Overview

Imagine if you will….

 

You visit your small panel of patients in the comfort of their own homes. You have time to ensure your patients’ health issues are addressed. You create a friendly and trusting relationship with each patient and his or her family. You have the support of a collaborative, multidisciplinary clinical team who works in the field also. And you do it all at no added cost to the patient. 

 

Sound too good to be true? It’s not—and here’s why.

 

Landmark is not a fee-for-service practice. We profit only when we create successful patient outcomes and high levels of satisfaction for our patients. As a result, our clinical teams can spend quality time caring for a smaller number of patients. Our business model allows us to give our patients all the time and care that they need. We’ve been very successful at this. Landmark is now the nation’s largest risk-based, in-home medical group, with operations in markets across the US.

Responsibilities

As a Physician, your duties will be to:

  • Function as day-to-day clinical leader, providing decision support to nurse practitioners and directing the multidisciplinary team
  • Perform 4-6 preventive visits daily to optimize chronic conditions, assess home environment, educate patients and caregivers, and develop proactive care plans
  • Perform urgent care visits in the home to avoid unnecessary ED transfers and hospital admissions
  • Leverage the support of nurse care manager, behavioral health, social work, pharmacy, and dietician to meet patients’ medical, biopsychosocial, and financial needs
  • In situations where there is no existing PCP for the patient, assume responsibility as PCP to drive care and continuity for patients
  • In situations where there is an existing PCP for the patient, help to co-manage the patient with the PCP and serve as an extension of clinical care into the home
  • Coordinate with other physicians across the continuum of care, including PCP, hospitalist, and SNF providers to smooth transitions and prevent readmissions
  • Coordinate and offer medical direction to community-based organizations touching the lives of our patients, including housing and caregiver agencies, health plan contracted social work services, home health, adult day health centers, and behavioral health

 

 

Qualifications

  • Board Certified / Board Eligible Physician, preferably Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, or Emergency Medicine
  • Doctor of Medicine M.D. or Doctor of Ostepathy D.O. from an accredited educational institution
  • Experience in Geriatrics
  • DEA registration
  • Experience managing complex, polychronic patients and comfort with high acuity
  • Dedication to transforming care for the sickest and frailest in a marginalized population
  • Eagerness to work with a diverse and multidisciplinary team
