RN Intake Coordinator - Kidney Liver Transplant
Department: University Hospitals
Full/Part Time/PRN: Full-Time
UT Southwestern's Kidney and Liver Transplant Program has a career opportunity for a nurse to act as the first point of contact for physicians referring their transplant patients to our program.
The Inkate Coordinators simplify things for physicians and patients, starting from the initial point of contact.
Intake Coordinators make sure the important initial stages of patient referrals or hospital-to-hospital transfers go as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Skills as an excellent communicator to receive and transfer data will be key.
Coordination: Depending on the patient’s transplant need, the transplant intake coordinators will take primary responsibility for obtaining the necessary medical records and images, coordinating the initial insurance and financial screenings, and arranging the scheduling for the patient’s first appointment.
Information: When patients have questions about the different phases of the transplant process, Intake Coordinators will give them an overview of what to expect and make sure they have all information in order before their first visit.
Physician Relations: Maintaining direct communication with physicians and serving as their point person is a key part of this role.
