We are seeking a primary care physician to join an innovative team that is committed to improving care for underserved patients with complex-needs. Reporting to the Market Medical Director, the Field Team Physician will be based in either our Southfield or Centerline office in Detroit and will include travel throughout the 3-county Detroit metro area.
The Field Team is a robust, multi-disciplinary team that provides wrap-around services to patients in their home to support our delivery of the right care, at the right place, at the right time, with the right care team member. Areas of focus include chronic disease management, safe and effective transitions of care, as well as preventing unnecessary utilization (emergency department visits, inpatient admissions, readmissions).
The Field Team Physician must have a strong desire to build close relationships with all members of the Field Team and regional care management team, and be committed to working in a collaborative fashion to provide excellent care for patients. They must possess excellent time management and organizational skills, with the ability to prioritize and multi-task. Flexible and dynamic, a creative problem solver, this self-starting candidate will exhibit a high level of professionalism that allows them to lead and work effectively with a team of dynamic and unique individuals.
Our schedules allow providers to spend extended amounts of time with patients, allowing them to excel at relationship-based care, which is key to our care model. The Field Team Physician will work with members of a core field-based team (advanced practitioner, primary care nurse, clinical field team coordinator, patient engagement specialist) to address the social determinants of health, ensure safe transitions of care, maximize health outcomes, and prevent avoidable healthcare utilization.
