Health is the result of over a decade of dedicated visionary leaders and innovative organizations challenging the status quo for PAC management solutions. We do healthcare differently and we are changing healthcare one patient at a time. How might you ask? By hiring talented clinicians, engineers, analysts, and healthcare leaders to create and utilize cutting edge technology to provide the patient with the best level of care for the right amount of time.
Why Is This Role Critical?
The Skilled Inpatient Care Coordinator (SICC) plays an integral role in optimizing the patient's recovery journey. The SICC completes weekly LiveSafe assessments and engages the PAC inter-disciplinary care team providing them with the Outcomes Prediction Tool (OPT) to align expectations for discharge planning. He/She will engage the patient and family to share information and facilitate informed decisions. By serving as the link between patients and the appropriate health care personnel, the SICC is responsible for ensuring efficient, smooth, and prompt transitions of care.
