Position Summary: 
The Alignment Care Anywhere program is a physician-led and advanced practice clinician-driven program that is intended to care for and support Alignment Healthcare patients by proactively providing an additional level of medical and social support in the comfort of their home. This program provides patients with medical and social support when and where they need it, with the goal of preventing unnecessary hospitalizations, health complications, and unmanaged disease progression that can occur when timely clinical interventions are not provided or are not accessible. Our home-based program is offered to eligible patients at no cost to them.

In this role, you will conduct in-home health assessments on a panel of enrolled Medicare Advantage members within a geographic area of responsibility. Our members are typically aged 65 and over and home visits will range from 30 minutes to 60 minutes depending on whether it is a follow-up or a comprehensive initial visit. The nature of the home visit will vary and visit frequency will be based on the member’s acuity level (i.e., weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, etc.). You will work within an interdisciplinary team environment that includes physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, social workers and community health specialists to provide and support both the clinical and social aspects of care for your assigned member/patient panels.

• Formulate a list of current and past medical conditions using clinical knowledge and judgment and the findings of your assessment

• Educate members on topics such as chronic conditions, self-care, sick-day plans, and medication and compliance 
• Participate in weekly interdisciplinary team meetings to discuss and develop the most appropriate care plans possible based on the needs of our members/patients.
