In the U.S. alone, over 30 million patients per year are prescribed care via paper and fax. The legacy ordering process is long, complicated, and yields an 83% error rate, resulting in patients ending up in the hospital or worse.

The world is transitioning to Digital Ordering across the healthcare industry. At Parachute Health, we’re leading the charge with a platform that is 10 times faster than the status quo. We connect with major hospitals, payors, and suppliers of life-saving products. Our vision of a "delightfully simple" digital ordering experience for clinicians pushes us forward to transforming the world of post-acute care.

Since launching, we’ve helped millions of patients. Founded in New York City, we’ve grown across 50 states and partnered with 50,000 clinical facilities and over 2,000 supplier locations across 20,000+ products on the Parachute Platform.

Parachute Health’s career development program for recent grads provides an introduction to how technology can improve healthcare for all involved, especially patients. This initial two-year opportunity provides team members the ability to learn technology tooling, systems, and modern communication while supporting and gaining direct exposure to major healthcare delivery partners like health systems, insurance plans, and national providers of care.

Parachute Health’s Career Development Program is a 2 year commitment. During Year 1 you’ll be a core member of our Customer Experience team, providing outstanding support to our users while learning to navigate the healthcare landscape with ease. You’ll tackle phone, chat, and email support while mastering your knowledge of the Parachute Platform. You will also get a front row view of today’s healthcare system and how your impact can truly make a difference. Year 2 will be focused on fine-tuning your soft skills, developing client relationships, learning new and different functions, and exploring your own interests while dedicating your time rotating between operational departments. While you’ll be transitioning away from reactive support, you’ll take on new tasks relevant to the department you’ve rotated into, getting a full picture view of the different initiatives and roles at Parachute Health. Throughout your rotation, you’ll learn how to engage our users, supporting them and their patients in receiving quality care while contributing to operational efforts like researching, analyzing, and implementing the launch of products and services offered on the platform.

Towards the end of year 2, you will work across many departments, before becoming eligible to bring your newfound knowledge and experience to other areas of the organization through internal transfer or promotion. Graduates of the program have gone on to roles in Operations, Data Analysis, Sales, and more.
