Yes, your ambulatory care experience will be invaluable. I worked 5 years in-patient (Peds), and then 17 years Primary Care (Peds, Family Practice, and Internal Med). I currently case management elderly and some younger adults, although we will soon be managing all age groups.
The field is still evolving, so you will probably be seeing a lot of changes in the coming years.
I recently accepted a new job as a Care Coordinator for primary care practices. I won't start for another month or so, so I have time to gain a little more knowledge. I don't know a whole lot about patient-centered medical home, but I would love to know more. Is anyone currently doing this? If so, what do you think of it? What do you do on a daily basis as Care Coordinator?
Absolutely. I rarely get out "on time" these days. In fact, this was the week from hell. But I still love my job.
Absolutely! I've only been doing it for 7 months now, and it is a lot of work. But work isn't "work" when you love what you do.
