Physician Assistant Iora Health
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Overview:
Due to the success of our Brooklyn practice offered through Freelancers Medical, we are looking to hire a full-time Physician?s Assistant (PA).
Freelancers Insurance Company (FIC), Collective Primary Care (CPC), and Iora Health are partnering to revolutionize primary care through our unique care model. This model is outside of the traditional fee-for-service payment system, which frees medical providers and other caregivers to spend more time building stronger relationships with patients. Patients will enjoy easy appointment scheduling, access to their doctor and health coach by phone and email, and free wellness groups (such as yoga and meditation). Providers will enjoy the benefits of smaller panel sizes, closer relationships with patients, no billing or coding, and the opportunity to lead systemic change in health care delivery while working with a true team. At the heart of our new staffing model is a team of health coaches, who work with patients to coordinate services, unlock personal motivation, and make healthy lifestyle changes. This model of care delivery dramatically improves the patient care experience as well as the quality of clinical outcomes.
As a commitment to providing its members with the highest quality healthcare available and to promote the health and wellbeing of its members, FIC has engaged with Iora Health to provide this more comprehensive form of primary care. Iora Health is a rapidly growing primary care management services organization that is opening such innovative primary care practices nationwide in an effort to change care delivery as we know it today.
The Iora PA will work with the Medical Director to play a critical role in both care delivery as well as the ongoing implementation of the model. Specific tasks will include:
Delivering adult medicine and pediatric services within the practice, including both traditional face-to-face visits as well as non-visit based interactions (e.g. phone and email).
Supervising and training a team of health coaches, who, based on a community health worker / promotora model, will help patients to set self-management goals, improve patient self-efficacy, and support physicians.
Participating in development of robust group visit offerings, including educational classes, yoga and fitness classes, etc.
Participating in the evolution of our model by contributing to quality improvement activities.
Carrying out other appropriate professional duties as may be necessary, including liaison with outside medical consultants, hospitalists, emergency room providers, etc.
We are looking for someone trained and experienced treating both adults and children who has or can obtain a New York State license. The ideal candidate will be an excellent clinician, a systems thinker, technology savvy, personable, be able to think out of the box, and value customer service and efficiency highly. We want someone who is idealistic, thoughtful, articulate, hard working, creative, flexible, and able to deal with uncertainty. Candidates with work experience outside of medicine, and those with additional advanced degrees or specialization are encouraged to apply.
