In the face of the biggest industry disruption in memory, health plans are gearing up for big changes in their business models. From the implementation of healthcare reform teams, public and private exchange initiatives, dramatically different underwriting, and new user experiences modeled after Apple and Amazon, health care payers — and providers — are looking for answers and a view into the future of healthcare. So Forrester is looking for a Senior Analyst to help us expand our coverage of this incredibly dynamic area. 

Here’s the important stuff in the job description:

The successful candidate will write for, present to, and advise eBusiness & Channel Strategy Professionals in the healthcare industry (including payers and providers) to help guide their direct-to-consumer strategies, through innovative research and advice delivered through written reports, consulting, client inquiries, and speeches.  The ideal candidate possesses a strong understanding of the business and technology issues facing both healthcare and online and mobile commerce markets, plus an appetite for conducting and writing research to help clients stay abreast of the issues.

We’re looking for a candidate who will be based in our New York, Cambridge, or San Francisco offices and has a solid background and experience in private and public health plans and payers, including the impact of healthcare reform legislation, business strategy, organizational design, and best-practice insights. The successful candidate will be joining a great team at Forrester with a unique opportunity to influence the strategies of health plans and play an advisory role in the future as the health insurance industry grapples with the implications of both healthcare reform and changing consumer expectations. If this is you, we’d love to hear from you! Please feel free to reach out directly at or submit via the job posting.
