Social Worker Iora Health
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Overview:
Due to the success of our Brooklyn practice offered through Freelancers Medical, we are looking to hire another full-time Social Worker.
Freelancers Insurance Company (FIC), Collective Primary Care (CPC), and Iora Health are partnering to revolutionize primary care through our unique care model. This model of health care changes everything. 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). Care teams 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.
