Job Description
It’s a new day in health care!

Combining CVS Health and Aetna was a ground-breaking moment for our company and our industry, establishing CVS Health as the nation’s premier health innovation company. Through our health services, insurance plans and community pharmacists, we’re pioneering a bold new approach to total health.

Finally, there is huge untapped analytic opportunity, including using machine learning to optimize rebates in a way no competitor can…and using Aetna to measure health outcomes and negotiate value-based contracts. Our team, and more importantly, our impact is growing…and I’d like you to be part of that growth.

Aetna’s Member analytics team is an innovative team tasked with optimizing our ability to engage with members to help them make better healthcare decisions. Our goals are to improve clinical outcomes and to help members gain more transparency into the healthcare system so that they can save money. To do this we’ve developed a leading capability that combines data science, agile marketing, behavioral economics, large scale experimentation, and optimization of our digital properties and applications.
