An Insider's view of Quartet Health

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Quartet’s office vibe creates a space that balances productivity, creativity, and collaboration. No matter if you are in scheduled meetings with team members, focusing in a phone-booth style cubicle, having an impromptu meeting with someone across the company on the couches, or grabbing a bite to eat and cold brew in the kitchen

Katie

Lead Operations Coordinator

What does your typical day look like?

I take calls from our patients, in our different markets across the country and my goal is to connect them to the right provider to ensure they get the care that they need. It feels great to make a difference at that moment, for another human being that is going through difficulty. My job makes a difference in someone's life; it feels rewarding.

Patient Inbound Specialist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Quartet has given me opportunities to discover what I enjoy and excel at professionally, and what I’m eager to grow in, even if it doesn’t come naturally. Prior to Quartet, I had viewed my career linearly, but after 3 roles in Business Development, BD Ops and now Strategic Partnerships, I’m grateful for each leadership and learning experience!

Charissa

Strategic Partnerships

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I am proud of Quartet's open culture. Our whole team can reach out at anytime; I meet with teams many times a week, and often have 'skip levels' too. We have 'Free Form Food Fights' twice a month - a time where I meet with any and all Quartetian's without an agenda except to be available to answer any questions they have, live or anonymously

David

Chief Executive Officer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I work cross functionally with teams to help assess the current state of our markets and understand where there are areas for improvement and expansion. By analyzing data & communicating findings to teammates across the organization, we are able to refer more patients to care while increasing the speed to which they arrive at their 1st appointment
