Job Description

This Sr. Counsel role with Uber Health Compliance will be responsible for ensuring that adequate policies, procedures, and systems are in place to maintain full compliance with federal and state statutory and regulatory obligations, including those governing non-emergency medical transportation. The Sr. Counsel will also work with the Uber Health Partnerships and Product Counsel teams to advise on and negotiate business associate agreements, and with the Regulatory and Policy teams on legislative and regulatory affairs.

The Uber Health team is taking the technology and driver network that provide reliable rides to millions of people all over the world and bringing it to the people who need it most - patients. Our team is working to ensure that access to healthcare is never a logistics problem.

Nearly 4 million Americans miss or delay medical care each year because they did not have a transportation solution. Current approaches to non-emergency medical transportation have numerous challenges. Rising costs, program integrity, and vendor oversight are problems for federal and private payers. Patients also are not well served by the status quo-wait times are routinely high and drivers frequently do not show. We have a responsibility to do something in the space.

Uber Health is Uber's solution to the Healthcare Industry's transportation problems. We have developed a HIPAA-compliant website and API that allow hospitals, clinics, and care facilities to centrally schedule, manage, and pay for rides at scale for their patients, staff, and visitors.

By offering affordable and reliable on-demand transportation options to patients, Uber Health benefits patients, the healthcare system, and society. These benefits include:

Lowering the patient no-show rate and improving patient outcomes;
Providing immediate cost savings to the healthcare system and increasing the overall efficiency of the system; and
Increasing patient and provider satisfaction.

At Uber, we ignite opportunity by setting the world in motion. We take on big problems to help drivers, riders, delivery partners, and eaters get moving in more than 10,000 cities around the world.

We welcome people from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to help build a future where everyone and everything can move independently. If you have the curiosity, passion, and collaborative spirit, work with us, and let's move the world forward, together.
