Community Outreach Associate (Soft Sales)- Midlothian/Oak Forest

Job Description:
Company: Oak Street Health
Title: Outreach Associate
Oak Street Health is a network of value-based neighborhood primary care centers throughout the Midwest. Oak Street operates an innovative model that drives patient engagement, improves health outcomes, and manages medical costs for the older adult population. In this virtuous cycle: every dollar saved is another dollar we can reinvest to improve patient care. Our model supports our social mission of improving the health and happiness of our patients and the community.
Role Description
The position of an Outreach Associate (OA) is a flexible outside sales position with the goal of adding new patients to an Oak Street Health center. As part of the outreach team, the OA creates, attends and/or runs events to meet with seniors, their adult children, and community influencers to meet prospective patients and to schedule their initial welcome visit appointment with Oak Street. While an integral member of the outreach team, each OA operates independently, with discretion in deciding daily tasks, and is responsible for designing, implementing, and executing all phases of an outreach and sales strategy.
Examples of the types of activities Outreach Associates may participate in to attract and acquire new patients:
Plan, participate, and lead a variety of outreach/marketing activities and events in the local community, including health fairs, presentations at senior buildings, activities at churches and food pantries, and any place where older adults may benefit from learning about Oak Street service offerings.
Manage all aspects of generating prospective patient leads, from gathering contact information, following up to invite prospective patients to tour Oak Street community centers.
Create and/or coordinate activities in locations both in Oak Street community centers and throughout the community, including entertaining parties, bingos, trivia and karaoke.
Develop deep ties within the community to continuously connect with new prospective patients.
Host regular events such as educational events on specific health topics, benefit programs, ESL and creative writing classes.

Conduct individual and small group presentations discussing the benefits of Oak Street Health with the intention of scheduling initial physical exams.
Develop strong relationships with the people in their community.
Other duties as applicable.
