Healthcare case coordinators help patients with severe or complex medical issues to determine long-term healthcare plans. In this collaborative position, a nurse will work toward establishing quality improvement and ensuring patients receive optimum care.
Professionals in case coordinator jobs work closely with their patients. Beginning with an initial assessment establishing the necessary level of care, case coordinators identify patient risk factors and manage care and services. They may act as liaisons between providers and help patients make educated decisions about their healthcare.
Most case coordinator jobs are specialized in that the nurse works exclusively with a specific patient population. For example, some case coordinators specialize with elderly patients, patients who have cancer or those with mental illnesses.
To qualify for case coordinator positions, candidates need to be an RN, usually with a BSN. A few years of clinical experience are necessary before stepping into this management role.
