Telehealth Nurse Practitioner

Location: Remote (ideally Philadelphia, PA or New York City, NY)
FTE: Contract, Part-Time

About Ophelia

Ophelia is a venture-backed healthcare startup that helps individuals with opioid use disorder (OUD) improve their health and quality of life. We make medical best practices for OUD discreet, convenient, and affordable by providing FDA-approved medication, support, and therapy through a telehealth platform. Our mission is to help patients manage their OUD by using evidence-based medication (MAT/MOUD), technology, and a commitment to patient privacy and choice.

Opioid overdose is the #1 cause of death for Americans under 50, but 80% of 3 million Americans with OUD are not getting the help they need. Most have jobs, families, privacy concerns, and geographic constraints that make it difficult to receive effective, evidence-based OUD treatment. Meanwhile, the majority of rehabilitation facilities do not offer MOUD at all, leading 90% of patients to relapse in the first 3 months upon discharge. As a result of inadequate access to proven medical treatment, an American dies of an opioid overdose every 11 minutes.

We are a team of doctors, scientists, startup veterans, and White House advisors, backed by leading technology and healthcare investors (Y Combinator, General Catalyst, Refactor Capital) working to re-imagine and re-build OUD treatment in America.

Join us, save lives, and help fix healthcare for those who need it most.
