Remote Health Care Concierge

Full-time positions available New York, NY

About Risalto
Risalto is a data analytics and Care Concierge company dedicated fixing the broken paradigm in the musculoskeletal space. Risalto has created a Virtual Center of Excellence - a comprehensive, patient-centered solution that gets in front of the usual disjointed and wasteful care processes that most patients go through, and instead it ensures that every patient gets high quality, delightful care.

Our delightful patient experience centers around our Care Concierge teams. Upon initiating with Risalto, every patient is paired with a personal Care Concierge and a one-on-one health coach, a dedicated combo who is jointly responsible for guiding and supporting the patient through the entirety of his/her pain journey.

Leveraging technology and guided by physician oversight, our Concierge teams start by connecting patients to the right, high quality provider for them. The concierge teams then interact with and collaborate with these providers and patients to ensure that patients are receiving coordinated and effective care. Throughout the patient’s journey, our Concierge teams cultivate patient empowerment and self-efficacy through the use of various coaching tools and targeted education, powered by a holistic view of patient health. With Risalto, patients receive a coordinated and supported patient journey and get back to their lives faster!

We are seeking additional dedicated and passionate Care Concierges to join our Concierge teams. We can accept candidates from a variety of backgrounds including medical assistants, care coordinators, patient navigators -- employees with a healthcare background and an intrinsic customer service mindset.
