Have you ever wondered why the health tech you use is so clunky? Here is your chance to change that! This role is a great fit for someone looking to take their clinical experience to the next level by applying it to the development of technology that others will use to provide the best care possible to patients. It is a unique opportunity to work across industries and disciplines, and develop skills that you will be able to apply in both academic and industry, clinical and research settings.

CareAlign is a technology company spun out of Penn Medicine. CareAlign helps clinicians manage tasks in real time. Although the product works great as a task manager for a clinician who works alone, it really shines when multiple people and teams are using it as a shared workspace to share information, create collaborative care plans, and manage tasks. CareAlign brings disparate forms of communication together in an organized and structured way – everything from dozens of text messages, emails, sticky notes, paper lists and more. CareAlign also provides a comprehensive view of labs, vitals, medications and of course the latest notes and tasks that relate to the patient.
