The executive administrative assistant is a highly skilled administrative professional who provides a wide range of support services to the Executive Director and the Senior Director of Operations of Maine Quality Counts. The Directors have a very demanding schedule and the job of the assistant is to ease the workload by taking on most of the administrative duties, leaving the executives to focus on decision making.
The Maine Quality Counts Practice Facilitator is responsible for providing direct coaching support to a physician/provider practice to make improvements in systems and delivery of care. The Practice Facilitator will assist practices to successfully accomplish the goals of specific improvement initiatives, and to support Maine Quality Counts initiatives. This full-time position is for a 7 month period (ending September 30, 2017).
The Program Specialist is a detailed-oriented and organized individual who takes initiative to handle a wide range of duties including supporting programs that have multiple large projects and/or complex workplans in order to ensure effective implementation of program deliverables. The Program Specialist organizes, coordinates, and monitors task execution and progress associated with small work packages of programs across multiple functional areas. This position works closely with Project Managers and Program Directors to ensure that project objectives, their associated work packages, and tasks are completed in scope. In addition, the Program Specialist supports the program(s) with research and analysis in cooperation with the Program Director and Medical Director.
As part of Maine Quality Counts’ (QC) organizational commitment to meaningfully engage consumers in transforming care and to build patient-provider partnerships, in 2015 QC launched a multi-stakeholder effort to spread the Choosing Wisely (CW) initiative developed by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Foundation.
As part of the ongoing initiative, QC has an opening for the new and exciting position of Outreach Coordinator for the Bath/Brunswick (Mid-coast) region. The Outreach Coordinator will have an interest in health education, public health, community outreach, and social marketing. The primary responsibility will be building relationships within the community to achieve the overall goal of Choosing Wisely, as well as to assist in creating and developing strategies for the initiative that seeks to reduce unnecessary use of tests and treatments to achieve a 20% utilization reduction for three high priority areas of utilization.
