Reporting to the Director of Public Affairs and Payor Contracting and working with senior leadership, the Public Affairs Manager will be a key strategic leader in policy and government affairs, with a primary focus on state and local policy and government relations. The individual will be expected to work collaboratively with the Public Affairs and Payor Contracting team and internal subject matter experts to define and prioritize SCCA\u2019s state and local policy objectives, to lead external work to achieve these policy objectives with state and local policymakers, and to support federal affairs and community benefit functions. SCCA\u2019s Public Affairs and Payor Contracting team seeks to leverage the growing convergence between public and private payers, particularly with respect to trends in value-based and other novel contracting arrangements, and this individual will be a key participant in informing SCCA\u2019s strategy in these areas.
The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance was incorporated in 1998 as a separate, jointly governed non-profit that included the cancer programs of three partners. Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is a cancer treatment center that unites doctors from Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center, University of Washington Medical Center, and Seattle Children’s. The purpose of this organization is to provide state-of the...-art patient and family centered care; support the conduct of cancer clinical research and education; enhance access to improved cancer interventions; and advance the standard of cancer care regionally and beyond. The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is the only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center in the Northwest, and according to the National Cancer Data Base, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance patients in general have better survival rates than patients treated at other cancer treatment centers.
