A Multifaceted Leadership Role on the Hospitalist Team
As a CPN, you are a vital member of the team who partners with the chief hospitalist physician to engage and educate the hospitalist provider team in quality and process improvement initiatives. You will use key metrics from our proprietary metrics software to measure and track performance outcomes. You will also be involved in various hospital committees and will present information about the team’s quality data to hospital leadership on a regular basis.
While this position does not involve providing direct patient care, you are a part of participating in daily workflows, advocating for patient goals in the care plan, and ensuring communication throughout the care team as the patient moves through their hospital stay. Sound’s mission to improve the quality of health care does not stop when a patient is discharged. We have a keen interest in making sure that our patients are properly cared for after they leave our care in the hospital.
This role requires strong clinical knowledge and experience in the acute care hospital setting (critical care, case management, and quality and/or utilization review experience is helpful). Having knowledge of process improvement methodology and the ability to assess a patient’s clinical status and readiness for discharge is important. As a CPN, you will work Monday-Friday, 40 hours each week in a fast-paced environment while maintaining great attention to detail and accuracy in all you do.
Our practice is built by all of us, and everyone is empowered to contribute and make our practice even better. Sound Physicians fosters an environment of engagement, where both individual and team contributions are encouraged and rewarded. Join us today!
