Where You’ll Work:
PursueCare is a startup technology-enabled healthcare management services organization ("MSO") that is addressing the opioid epidemic with an intelligent, convenient, and stigma-free telehealth treatment platform that creates a better experience and outcomes for healthcare providers and patients alike. As traditional opioid addiction treatment models have failed to provide enough access and lasting outcomes for patients, states continue to push for innovative solutions to serve the overwhelming need, particularly across rural and underserved areas. Our vision is to improve access to opioid addiction care and promote better patient engagement/outcomes by providing convenient, private and stigma-free telemedicine services through a virtual network of on-demand prescribing physicians, addiction counselors, and clinics, as well as other recovery resources and dedicated addiction pharmacy services, right through a browser or smart phone app. 
Our platform offers telehealth video conferencing, marketing, care coordination, billing, EHR, reporting, partnerships with referral sources for patients in need of recovery intervention, and ancillary services to addiction treatment practitioners and clinics. We offer greater access and engagement with private, stigma-free medication-assisted treatment (“MAT”) programs and evidence-based protocols, increasing the likelihood practitioners will be able to treat more patients, more consistently, with better outcomes. 
We offer all full-time employees unlimited paid time off to allow our team members to properly recharge, competitive salaries, bonus opportunities, equity opportunities, and affordable health coverage with company contributions. We are located in Middletown, CT which is coincidentally right smack in the middle of Connecticut. We offer work-from-home/remote opportunities for certain positions, based upon being able to meet the core competencies and requirements for the position from your location. We pledge to be an Equal Opportunity Employer.
