We are currently recruiting volunteers like you to assist with our patient referral program!
TIME COMMITMENT: Minimum of 4 hours per week for at least 6 months
TRAINING: 12 hours
IDEAL CANDIDATES: RNs, MSNs, MPHs, Medical Students, and all applicants that are confidently familiar with medical terminology. Bilingual Spanish is a plus.
This role entails assisting our staff with extending new Patient Center Medical Home (PCMH) Referral guidelines to all Venice Family Clinic (VFC) sites by helping to close the loop between VFC, our patients, and our partner medical specialists. Volunteers would check weekly referral reports against our Electronic Health Record to ensure referral was processed, was approved, that the patient went to see the specialist, and that we received a report back from the specialist. Volunteers would also call specialist offices to request consult or test results if we have not yet received them, follow-up with patients who have not scheduled their specialty appointments and document outcome.Given the nature of this role, we are hoping to place volunteers as soon as possible.
This role is available at the following clinical sites: Robert Levine Family Health Center (Venice), Simms/Mann Health and Wellness Center (Santa Monica), Irma Colen Health Center (Mar Vista), and Frederick R. Weisman Family Center aka 604 Rose (Venice).
