Why Be a RN Case Manager with Strive Health?
§ Not your typical case management – we emphasize building relationships with patients rather than “box-checking” and solely following protocols
§ Put into action both your clinical and team leadership skills
§ Be a valued part of an integrated care team with more support, collaboration and teamwork
§ Journey alongside your patients and their families
The Registered Nurse (RN) Case Manager works alongside Strive care coordinators and nurse practitioners to coordinate and facilitate quality, cost-effective care while minimizing fragmentation of the healthcare delivery system for CKD and ESRD patients. The RN case manager will supervise the team of care coordinators and social workers while acting as the clinical subject matter expert and resource for patients and their families, the local care team, and other healthcare professionals. Services to patients are generally provided telephonically but there may be programs where on-site visits to clinics, medical offices, hospitals or visits to patient homes are required. The RN Case Manager will manage the care coordination for a panel of patients as well as manage a team of direct reports.
