We are currently searching for a Registered Nurse to serve as a Practice Transformation Specialist (Immunization) on our Practice Transformation Team. The Practice Transformation Specialist (PTS) is responsible for encouraging physicians and physician practices to explore the benefits, challenges, and opportunities in improving health outcomes and patient experiences while containing healthcare costs. Success as a PTS requires the ability to maximize care teams, provide comprehensive care management and coordination, manage population health, and efficiently use health information technology (HIT) to support patient-centered care delivery.
In order to address these challenges, there are a range of services to support providers, administrators, and staff in increasing the knowledge and skills to provide high-value, patient-centered care. The PTS will utilize:
• Quality improvement methodology, including workflow assessment and workflow redesign • Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) implementation • PCMH recognition process • Electronic health record (EHR) implementation and optimization • Patient-centered communication skills, including Motivational Interviewing and Behavioral Activation • Teamwork and team-based care • ICD-10 implementation
The PTS utilizes a variety of information technology tools/appliances within their practices to improve workflow and implementation for quality improvement. Acts as a consultant to such practices to assist in restructuring clinical and business workflows to optimize the implementation of HIT in these offices. Coordinates task-related efforts by creating, joining and/or leading supporting partnerships and facilitating ongoing discussions and initiatives with the appropriate stakeholders in the state and elsewhere who are working on comparable HIT restructuring and/or improvement efforts. Includes the coordination and sharing of information and resources (data, communications, and marketing), avoiding duplication of efforts and resources, minimizing inconsistencies, reducing burden on the participants, and developing and deploying strategies that are cost effective and improve HIT utilization and efficiencies, cultural competencies and other related measures. Requires working knowledge of EHR, Clinical Decision Support, PCMH, ICD10 and EHR reporting modules for quality improvement. Requires excellent troubleshooting and decision-making skills, self motivation and the use of sound judgment and discretion.
This is a home-based position, but will require some travel to local practices and organizations. The successful candidate must reside in Delaware or the greater Philadelphia, PA area.
Minimum Education/Training Required: A bachelor's degree in MIS, computer science, engineering, or a healthcare discipline from an accredited four-year college or university. Relevant master's degree or clinical (RN,LPN) degree preferred.
