I'm not the most frequent visitor to the doctor's office, so I was surprised a few years ago by how much better they've gotten at embracing technology. I had one app for seeing my test results, messaging any of my doctors, and confirming appointments – far better than calling, emailing, or sending my test results between doctors on my own.

Someday, I'd like to have it all in one place: all of my medical data, all of my contacts, all of my insurance information...a pipe dream perhaps, but ideal because healthcare is better when it's all in one place, connected.

When I stumbled across our featured company this week, PointClickCare, I was reminded of that vision. I originally found them through Audacious Inquiry, a Certified B Corp that develops foundational technology supporting connected care – PointClickCare acquired Audacious Inquiry last year. They are focused on improving healthcare by connecting services that used to be siloed, with applicability from senior care to nursing to community health.

One of their best benefits is their hybrid and remote work model – most healthcare companies require an onsite preference, making it harder to contribute to the industry if you need more flexibility at home. If healthcare isn't where you'd like to make your mark, however, check out the rest of this week's job opportunities:

NOAA is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration – and I probably spend too much time on their website during hurricane season. We feature a lot of companies here who operate in the clean energy and climate action spaces, and we know the impacts that's having on the weather. NOAA does much more than that, but it helps couch the impact this organization has. Heck, you can even work in Hawaii – how cool is that?
