Does anybody out there know of any national companies that offer home-based telephone triage positions? I am well-experienced in phone triage but recently moved to an area with no triage jobs. I have one lead--Intellicare in... Read More

    Hello, I have a question. What is home based triage and how does it work. I would love to have a job I can do at home that has to do with nursing. I know this doesn't apply to the original post but I would like to know.
    Thanks,
    mtymom

    P.S. Can LPN's do it too or is it just RN's?

    i do see an ad for disease management at intellicare. I already have 9 years of telephone triage experience and our company uses their software. i am however looking for days and do not really want to work from home. anyone tell me how much earned time you get in a year and how soon you can use it. specifics about holiday pay. disease management is it straight days? i have also had an talked to another company but have yet to get into the actual company as they interview by phone and was offered a salary even. however due to illness of a hiring person it has been put off. in the meantime I am getting offers in the hospital network i work for but the jobs are not my first choice. my call times are already 8 minutes. i did get tired of picking up the slack for the slow workers but this was triage and it was evenings/ weekends ect.... i have been doing telephone disease managment for a small caseload for less than a year and have kept this part of my job and have stepped away from the triage part in the office because i am needed at home in the evenings and weekends. it has got to the point i can't work the off shifts due to my children and my youngest child is finally in school all day so i can work days. anyone with any suggestions about benefits or anything i would appreciate it. i also am looking to get into a company that i can move up the ladder as i have not all this time due to my children. i have over 20 years of experience also

    Guardian Angels...do you work for McKesson? Where are they located and what is a Judge group? I applied with McK over a year ago and never heard from them.

    Also, how do you keep patients focused...what do you say?....to keep your call time down to 10 min or less?

    My name is Trish, and this is my first post.
    I used to work for Tokos, which became Matria. It was specifically for OB pts. Most of them did home uterine monitoring and we (at a call center) read their strips and triaged as appropriate. We had a case load of 50-60 pts, and spoke to the same patients for weeks or sometimes months. I LOVED this job (especially since I got to develop a relationship with the patients)! Unfortunately, at least at that time (mid 90s, you had to work in a call center, which got to be a pain, since it was 90 minutes each way from home.)
    Anyone out there work for Matria, or a similar company?
    Thanks,
    Trish

    Well, I took a paycut to work from home. I think the pay would depend on where you are located in the country and on one's experience.

    At my last job I made 50,000 a year, and that was with some overtime. My current job is less.

    I would quess in most areas it's less than hospital based nurses, maybe on par with clinic nurses?


    I only have 3 months (yes, 3 months) of med surg experience and find that I really do not like working in the hospitals. How can I get into the home base triage business. Are there any training or certificate programs that can get me in the door. Thanks for any help you can offer.

    First of all you need to stick it out for at least 1 year. Then I would look for a nursing job in a large practice to get some well rounded experience. Most companies are looking for an RN with 3 plus years of experience. Another option is finishing your year in the hospital and then working in home health nursing for 2 years. Thats another good way to get your foot in the door for disease management.

    Thanks for the advice. It seems that I can not do anything without that one year of experience in the hospital.

    I work from home for a small company based in SF. There are 18 nurses working from home, have to have high speed internet but it's great. After hours and weekends so most of the nurses use as a second job. The pay is ok, btw 25-30/hr but most of us enjoy the freedom. The jobs are out, just have to always be on alter.
