Summary

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced RN to join our growing Population Health team! The Care Transitions Nurse plays an integral role in coordination of care for patients as they transition from an inpatient setting back to home safely.

The Maine Medical Partners Population Health Team care transition intervention is designed to serve the dual purpose of preventing adverse health events during various types of transitions; including avoidable readmissions upon transition from hospital to home and closing the gap between hospital discharge and the return to the outpatient environment.  During the patient outreach, the Care Transition team member reviews the current status of the patient, provides education regarding condition self-management and the identification of red flags to report.
