Inpatient Field Case Manager - WellMed - Austin, TX (740019)

Position Description

The more health care changes, the more certain values count. Like quality, patient-centric care, compassion and a dedication to going the extra mile. As a Field-Based RN Case Manager, you'll wear many hats and work in a variety of environments. But wherever you happen to find yourself, you’ll gain a profound sense of satisfaction knowing you’re helping to create a more efficient and effective health care system for everyone.

 

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Visit members in their homes and/or other settings, including community centers, hospitals or providers' offices
  • Provide a complete continuum of quality care through close communication with members via in-person or on-phone interaction
  • Support members with condition education, medication reviews and connections to resources such as Home Health Aides or Meals on Wheels
  • Assist members with the transition from a care facility back to their home

This role involves approximately 80% travel and you’ll need to be comfortable dealing with a full range of in-home and facility-based environments. Most of the time you’ll work autonomously, so the ability to stay focused and motivated is essential.

  • Current, unrestricted RN license

  • Access to reliable transportation

  • 3+ years clinical experience in a hospital, acute care, home health / hospice, direct care or case management
