Medical Assistant (MA) – New Care Center!
apree health is leading the critical shift to value-based care across the United States. Vera is the only care model with the capability to deliver whole system health to a diverse patient population from a single care center. The Vera model is uniquely designed to help people achieve optimum social, psychological, and physical well-being – an outcome that’s neither probable nor affordable within the current sick-care system. The Vera model is anchored by three core elements: high engagement, managed care, and organizational culture change, which combine to drive down utilization of costly services like ER, inpatient/outpatient visits, and transform the overall health of the organization. Join the health revolution.
As a care team member, you are able to do what you love more fully and effectively, accompanying patients on each step of their health journey. With health coaches embedded in your team, you’ll also be able to provide valuable guidance through each stage of behavior change so that patients become empowered in their health journeys.
As a Medical Assistant at apree health, you provide support in delivering excellent patient service, clinical care, and front office duties. A team player, you help to ensure that the care center runs efficiently by managing the flow of patient services, monitoring resources, and working collaboratively with providers. You are adaptable, able to navigate change and work through ambiguity in a fast-paced environment.
“Vera allows me the time to really connect with my patients and when trust is established, they are more willing to share information that will truly make a difference in their health.”.
