Job Description

Abacus Insights is a mission-driven technology company focused on transforming the healthcare payor industry. Our mission is to ultimately create a more personalized patient experience, improve health outcomes, and lower the overall cost of healthcare. Abacus Insights provides a flexible, efficient, and secure platform that organizes and exchanges healthcare data from various sources and formats, allowing our customers to uncover differentiated insights that address their clients' needs.

With our deep expertise in cloud-enabled technologies and extensive knowledge of the healthcare industry, we have built an innovative data integration and management platform that allows healthcare payors access to data that has been historically siloed and inaccessible. With the Abacus Insights platform, health plans can ingest and manage the information they need to support analytical, operational, and financial needs.

Since our founding in 2017, Abacus has built a highly successful SaaS business, raising more than $81 Million from industry-leading private equity firms.
