Job Description

Headway is building a new mental healthcare system that everyone can access. 

1 in 4 people in the US have a treatable mental health condition, but the vast majority do not get the care they need. The primary reason is cost: the majority of therapists do not accept insurance, meaning paying for therapy is prohibitively expensive for prospective patients. That’s why Headway is building the first software-enabled network of therapists who accept health insurance, making it easy for therapists to grow their practices, and possible for patients to find quality care they can afford. 

We launched in April of 2019 and are now powering 80,000+ appointments per month. To scale our vision, we’ve raised over $100 million in funding from a16z, Thrive, Accel, and Google Ventures.

Join us, and make an impact.

About the role 

As Head of Clinical Strategy, your mission is to define, measure, and operationalize clinical quality at scale. This means designing the quality measures that shape how we connect patients to care, pioneering value-based care programs with leading payer partners, and engineering the policies needed to ensure the highest quality provider network.

As the only tech-enabled behavioral health Managed Services Organization (MSO) built with entirely in-house software, Headway has an unprecedented opportunity in the clinical space. Today, we capture >10k Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs) every month.  Tomorrow, we we have the opportunity to revolutionize the way the world thinks about quality in behavioral healthcare. 

You’ll be great for this role if:

  • You are a clinician – either a psychiatrist or a PhD with experience both as a practicing provider as well as operating a fast-paced, high growth business. Bonus points if you also hold an MBA.
  • You are a thought leader –  with demonstrated passion for reimagining how behavioral health quality is defined, measured, and operationalized. This likely means you’ve worked in health plans, health systems, and / or value-based healthcare startups.
  • You are a collaborator – eager and adept at working in concert with product, operations, and sales teams to infuse clinical strategy across the org.

We believe a team's strength is in its people, and we cannot achieve this mission without a team that reflects the diversity of this problem - across race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and experience.
