The UNC Department of Family Medicine seeks an Advanced Practice Provider (APP) to be a primary clinical service provider in its REACH Home Care program. The Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant will join a team of attending physicians and RN care coordinators in providing regular in-home patient visits, including assessments, health maintenance visits, and regular monitoring of chronic conditions. These visits supplement, but do not replace the patients' relationships with existing primary care providers (PCPs).
The APP is an integral member of the care team, working collaboratively with Family Medicine attending physicians, care coordinators, and community PCPs to provide high quality, cost effective and seamless care to patients in home and domiciliary care settings. The APP is expected to perform duties and responsibilities with a significant amount of autonomy and self-direction. The APP will provide direct care including diagnosis, medication management, ordering of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, performing in-home procedures within scope of practice, meeting with the care team, and ensuring timely and accurate documentation of all services. The successful candidate will have excellent communication and customer service skills, as well as proven excellence in clinical care.
Preference given to APPs with experience in providing home-based primary and/or palliative care.
