Health Concierge / Coach

Part-time New York, NY

About Risalto
Risalto is a data analytics and Care Concierge company dedicated fixing the broken paradigm in the musculoskeletal space. We do this by connecting patients to care models that work.

We pair every patient with a personal Care Concierge - a one-on-one health coach who is responsible for guiding and supporting the patient through the entirety of their pain journey.

Our Concierges start by connecting patients to the right, high quality provider for them. The concierges then interact with and collaborate with these providers and patients to ensure patients are receiving coordinated and effective care. Leveraging technology and guided by physician oversight, the Concierge also cultivates patient empowerment and self-efficacy through the use of various coaching tools and targeted education. With Risalto, patients receive a coordinated and supported patient journey and get back to their lives faster!

We are seeking experienced, industry leading part-time health coaches to add to our growing Care Concierge team. We are looking for people who are committed to our mission and who are inspired to shape the vision for this early product and leave their mark on the team.
