ICHOM (International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement) - Boston, MA



ICHOM is a non-profit organization committed to transforming health care to a value-based system through universal measurement and reporting of patient outcomes. ICHOM was co-founded in November 2012 by Professor Michael Porter of Harvard Business School, Professor Martin Ingvar of the Karolinska Institutet and the Boston Consulting Group. ICHOM realizes its mission by defining global Standard Sets of outcome measures that really matter to patients for the most relevant medical conditions and by driving adoption and reporting of these measures worldwide.

We believe adoption of a global outcome standard will:

  • Help patients better choose the right treatments and providers for their needs
  • Enable providers to understand how well they are meeting the needs of their patients
  • Allow payers to contract on the value of care delivered, not simply volume

In addition to defining global standards, ICHOM plays a key role in enabling organizations and health systems more broadly to implement these measures. Traditionally, ICHOM has focused on institutional-level implementation of our standards, but as value- based health care gains broader traction we are developing new ways of influencing system-level stakeholders.

As part of ICHOM’s growth, there is a need for a Controller. You will coordinate all activities with respect to maintaining the company’s financial books and records in an accurate and timely manner.
