If you are looking for new career opportunities and challenges, join our REMARKABLE team at UW Health!
We are seeking a Patient Scheduling Coordinator to:
Schedule appointments that require coordination of multiple resources to complete the scheduling of surgical procedures and non-surgical procedures requiring sedation or general anesthesia
Schedule patients into multiple modalities of Radiology and/or scheduling complex chemotherapy treatment plans
Evaluate scheduling policies and procedures
Act as liaison with leadership to determine scheduling resource needs
Scheduling at UW Health is undergoing a redesign to better serve our patients. As part of this redesign our scheduling positions are changing as well! Scheduling positions at UW Health will eventually fall into 3 types of positions:
Appointment Center positions these schedulers help patients over the phone and will be able to help patients with multiple types of appointments
On-site check-in/check-out staff these schedulers help patients in person in the clinics, and also place outbound phone calls between helping patients in-clinic
On-site Appointment Center positions these schedulers are located on site at the clinic, but primarily do phone-based work. While doing phone-based work they will sit at a desk that is not patient-facing, but will come to the check-in/check-out desks to help patients in person when the check-in/check-out scheduler is away from desk (i.e. breaks, lunches, etc.)
If you are hired into a department that has already gone through the redesign process you will be hired into one of these positions. However, if you are hired into a department that has not yet undergone the redesign process, it is likely that the scope of your role and/or the location you report to may change once your area goes through redesign.
