and educating healthcare providers including, but not limited to, pediatricians,

adolescent medicine providers, family practice providers, internal medicine physicians,

obstetricians & gynecologists, hematologists/oncologists, geriatricians, nurses and social workers

  • Translating and disseminating information and research to healthcare providers

The FWGBD is dedicated to achieving the correct diagnosis and treatment of blood disorders and accompanying reproductive problems in women and girls with von Willebrand disease (VWD), other factor deficiencies, thrombophilias, sickle cell disease (SCD) and sickle cell trait (SCT), platelet disorders, immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) and anemias.

Managing difficult cases requires education beyond what is acquired in a single specialty or subspecialty. Using a multidisciplinary approach, the FWGBD focuses on educating healthcare providers with the aim of changing health outcomes in women and girls with blood disorders. Core tactics of FWGBD include educational presentations, symposia, and interactive exhibits at medical society meetings; working with professional medical societies to improve curricula for key specialties; a state-of-the-art web site; development of live webinars which are archived for continued access; and networking clinics of excellence in women’s blood disorders with new or developing clinics.

Additionally, FWGBD places great value on partnerships with medical societies that can help break down barriers to collaboration across disciplines—across the disciplines that serve women and girls.  This collaboration is key to improving diagnosis, management and health outcomes for women and girls with blood disorders.

  1. Position: Program Director

Organization: New York City Office of the Mayor

Posting Date: September 16, 2015

PROGRAM DIRECTOR, DIRECT ACCESS HEALTH CARE DEMONSTRATION PROJECT

JOB NUMBER: 12383

The City of New York is testing a health care access program to improve uninsured residents’ access to and appropriate use of health care services. This cross-agency public-private partnership program will involve the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation (HHC), Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), Human Resources Administration (HRA), the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA) and a network of community health providers, under the leadership of MOIA and the Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services and supported by private foundations.

JOB RESPONSIBILITIES: The health access program will target low-income individuals who remain ineligible for public health insurance post implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) as a result of their immigration status, which excludes them from Medicaid and the insurance exchanges. The City estimates that out of an unauthorized population of 540,000 in New York City, approximately 345,000 individuals (64%) were uninsured in 2013.

Recognizing that immigrants, in particular unauthorized immigrants, face challenges in accessing health care services, Mayor Bill de Blasio launched the Task Force on Immigrant Health Care Access in 2014.

The Task Force recommended that the City establish a program that includes key elements of the health insurance model codified by the ACA. The planned program will include guaranteed access to primary care and care coordination to improve primary care service utilization and affordability for the residually uninsured in New York City. The long-term goal of this program is sustained improvement in population health outcomes for all New Yorkers.

This program will pick up where the ACA left off and will serve as a national example of how states and municipalities can act now to cost-effectively improve population health for those who remain uninsured and ineligible for insurance options.

In order to implement and manage this program, the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA) is seeking a dedicated Program Director who will work across agencies and with an evaluation firm to successfully implement, manage, and evaluate the program.

The Program Director’s responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Providing day-to-day leadership of the program, including coordinating with City agencies and external stakeholders to design and implement a successful program.
  • Maintaining the program budget.
  • Helping select and manage a program design and evaluation firm, which will support the program for approximately 18 months.
  • Preparing for and engaging in contract negotiations with interested health care providers, and finalizing provider contracts.
  • Overseeing the development and implementation of any technical work required to ensure enrollment, administration and patient information data sharing systems are in place before the enrollment period begins.
  • Ensuring a consistent and successful outreach campaign to potential program enrollees, and a seamless enrollment process.
  • Coordinating with the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City to ensure that all reporting requirements for funders are met.
  • Managing internal reporting on the program, and working with the evaluation contractor to create and conduct a comprehensive fiscal and outcome evaluation of the program’s first year.

Staff for MOIA, along with staff for the Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services will provide policy oversight, in conjunction with the Demonstration Project Steering Committee comprised of the participating agencies. This position will report to the Commissioner of Immigrant Affairs.

PREFERRED SKILLS AND/OR QUALIFICATIONS:

The ideal candidate will have:

  • A Master’s Degree in public policy, public administration or public health or other advanced degree from an accredited institution
  • 5 years of executive, Directorial, administrative or supervisory experience; a Master’s Degree can be substituted for up to 2 years of Directorial experience
  • Expertise in health care financing and delivery, immigrant services and populations, public health research and evaluation, or related professional fields
  • Extensive experience working with City government and agencies as well as community organizations or other neighborhood-based constituencies
  • Strong project management skills with exceptional attention to detail required
  • Ability to work independently in a fast-paced environment required
  • Outstanding interpersonal skills and ability to maintain positive relationships with a diverse array of constituencies
  • Strong time management skills with a proven ability to multitask and to prioritize activities to successfully complete projects on tight deadlines with little supervision
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, with the ability to present data in a simple and straightforward way for non-technical audiences
  • Demonstrated ability to exercise sound judgment

SALARY: Commensurate with experience.
