Post-Acute Care Advanced Practice Clinician in Chattanooga, Tennessee

Join a team of dynamic, results oriented professionals!
TeamHealth has been named among "The World's Most Admired Companies" by Fortune Magazine, "America's 100 Most Trustworthy Companies" by Forbes magazine, and named among "Great Places to Work" by Becker's Hospital Review.

Our advanced practice clinicians (APC) are responsible for driving high quality, safe and cost effective care of patients in our local post-acute care communities. You will work on an interdisciplinary team rounding on all patients as medically necessary as required by CMS.

This includes but is not limited to H&P, admission, progress, transfer, discharge, and acute/follow up. You will also work with the facility to transfer patients to the level and site of care most appropriate for their medical needs upon discharge including returning to home, independent living centers, assisted living, and/or memory care. Our APCs work closely with hospice, palliative care, and home care agencies to ensure a safe transition home. Our APCs are also responsible for timely documentation and billing through our EMR (Gehrimed) that meets medicare guidelines.

As an advanced practice clinician, you will be part of an integrated care team providing primary care services at post-acute care facilities including skilled nursing, assisted living and other long-term care facilities. Our patient population includes long-term care, short-term rehab, memory care, and clinically complex patients and residents. Being action oriented and having a "can do" attitude with a high standard of quality and safety in care is a top priority to help build a strong reputation in our community to support our patients.

TeamHealth is the largest integrated (emergency department, hospitalist and post-acute) practice in the USA and will help you develop a collaborative team based approach to patient care alongside our post-acute care behavioral health team.

You will have a scheduled presence model that allows you the flexibility to work with the CPM to set your schedule based on encounter volume and facility locations so you can find your unique balance between lifestyle and work.

Most programs have an overnight call service provided 7pm to 7am by our advanced practice clinician call team. Part-time and full-time clinicians (week on, week off) rotate backup call to the call team for items that need to be handled by a local provider. Typically very little call overnight if any.

Productivity based compensation model to pair with the schedule flexibility giving you great independence and control over patient care volume and your income. There is no better cross section of income and lifestyle than this program.

Full-time clinicians receive 20 days of paid time off (PTO) and a comprehensive benefits package. Professional liability insurance with tail is provided.

If you have experience in internal medicine, family medicine, or geriatrics or you have worked in a practice setting in post-acute care, traditional medicine (primary care), outpatient, urgent care, house APC or hospitalist this could be a great fit for you.

All Clinicians receive unlimited Clinical Education support specific to Post Acute Care both in person and through various virtual platforms that allow you to receive CEU’s, we offer a comprehensive benefits package, PTO, and Malpractice with Tail.
