As senior care specialists, we understand the needs of our patients. Primary Care Plus doctors, nurses and staff know how to treat the health challenges that arise with aging. Because we focus on seniors, our doctors see about half of the patients of a typical primary care doctor. This allows more time at every appointment to get to know the patient, to understand individual health goals and to provide effective and highly personalized health care at every opportunity. Primary Care Plus is dedicated to patient health through continuity of care. As a new member of the UnitedHealth Group family of companies, Primary Care Plus is expanding its impact and sense of contribution. Join us and start doing your life's best work.(sm)

As part of the patient centered medical home team, the RN Care Manager engages in a collaborative process which assesses, plans, implements, coordinates, monitors, and evaluates options and services to meet a patient's health needs through communication and available resources to promote quality, cost-effective outcomes.

The RN Care Manager collaborates with clinical teams in various health care settings in support of the patient, to include acute care, skilled nursing care setting, long term acute care setting, rehab facilities, custodial care, ambulatory care settings, and the patient's home. The RN Care Manager will facilitate the coordination of care resulting in more efficient utilization of health care resources, decreased hospital readmissions and improved health outcomes. The position may be clinic-based (focused on ambulatory care patients) or hospital-based (focused on acute care patients).

  • Works with acute facility's case management department, associated hospitalist groups, and People's Health medical management team in order to coordinate the discharge process and transition needs based on patient's diagnoses and status
