Introduction

Bellese Technologies is looking for someone with a passion for solving big problems in healthcare.  We need business analysts who love to uncover requirements that lead to performant, elegant, and useful solutions used by millions of Americans. People use our solutions to provide information about care and coverage when it is needed most to make decisions about their health. We develop digital services that empower patients and caregivers with cost and quality information, as they have come to expect. 

Do you like to tackle complex problems and help define/build their solution? Do you like to translate the needs of humans into software designs and solutions? Do you enjoy the complex data analysis with large data sets? If you answer “yes” to many/all of these questions then you may be just the kind of person we are looking for.

Our team is charged with maintaining and improving the software at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that supports the Hospital Quality Reporting program. Thousands of hospitals across the country depend on these systems to submit quality measure data that reflects the care beneficiaries receive in their facility.  Our teams will continuously strive to modernize these systems, while improving them in ways that reduce provider burden and minimize costs to CMS.  We do this through HCD and Service design practices, product thinking, and skilled engineering.  At Bellese, we’re relentlessly focused on enabling and empowering providers to focus on improving the quality and safety of patient care.

We foster a learning environment that thrives on curiosity, innovation, and passion about improving healthcare in America.  Our remote-first team is spread across 20+ states and leverages exceptional collaboration to amplify our strengths.  Bellese is minority owned and operated.  We provide an environment focused around helping you achieve your goals.  Because when you succeed, we all succeed.
