JOB DESCRIPTION/JOB POSTING ID: 12983
For patients experiencing significant or complex healthcare situations, the RN Care Coordinator (RNCC) combines clinical nursing acumen with applied case management expertise to generate highly-individualized care coordination plans. Often, individuals are at-risk for poor health outcomes due to concurrent bio-psycho-social issues and without care coordination interventions, they are likely to use disproportionate levels of unplanned and unnecessary services. The RNCC facilitates planned care collaboration across the team patient, patient’s family and support system, treating clinicians, delivery systems, community services and others. The RNCC enables the right services, at the right time and place, reinforcing wellness by augmenting the patient’s medical treatment plan with enhanced education, better communications, timely staging and orchestrated transitions across care sites and teams. The RNCC conducts ongoing assessments and observation of the patient’s immediate situation, mitigating developments that may create barriers to maximal wellness and safety.
The RNCC directly contributes to resource stewardship, applies evidence-based decision support tools and applications to eliminate medically-unnecessary and duplicative services. The position provides nominal leadership and supports system transformation to value-based services.
