Careers at Activate Care

Software Engineer

From architecture, to planning, development, and code review, Software Engineers at Activate Care build features and products that improve lives across the country. 

Andrea is a care coordinator helping navigate hundreds of patients through complex care. Each day, she needs to focus on the most critical patients before their care veers off track, and guide their care teams back to an ideal trajectory. Using Activate Care’s web-based platform, Andrea can launch a targeted series of care workflows to ensure each patient gets the best possible treatment, especially when care crosses organizational boundaries, includes family caregivers, or requires the engagement of community services. In concert, Activate Care integrates each patient’s care plan with data from hospitals, health information exchanges, or insurers, so that automated or human decision-making is always well-informed.
