The Alberta Aids to Daily Living (AADL) Program provides assistance to nearly 100,000 Albertans in maintaining independence in their home or home like settings, through the provision of basic medical equipment and/or supplies. If you want to make a difference in Albertans' lives, this role may be for you!

As the Manager of Mobility and Equipment, you report to the Director of the AADL Program and are responsible for leading, developing and participating in complex, strategic programs and projects related to emerging medical equipment and supply issues.

Using your first hand experience of working with persons with chronic disease and disability, you develop policy related to mobility and equipment eligibility criteria for the provision of AADL benefits. Your drive for results allows you to define service standards, outcome standards, and product equipment standards. Leveraging your knowledge and understanding of emerging health issues, disease progression, and the integration of AADL within the broader healthcare system, you advise on best practices in terms of predetermined benefit limits, frequency of access, and price maximums. You provide expertise in the adjudication of AADL benefit quantity and frequency requests.

You provide expert leadership and support to the Ministry of Alberta Health, other government sectors, provincial health providers and other affiliated stakeholders both inside and outside the health sector regarding the AADL program. You are aware of technological advances within the industry, develop project plans, develop project budgets and negotiate contracts.

In developing solutions to medical equipment and supply provision issues, your role as Manager of Mobility and Equipment takes into account the interplay of multiple factors influencing health beyond access to health care services, such as leading practices, evidence based initiatives, social and economic environments, physical environment, and health services. Your creative problem solving abilities and agility allow you to be responsive and work with stakeholders to implement solutions for emerging medical equipment and supply issues.

As a superior communicator and relationship builder, you liaise with stakeholders and professional associations with the goal to improve the AADL Program. Through your ability to develop networks and build collaborative environments, you develop strong and positive relationships with internal and external stakeholders in the field. Your ability to engage and consult with stakeholders effectively allows you to leverage your systems thinking and ensure that the AADL benefits program is effective and efficient.

You have demonstrated knowledge of operational policy development and planning, strong negotiation skills, knowledge of AADL benefits, and awareness of medical conditions, disease processes, and emerging health issues. As the Program Manager, you develop others through supervision and leadership of staff in the assessment of requests for mobility equipment and supplies.
