About SonarMD

SonarMD is a venture-backed, high growth startup that contracts with payers and works directly with sub-specialists in their network to provide value-based care for patients with chronic conditions. We regularly ping patients with clinical questions they can respond to quickly via secure text, email or a phone call. We use their responses to generate a numerical value that correlates with symptom intensity, called a Sonar Score, which we track over time to detect which patients are at risk of sudden decline. We’ve proven we can reduce ER visits by more than two-thirds and hospitalizations by more than half, saving health plans more than 15% per member per year.

  • Associate or Bachelor’s degree in Communications or Health Care delivery (Or GED with experience in a healthcare setting)
