Signallamp Health is growing rapidly and actively looking for motivated RN's to work with us!
Think about the healthcare experience for someone chronically ill. Most people see their doctor when they’re sick, call for an appointment and sit in a waiting room. When the next appointment is in 6 weeks, what can they do if they have medication side effects, need help getting transportation, or wonder if they should go to the ER or tough it out? Who is supporting our vulnerable and sick patients?
Signallamp has reinvented remote care management – for our patients and our nurses - by staying connected with patients every month and bridging gaps in care between office visits. You work from home while caring for patients and helping them better manage their chronic conditions.
What’s different about this job
*** NEW! Now also offering flexible schedules (4 days x 8 hours, 4 days x 9 hours, 4 days x 10 hours). You pick what works for you! No change in benefits. ***
As a Chronic Care Manager, you still provide the same care, support and education to your patients as you’ve always done at the hospital, office or home health. Only now you’re working from home. Avoid the commute (and the cost of gas!). Be home for your kids at the end of the workday. Work with your pet on your lap. Have flexibility to make doctors’ appointments.
Our nurses build long-term relationships with their patients. They work with the same patients each month, providing consistent and personalized support that doctor’s offices often don’t have time for. Our nurses know that patients need this added support, and patient really appreciate the calls from our nurses. That regular engagement helps patients take better care of themselves and keeps them both active and safe longer.
A typical day
Your typical day as a Chronic Care Manager is filled with checking up on your patients. Has anything changed since you spoke with the patient last time? Did they see the podiatrist that you helped schedule the month before? Do the new instructions from the doctor make sense? You get to see the real personalities of your patients and never know what the next conversation will bring. You also have opportunities to establish relationships new patients and build trust and credibility with them and their families.
You are a key part of the patient’s care team and communicate directly with providers and the in-office staff. Using your own expertise and following the provider’s care plan, you keep patients on task – prioritizing their own good health, verbalizing their understanding of their conditions and getting preventative service. You are also an advocate for your patients, finding answers to questions and helping resolve their medical challenges quickly and efficiently.
You use technology tools to help you manage your patients, gather educational resources, coordinate patient care, and maintain each patient’s care goals. With your experience in Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems, you review recent office visits, communicate with the care team, and then accurately document what you’ve done on behalf of your patients.
