Hawaii Pacific Health Case Manager, RN - Case Management in Honolulu, Hawaii
Founded in 1921, Straub Medical Center is a fully integrated nonprofit health care system with a 159-bed tertiary care hospital in Honolulu, a network of neighborhood clinics and a visiting specialist program that reaches throughout the state of Hawai‘i. With more than 300 employed or contracted physicians who are leaders in their fields, Straub provides its patients with expert diagnoses and treatments for more than 30 different medical specialties, including bone and joint, heart, cancer, endocrinology/diabetes, family medicine, gastroenterology, geriatric medicine, internal medicine, women’s health, vascular and urology. Straub is home to the Pacific Region’s only multi-disciplinary burn treatment center. The hospital consistently brings new technologies and innovative medical practices to Hawai‘i, such as pioneering minimally invasive cardiac surgery and total joint replacement. In 2010, the American Heart Association recognized Straub in three areas of excellence: Coronary Artery Disease (Gold Award), Heart Failure (Silver Award) and Heart Attack (Bronze Award.)
The Case Management team puts great emphasis on helping each patient transition their health care treatment with an appropriate set of support tools and information. Our caring, professional staff provides timely medical and discharge management to meet clinical and service goals, and to provide an effective, appropriate continuum of care. We want to ensure that our patients receive the attention they need beyond the hospital walls, especially when they require care from several different organizations and other combinations of medical, financial or social interventions.
As the Registered Nurse Case Manager, you would ensure the considerate and confidential management of unique and high-risk patient cases by performing case management through direct referrals and reviews of medical records. This would include determining the appropriateness and medical necessity of admissions, continued hospital stay, and the use of ancillary services. You would also perform treatment plan assessments, discharge needs interviews, planning/coordination for high risk cases, and participate in organizational quality improvement activities. We are looking for an individual who is perceptive to patient needs, with outstanding organizational and communication skills and a commitment to delivering the highest quality health care to Hawai‘i’s people.
