We’re listeners, advocators, mentors and believers. We are passionate about great people, and you should be too! Housing Works has an abundance of promotional opportunities within the Case Management program.
We are looking for Care Managers that will provide care coordination services to members with chronic health conditions. Care Managers that will work in a variety of environments (e.g. health clinics, etc.), interact with members leaving the hospital, and perform home visits. You may also act as an intermediary between providers and members – serving in numerous roles, such as educator, evaluator, service coordinator, community resource researcher and more. The result? Fewer hospitalizations, ER visits and costly service gaps; and a less stressed, more effective health care system for us all. Want more flexibility, want more autonomy? Work from your own home and coordinate a visiting schedule that is mutually beneficial to you and the members we serve.
