Manage all care of participants in the nursing home providing regular visits as dictated by PACE standards and participants’ needs
Review outcomes and utilization data, including adverse events, hospitalizations, and use of specialists and collaboration with IDT to identify opportunities for improved care and operations

Why you’ll love working with us:
You’ll have the opportunity to work alongside a team to create meaningful change and to provide care for patients in the way you feel is best
With a small patient caseload, you’ll have ample time to focus on building relationships
