The Executive Director, Head of Patient and Access Services (Head) is a senior level role responsible for the strategic leadership of two critical components of the Market Access function at Jazz: Patient Services and the field-based Access & Reimbursement teams. The leadership of these two functional groups is combined to ensure the seamless link from strategy to the development and execution of high-quality and compliant patient access services for our patients and the healthcare providers who render their care. The leader in this role must navigate an increasingly complex healthcare environment and will be responsible for optimizing the patient experience and supporting the appropriate, prescriber-endorsed, access to and adherence with our products. This role oversees the selection, management and quality assurance of all third party providers who partner with Jazz to deliver the key patient and access services. This leader needs to be able to design, plan, and pull through appropriate market-leading programs and services for our products’ patients and providers, ensure efficient, effective, compliant execution through vendors, and manage continuous improvement on an ongoing basis. To do so will require familiarity with the relevant market needs and solutions, sound operations management and a high level of engagement with various stakeholders, including patient representatives and advocacy groups and key customers, as well as the inspired leadership of related Jazz Pharmaceuticals headquarters and field personnel.
This role will require a seasoned pharmaceutical industry veteran that is accomplished in patient services program design and delivery, field-oriented leadership and knowledgeable of health care reimbursement practices and related compliance and regulatory requirements. We value a leadership approach that is evidence-based and built on a reasoned understanding of the knowable facts pertinent to patient and access services. We value a leadership style that is informed by active and thoughtful engagement of our internal partners, the patients who need our products and various external stakeholders that will help us achieve our patient and access services mission. We value a leadership style that can translate strategy into action in the marketplace and capture the most important results in a timely manner through disciplined program and financial management. We value a leader who can build resilience into their team and can adapt to changing and/or challenging market conditions. This individual serves on the Market Access Leadership Team (MALT) and must collaborate closely with other key leaders on MALT.
