Occupational Health Services Coordinator – Digital Nova Scotia – Leading Digital Industry

Occupational Health Services Coordinator

PRAXES believes that everyone should be able to have timely access to excellent medical advice and care, wherever they are, and whenever they need it.

PRAXES is an innovative tele-medicine company, headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia, that is changing how medical care is delivered in Canada and in remote places around the world.

We are looking for someone who wants to be a stakeholder in our business, not just an employee. We are highly focused on results, not just putting in time. By delivering results and providing exceptional service, you will have the opportunity to help us grow the business, and in turn grow your own role and compensation. We are a 24/7 company, so we cannot have a ‘9 to 5’ mentality. While our team members generally work regular business hours, there will be occasions where working outside of the conventional schedule will be required. We trust our staff to make best use of their time to manage the multiple demands of work and life, and with consideration for their colleagues and the needs of our clients.

We have a detailed hiring process to make sure that anyone we hire is a good fit with our team and will align with PRAXES values, which are:

  • Be AGILE – Creative, evolving, adapting, curious, flexible, innovative, challenging status quo.
  • Be EFFECTIVE – Deliver quality medical services that add real value for our customers, including patients, employers and healthcare providers.
  • Act with INTEGRITY – Have trusting, compassionate and caring relationships, with co-workers, partners, shareholders and patients. Do the right thing, even when no one is looking.

The Role:

PRAXES has recently signed contracts with several federal government agencies to provide coordination of health services. We need a coordinator to organize, track, and assist with management of multiple service requests that will come in from these clients. This will involve data entry into spreadsheets and electronic patient files to track and manage many concurrent requests.

While we do have office space in Halifax, we are also accepting candidates who live outside of Halifax who could work for us remotely.
