The scheduling coordinator fulfills a variety of roles to provide continuity of care for patients. The scheduling coordinator is an essential component of the transplant team and works in conjunction with clinical, financial and data management colleagues to assure patients are scheduled and authorized for services in a timely and efficient manner to minimize scheduling complications and coordinate services with the least amount of visits to Keck Medical Center. Duties include: closely monitoring patients throughout various transplant phases to assure completion of required testing and services, validating financial clearance for services being scheduled, providing stellar customer service when interfacing with patients in person and over the phone to establish appointments, alerting clinicians when patient testing is complete or when patients are non-compliant in completing medical services, coordinating collection of testing results and provider notes, coordinating care with ancillary departments as needed. The scheduling coordinator is also expected to problem-solve in real time and provide appropriate direction and support to patients and staff as they relate to appointment scheduling and monitoring the completion of requested/required services. The scheduling coordinator will participate in team meetings and discussions related to complex cases, advancing operational throughput and process improvement to benefit patient care. S/he should possess analytic skills and be able to evaluate/analyze information, patient charts and physician notes to effectively schedule patient care and convey/communicate outcomes as needed to others. S/he should have excellent verbal and written skills and an ability to easily learn hospital and transplant IT systems as they relate to scheduling and record retrieval.
