At Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK), we’re not only changing the way we treat cancer, but also the way the world thinks about it. By working together and pushing forward with innovation and discovery, we’re driving excellence and improving outcomes.

We are proud to be on Becker’s Healthcare list as one of the 150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare in 2016, as well as Glassdoor’s annual Employees’ Choice Awards 2017.

Job Description

We are:

 

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center physicians have performed more than 4,000 autologous and allogeneic transplants over three decades and oversee transplants in close to 400 patients each year. Because of the expertise of our transplant team, our patients often have excellent results. Our one-year survival rate for allogeneic bone marrow transplantation is the best in the tri-state region, according to results of an independent study conducted by the US National Marrow Donor Program. Since 1973, when Memorial Sloan Kettering physicians performed the world’s first successful transplant between a patient and an unrelated donor, our investigators have been at the forefront of research in stem cell transplantation and pioneered many of the approaches widely used today. Our physicians and laboratory researchers who specialize in stem cell transplantation continually strive to improve the outcomes of patients who undergo transplants, to modify the procedure to reduce the possibility of complications, and to make transplants available to more people who could benefit.

 

You are:

  • An effective communicator, capable of determining how best to reach different audiences and executing communications based on that understanding.
  • Flexible in your approach and demeanor in order to align with the shifting demands of evolving circumstances.
  • Adept at creating partnerships and working collaboratively with others to meet shared objectives and goals.
  • Capable of building strong customer relationships and delivering customer-centric solutions.
  • A good decision-maker, with proven success at making timely decisions that keep the organization moving forward.
  • Action-oriented and eager to embrace new opportunities and tough challenges with a sense of urgency, high energy, and enthusiasm.

 

You will:

  • Conduct the processes necessary to obtain prior authorization for bone marrow transplants and related procedures in the Adult Bone Marrow Transplant Service (ABMT)
  • Initiate patient cases with insurance companies and provide requested clinical information to obtain benefit verification of coverage and authorization.
  • Establish working relationships with internal and external insurance companies to ensure that all transplant related inquiries and requests are handled in a timely manner. 
  • Interact and communicate with administrative, nursing, and physician staff within the ABMT Service and inter-departmentally across MSK to ensure patients’ needs are addressed and met in the appropriate timeframe.
  • Assist service efforts and quality assurance efforts through data collection and information management and sharing.

 

You have:

  • High school diploma with the expectation of completing B.A. or B.S. in 2-4 years. Bachelor’s degree preferred.
  • Healthcare experience preferred.  
  • Ability to manage and maintain organization. 
  • Strong attention to detail
  • The ability to independently set priorities managing several tasks simultaneously and meet established deadlines.
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office Suite.
