Job Description

Landmark Health

Do you want to make a difference in healthcare?

** Flexible schedule, competitive pay and great benefits **

Landmark Connect is a division of Landmark Health. Landmark Health was created to transform how healthcare is delivered to the most medically vulnerable members in our community.  Landmark Health is a medical group that provides home-based medical care to chronically ill patients, many of whom are ill-equipped to navigate our overwhelming healthcare system.

Landmark Connect extends the mission of Landmark Health by transforming care delivery for patients that reside in skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) and long-term care facilities. Landmark Connect embeds high-quality primary care providers (MD and/or APPs) in facilities as dedicated support to treat residents in-place. By placing primary care resources in facilities, we aim to deliver better health outcomes for patients, improve facility performance on quality metrics, and improve patient and family satisfaction.

We are looking for providers who are passionate about improving the quality of care for patients residing within facilities and helping facilities improve and maintain high performance on quality metrics and standards.

You may also be involved in the development and/or implementation of medical management policy, clinical protocols, and quality management programs.

As a provider, you will be expected to perform the following activities:
• Establish and maintain effective relationships with patients, their family and legal representatives, facility staff, and other collaborating physicians/providers.
• Diagnose, prescribe, and treat within the scope of the Nurse Practitioner and consistent with standard of care.

• Following the visit, promptly document and communicate any pertinent information to the facility staff
• Understand and comply with long-term care policies and procedures, including those that regulate nursing facilities and assisted living communities.
