Job Description

Overview

To be part of our organization, every employee should understand and share in the YNHHS Vision, support our Mission, and live our Values. These values - integrity, patient-centered, respect, accountability, and compassion - must guide what we do, as individuals and professionals, every day.

The Nurse Coordinator for Oncology Multispecialty Care Centers (OMCC) is an integral member of an assigned Disease Team. The OMCC Nurse Coordinator focuses on: 1) navigating the patient and family across care settings according to the established patient care plan, 2) ensuring that the patient/family have appropriate information, understand and have the capacity to adhere to the medical plan, and 3) bridging between the various consultants, services, points of care encountered by patient/family. The primary roles of this provider are serving as a consistent primary contact for new patients and their families, partnering with the Intake Assistant to expedite entry of new patients into the system and collaborating with Disease Team members to ensure coordination of care across the continuum for the designated patient population. The OMCC Nurse Coordinator synchronizes patient/family care across care settings beginning with the initial referral and consultative visit and ending with handoff at a designated point determined by the specific disease team (will vary according to patient population and disease team preferences). The OMCC Nurse Coordinator interfaces with point of care staff in accordance with the plan for patient care, educates patients and families based on determination of learning needs, and communicates plan detail to patient/family, physicians, mid-level providers, others involved in the patient's care.
