The WellBe care model is a Physician Led Advanced Practice geriatric care (care of older adults) team focused on the care of the frail, poly-chronic, elderly Medicare Advantage patients. This population is typically underserved and very challenged with access to care. To address these problems, we have elected to bring the care to the patient, instead of trying to bring the patient to the care. Care is provided throughout the entire continuum of care – from chronic care and urgent care in the home, to hospital, to skilled nursing facility, to assisted living, to palliative care, to end of life care. WellBe's physician/Advanced Practicing Provider (APP) led geriatric care teams’ partner with the patient’s primary care physician to provide concierge level geriatric medical care and social support in the home as well as delivering and coordinating across the entire care continuum.
Our APPs are critical to our team that provides compassionate care to the frailest elderly who have chronic and acute illnesses or injuries living in their homes. They deliver primary, urgent and acute medical care to a wide variety of patients. The Floater Nurse Practitioner will be accountable for caring for patients, maintaining accurate and current patient records, and scheduling initial, urgent, and follow-up appointments to patients as required across various geographies based on market need. This role helps to assure ongoing clinical coverage for consistent patient care delivery. The successful candidate will work as a team with our physicians, advanced practicing providers, social workers, paramedics, and care team coordinators to assist in delivering concierge care to every patient. We offer a positive, upbeat work environment where all medical personnel work together for the good of the patient across the community and market.
