    De functie / The role

    For the Customer Strategy and Operations Unit of Janssen Benelux, we are recruiting a Program Manager Care Optimization Netherlands.

    The Program Manager Care Optimization is responsible to bring change and innovative care optimization externally (with our customers) and/or initiatives internally (at Janssen). This through the setup and roll-out of large, transformational (VBHC) programs with high impact across organizations, accounts and patients.

    The programs are derived from the ambition of Janssen to improve patient value across the healthcare chain and to ensure optimal access strategies for innovative compounds.

    Being transformational of nature, these programs are characterized by ambiguity and uncertain outcomes. The Program Manager Care Optimization leads (project) teams through this complexity by:

    Translating external needs or trends into internal, strategic imperatives endorsed by Janssen Management Board;
    Translating strategic imperatives into concrete, workable program(stream)s and solutions;
    Driving and ensuring strategic alignment for the programs with the CVTs, HEMAR and RWE;
    Leading and working with cross functional teams (e.g. SAM, Digital, Marketing, Sales, Medical, HEMAR, RWE) and across Janssen organizations (both OpCo and Campus)

    Ensures that running or planned programs are embedded in our CVT, account management and/or patient access strategies and contribute to our broader Market Access agenda.
