The Ambulatory Nurse Case Manager for the Genetics Team comprehensively and actively maintains the care management and coordination needs of payer defined and/or payer enrolled populations of patients who meet designated inclusion criteria. This includes activities such as assessments, formal Case Management care plan development, establishing goals and intervention and monitoring/tracking. Through these activities, the Ambulatory Nurse Case Manager will partner with physician practices and the care management team related to the clinical and care coordination needs of the patient, as well as work with payers and community resources to develop and facilitate effective, efficient care delivery options for the patient across the continuum of care.
Children’s National Rare Disease Institute (CNRDI) is a first-of-its-kind center focused exclusively on advancing the care and treatment of children and adults with rare genetic diseases. We provide a medical home for patients and families seeking the most advanced care and expertise for rare genetic conditions that remain largely unknown to the general medical community.
With more than 8,500 visits annually and 12 physicians, Children’s National Hospital is home to the largest clinical genetics program in the United States.
We coordinate the multidisciplinary care of children with genetic, metabolic and undiagnosed disorders in collaboration with primary care physicians and specialists from other divisions at Children’s National. Additionally, every geneticist here works in concert with a genetic counselor to manage both the clinical and practical aspects of treatment.
