The National Partnership for Women & Families is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that uses public education and advocacy to promote access to quality health care, fairness in the workplace, and policies that help women and men manage the dual demands of work and family. Health information technology (health IT) is the necessary backbone for delivery reform, patient engagement, quality measurement, and population health, and the effective use of health IT is a critical component of helping patients and their family caregivers be active partners in their care. The National Partnership is the leading consumer voice in national debates about how to most effectively implement health IT in patient-centered ways.

S/he contributes to the team’s policy analyses and the development and communication of policy positions and priorities, including drafting of regulatory comments, legislative testimony, and program fact sheets and reports. S/he will represent the National Partnership and advocate consumer interests on some external committees, as assigned. This position reports to the Director of Health IT Policy and Programs.
