Health Care LA, IPA (HCLA IPA), a not-for-profit network of Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and Community Health Centers (CHCs) serving underserved patient communities in Los Angeles County, is seeking an experienced managed care executive to serve as its next Chief Executive Officer (CEO). This is a unique opportunity to lead the largest IPA in California. The CEO is responsible for the overall operational and financial performance as well as coordinating the strategic direction of the organization. The CEO will have an internal and external focus and enjoy being the "face" of HCLA IPA, while representing the organization with current and future providers.
HCLA IPA has approximately 550,000 members and its network represents roughly 50 percent of FQHCs in Los Angeles County forming a safety net delivery system which provides quality care for those most in need. The organization offers expertise and resources to the network of community health centers, supporting them as they deliver care and service to their patients. HCLA IPA has a long-standing relationship with MedPOINT Management, Inc. (MPM), which is a Management Services Organization (MSO) providing administrative services including utilization management, care management, customer service, and claims processing to help members and providers easily navigate managed care. HCLA IPA maintains a strong financial position and has considerably grown its membership in the last five years as a result of Medicaid Expansion.
The Board of Directors is looking for a visionary executive leader who will focus on strategic planning and initiatives that will optimize operational performance as well as enhance the current structure of HCLA IPA. The ideal candidate will be a self-starter who has a tactful and politically savvy leadership style. S/he will focus on communication, support, and liaising with the Board while balancing strategy, finance, and affordability with operations. The successful CEO candidate will have significant managed care leadership experience in an IPA, managed care organization and/or CHCs and be familiar with FQHCs and health plan reimbursement methods.
Keys to the new CEO's success will be the ability to build credibility and trust with Board members and providers, bring a strategic approach to planning for the future state of HCLA IPA while achieving financial and operational goals. The new CEO must evaluate and track ongoing provider performance while advising on operational improvement efforts and implementing HCLA IPA policies and procedures. S/he will counsel and influence leadership at member providers on quality outcomes while being visible and accessible.
