An Insider's view of Healthgrades

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe is pretty chill; everybody dresses very casual, the newly designed office offers a lot of space for collaboration, great kitchens with free snacks and beer/cider/kombucha on tap. We also have 4-6 weeks of time off and flexible work schedules.

Regina

Program Management Director

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Evolving consumer expectations are pushing doctors and practice owners to adopt convenient, on-demand delivery of services. Getting doctors to appreciate these changes and mature their business can be a struggle. We’re taking a data-driven, analytical approach to prove that meeting patients' expectations can be a big win for growing their practice.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Even while working cross-functionally with several different teams, the multiple forms of technology in place make collaboration efficient – Zoom, Slack, Google Drive, etc. Our physical space is set-up nicely for face-to-face coordination with open office space, a big kitchen, and many meeting rooms. We also have plenty of quiet spaces.
