Posted on Monday, June 3, 2024

Abridge was founded in 2018 with the mission of powering deeper understanding in healthcare. Our AI-powered platform was purpose-built for medical conversations, improving clinical documentation efficiencies while enabling clinicians to focus on what matters most—their patients.

Our enterprise-grade technology transforms patient-clinician conversations into structured clinical notes in real-time, with deep EMR integrations. Powered by Linked Evidence and our purpose-built, auditable AI, we are the only company that maps AI-generated summaries to ground truth, helping providers quickly trust and verify the output. As pioneers in generative AI for healthcare, we are setting the industry standards for the responsible deployment of AI across health systems.

We are a growing team of practicing MDs, AI scientists, PhDs, creatives, technologists, and engineers working together to empower people and make care make more sense.

Implementation Manager

As an Implementation Manager at Abridge, you will play a critical role in ensuring the successful deployment and implementation of Abridge products and services with our customers. You will be the primary point of contact for our valued partners and you will be the driving force behind seamless project execution. You’ll use your exceptional communication skills as you work closely with internal and external stakeholders to deliver projects on time, while exceeding the needs and expectations of our users.

Ideally, you thrive in a startup environment, specifically with a culture that’s built on seeing obstacles as opportunities, having a bias toward execution, being a little nerdy and perpetually curious, and helping teammates succeed.

Your responsibilities:

  • Lead customer implementations and serve as the primary point of contact for Abridge's partners during their initial deployments. Be the person who instills confidence + trust in our partners and team, drives on-time implementations with high NPS, and ensures our pilots convert to full enterprise partnerships.

  • Own the creation, coordination, and execution of project plans, in collaboration with internal and external cross-functional teams.

  • Accountable for leading through each of the project phases, including kickoffs, technical configuration, testing, clinician training, go-live, and post-live stabilization.

  • Identify and manage project risks and issues, and develop contingency plans as needed.

  • Set the standard for what incredible communication looks like. Communicate project progress and issues to internal and external stakeholders in a timely and transparent manner.

  • Develop and execute against comprehensive testing plans with our most strategic partners, including tracking all issues, triaging, and driving towards daily testing goals.

  • Collaborate with support and operational management to identify and implement areas for process and tool improvements in a dynamic and growing environment.

  • Participate in the creation of repeatable processes that will scale with the growing number of concurrent implementations our team will need to support.

To be successful in this role, you:

  • Have a track record of driving successful healthcare technology implementation projects from initiation to completion.

  • Excel at communication and can synthesize information in a concise way.

  • Are extremely organized and detail oriented. You’re able to manage multiple priorities at once, while maintaining attention to detail and quality.

  • Can work with speed and are results driven. You seek continuous process improvement, driven by efficiency. Your role will involve rapid decision-making, quick execution, and maintaining an unwavering commitment to precision and quality in every aspect of implementation.

  • Build strong relationships with various stakeholders at our partner sites, to ensure a long lasting partnership.

  • Have the ability to smell smoke and escalate early, with proposed solutions.

  • Are creative and scrappy with strong problem solving skills, tactful conflict resolution skills, and a bias to action.

  • Have 3+ years of experience in project management, with a focus on software deployment and implementation at B2B companies.

  • Experience implementing electronic record systems and leading through build and testing phases. (Epic is a definite plus.)

Ideally, you have:

  • Familiarity with systems requiring strict adherence to privacy and security protocols.

  • Knowledge of tiered support organizations and escalation protocols.

Life at Abridge

At Abridge, we’re driven by our mission to bring understanding and follow-through to every medical conversation. Our culture is founded on doing things the “inverse” way in a legacy system—focusing on patients, instead of the system; focusing on outcomes, instead of billing; and focusing on the end-user experience, instead of a hospital administrator's mandate.

Abridgers are engineers, scientists, designers, and health policy experts from a diverse set of backgrounds—an experiment in alchemy that helps us transform an industry dominated by EHRs and enterprise into a consumer-driven experience, one recording at a time. We believe in strong ideas, loosely held, and place a high premium on a growth mindset. We push each other to grow and expose each other to the latest in our respective fields. Whether it’s holding a PhD-level deep dive into understanding fairness and underlying bias in machine learning models, debating the merits of a Scandinavian design philosophy in our UI/UX, or writing responses for Medicare rules to influence U.S. health policy, we prioritize sharing our findings across the team and helping each other be successful.

Diversity & Inclusion

Abridge is an equal opportunity employer. Diversity and inclusion is at the core of what we do. We actively welcome applicants from all backgrounds (including but not limited to race, gender, educational background, and sexual orientation).
