Position Description: The State of Tennessee is hiring an Episodes Strategy Specialist to work on an ambitious health care payment reform initiative with the major health care stakeholders in Tennessee.

Our Mission

All over the country health policy experts are figuring out how to improve the quality of health care while restraining the cost increases. Tennessee is now a leader in this area because of the Tennessee Health Care Innovation Initiative. We are rapidly changing the way that health care is paid in the state, and working with the largest health care purchasers and providers to design and implement our strategies.

Our Team

Our team is small (just 13 people) but our impact is magnified by the large entities we engage. Our Medicaid and commercial insurance partners provide health coverage to most Tennesseans and spend billions of dollars on health care each year. We aim to be at the cutting edge of health policy issues, and we work closely together to make large scale change. We are committed to our ambitious mission, and we love our work because it is important, interesting, and ever-changing.
