About the Role:

The Senior Policy Manager, Regulatory Affairs will work on the team of the Director of Regulatory Affairs to assess regulatory changes at the federal and state levels, identify how Unite Us can help government agencies and their partners to implement these regulations, and advocate for policy that promotes whole-person health and social care. The Senior Policy Manager will play a critical role in identifying proposed and final regulations impacting screening for and delivery of services related to Social Determinants of Health (SDoH), articulating how Unite Us products can support impacted organizations, and developing and executing external strategies to promote holistic well-being.

As Senior Policy Manager you will help us uncover and develop opportunities in the SDOH space. The primary mandate of this role will be to work closely with Unite Us’ Director of Regulatory Affairs to monitor federal and state policy trends, analyze opportunities to influence and support government programs and objectives, and develop a strategy to expand the impact of Unite Us across the country.

As part of your focus on Regulatory Affairs, you will help Unite Us and our partners to understand continually evolving policies related to identifying and addressing SDoH, including through healthcare quality and payment flexibilities.

  • Analyze, track and summarize proposed federal and state regulations related to SDoH
  • Support efforts to establish Unite Us as a thought leader within the health and social care sector, present on current topics related to SDoH to Unite Us’ customers and prospects, and contribute to white papers and content that enhance public dialogue on SDoH and health system transformation

  • At least eight years of work experience in a related field and industry, including experience working directly with government agencies
  • A strong background in federal and state regulatory analysis as well as public policy, the healthcare industry, and/or a related field

  • The ability to manage multiple priorities and consistently meet deadlines
