About Vidant Health
Vidant Health is a regional health system serving 29 counties in eastern North Carolina. We are working every day to improve the health of the 1.4 million people we serve. Vidant Health is made up of 8 hospitals, physician practices, home health, hospice, wellness centers and other health care services. Vidant Medical Center is affiliated with the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University. As a major resource for health services and education, Vidant Health strives to support local medical communities and to work with providers throughout the region to deliver quality care. Our goal is to enhance services that are available locally and to eliminate barriers involving time, distance and lack of awareness that sometimes prevent patients from receiving the care they need.
The Nurse Care Manager is responsible for coordination of the plan of care through collaboration with the provider, the interdisciplinary team, the patient and family.
The Nurse Care Manager facilitates the plan of care with the underlying objective of enhancing the quality of patient care, optimizing clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction while managing the cost of care. In addition, the Nurse Care Manager helps drive change by identifying areas where performance improvement is needed (e.g., day to day workflow, education, process improvements and patient satisfaction).
The Nurse Care Manager is accountable for a designated patient caseload and plans effectively in order to meet patient needs, manage the length of service, promote efficient utilization of resources and ensure a well organized and safe plan of care is established for every patient.
