Why we love HIMSS, and why you will, too:



In addition to seeking a candidate with the right qualifications and skills, we are also seeking an individual that aligns with Healthbox’s core values:


  • Invest in Relationships: While some client engagements may be short-term, relationships are not.
  • Be Humble: The size and complexity of the challenges facing patients and healthcare professionals on a daily basis demands our humility.
  • Enjoy and Reflect: Our work is our passion and we never forget that we are lucky to do what we love. We bring this energy to every interaction within our team and with our partners.
  • Embrace the Hustle: Obsessed with producing exceptional results for our partners, we are scrappy and resilient – facing challenges head-on.
