Responsibilities

The Medical Care Manager (MCM) blends the mission of AHF with Medical Care Management, utilizing their experience, skills and education together with a thorough understanding of the Ryan White Care Act Program within their specific area. With a caring and knowledgeable focus, you will work with our providers and healthcare center team so that every Ryan White patient receives the support they require and access to available resources. This will include providing education and assistance so that eligibility for the program is understood. Working directly within the Healthcare Center, you will meet with patients and complete Health Risk/Needs Assessments, develop Service/Action/Care Plans, and provide ongoing education to patients so that they understand their diagnoses and their medications. For Ryan White contracts that combine psychosocial needs within Medical Care Management, you will understand mental health needs and basic needs such as housing, food, and clothing and develop relationships with programs and agencies serving those needs and facilitate referrals, support and assistance for your patients who lack those services.

 

By utilizing your care management experience, you will meet our patients where they are, identify strengths and opportunities for growth and assist them with realistic goal setting. With your skills of collaboration and engagement, you will bring the essence of the Ryan White Care Act - the safety net for the uninsured HIV/AIDS patients - to our most vulnerable population. By establishing Health Risk/Needs Assessments, Action/Service/Care Plans, referrals and support, your work will directly contribute to AHF’s success in meeting the deliverables of our Ryan White contract. Beyond the scope of the contract, your work contributes measures established by the HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) Measures and the Department of Health and Human Services.

 

The MCM is often the liaison between provider and patient and is able to facilitate the shift from leaving the exam room to implementing the optimum plan of care and putting it into action. Providing brief interventions focused on a long term achievable goal, the patient and the MCM work together each step of the way towards viral suppression, better health outcomes and quality of life.
