As a RN Field-Based Case Manager, you'll wear many hats, and work in a variety of environments. Sometimes, you'll visit with members transitioning from hospital to home. At other times, you will visit members in their home environments. As a member of an interdisciplinary team you will serve many roles including intermediary between providers and members, health care advocate, educator, care coordinator, community resource researcher and more. The goal? Fewer avoidable hospitalizations, ER visits and costly service gaps; and a less stressed, more effective health care system for us all. Want more flexibility, want more autonomy? Work from your own home and coordinate a visiting schedule that is mutually beneficial to you and the members we serve.
