Job Description:

Job DescriptionDo you want to make a difference in healthcare? Landmark Health was created to transform how healthcare is delivered to the most medically vulnerable members in our community. Our medical group provides home-based medical care to chronically ill patients, many of whom are frail, elderly and ill-equipped to navigate our overwhelming healthcare system. Because many of our patients are frail and elderly, we deliver care primarily in the comfort of their home. Our Program is also offered to eligible patients at no incremental financial cost to them . We are not a fee-for-service practice; we benefit economically only if we deliver high-quality patient outcomes and satisfaction. As a result, our clinical teams can spend quality-time caring for a smaller number of patients, giving all patients the space, respect, compassion and care they deserve. Our model is finding success throughout the country; we are now the nation's largest risk-based, in-home medical group. At Landmark, our interdisciplinary teams collaboratively manage our complex patient panels. These teams are led by Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, and Physician Assistants, with supporting care provided by RN Nurse Care Managers, Social Workers, Pharmacists, Behavioral Health and other employed team members. The Nurse Care Manager (NCM), is an integral part of the Interdisciplinary care team (IDT), and is responsible for the overall care management process for high acuity engaged Landmark patients. The NCM has oversight for developing patients' plan of care, providing education, guidance and support.

The NCM uses nursing assessment and evaluation skills to help guide treatment and care decisions of the team and identifies services and vendors for needed care while navigating patient benefit plans. The NCM works collaboratively with a multidisciplinary team to provide supportive care to enrolled patients. The IDT multidisciplinary team consists of the PCP, specialists, behavioral health clinicians, mid-level practitioners, pharmacist, nutritionist and social worker and the patient, family and/or caregiver. The NCM ensures that medical services are managed in the most effective and appropriate health care setting according to the patient's medical condition.
