Floating Health Coach

About Us

One Medical is a primary care platform challenging the industry status quo by making quality care more affordable, accessible and enjoyable. But this isn't your average doctor's office. We're on a mission to radically transform healthcare, which means tackling the frustrations of everyone involved - from patients and providers to employers and health networks.

Across the country, our members enjoy seamless access to comprehensive care at more than 180 locations across 28 cities (and counting!) as well as 24/7 access to virtual care powered by intelligent uses of technology. In addition to a direct-to-consumer membership model, we work with more than 7,000 companies to provide One Medical health benefits to their employees.

On January 31, 2020 we marked a milestone with our public listing on Nasdaq, but our work is far from over. As we continue to grow and broaden our impact, we're building a diverse, driven and empathetic team, while working hard to cultivate an environment where everyone can thrive.

We are changing healthcare at One Medical/Iora Health. How will it change you?

On September 1, 2021, One Medical acquired Iora Health, a human-centered primary care organization focused on people 65+ on Medicare. By joining forces, we're able to better address the needs of seniors - an important step in our mission to transform healthcare for all.

About Senior Health:

At One Medical/Iora Health we are transforming health care, starting with primary care. We created a high-impact relationship based care model that particularly benefits adults on Medicare and those who might need more attention. Our care model changes everything - the team, outcome-focused payment, customer service, and the technology that supports our care.

We know that when you invest in relationships with people, you can help them live happier and healthier. Our patients get a team that respects and listens to them. We get paid to keep our patients healthier, and it works - we are successfully improving the lives of our patients while lowering costs.

The Opportunity

The Medical Assistant (internally referred to as Health Coach) is responsible for a panel of patients and, in collaboration with other members of an integrated primary care team, helps patients meet their preventive, chronic and acute care needs. Health Coaches engage patients and encourage them to take an active role in their health by providing them with the tools necessary to make healthy lifestyle choices and adopt lifelong healthy behaviors.

The Health Coach's primary responsibilities center around establishing trusting, supportive, collaborative relationships with patients and their families. Health Coaches build relationships with patients in a clinical setting, working alongside medical providers, other health coaches and a behavioral health specialist in a collaborative, empathetic team.

What you'll likely work on:

  • Actively engage a panel of adult and/or geriatric patients.
  • Greet patients and families in reception, bring them back to rooms, establish an agenda, and work with the patient to ensure a pragmatic care plan is established.
  • Capture relevant information about the patient's health and healthcare experience, take vitals, administer point-of-care testing, and perform standard age and condition-appropriate screening assessments
  • Take responsibility (in partnership with providers) for the health of a population of patients and monitor and track whether those patients are up to date on preventive measures

OPERATIONAL
  • Assist with the coordination of care across the continuum, such as: scheduling appointments with specialists, coordinating referrals, and sharing or transferring information with the patient's internal and external care team
  • Participate broadly in the daily operations of a primary care practice, such as: Answering incoming phone calls, assisting with front desk inquiries, and ensuring general upkeep of the clinical space
  • Learn core insurance benefits to facilitate care navigation
  • Present on areas of interest/expertise in health and wellness to team members and patients
  • Contribute to open team forums on problems and process improvements by listening, sharing input and ideas, and enacting decisions and plans.
