Physician II - Board Certified

Company: Alameda Health System
Location: Oakland
Posted on: June 8, 2021

Job Description:


Highland Hospital, located in Oakland, California, is the largest facility of Alameda Health System which serves a diverse patient population in California's East Bay Area. As part of Alameda County's safety net, we provide quality, accessible care to our community's most vulnerable patients. Our providers and staff are dedicated to our patients and would love to welcome others who share our mission!

We are currently recruiting for a Full Time Board Certified Physician (Adult or Family Medicine) to join our team in a primarily telehealth position. This provider will be the point of "terminal escalation" for our centralized Call Center nurse triage. The Alameda Health System Call Center triage nurses currently handle incoming symptom triage calls for patients with emergent symptoms and COVID-related symptoms. The triage services will expand over the coming year to incorporate all symptom triage requests for patients calling in. At present, there are three to four escalations daily from Nurse Triage to a provider of the day. This provider will replace the provider of the day and assist nurse triage in determining what level of care is needed for acute patients who call in. In addition to serving as a consult service for the nurse triage team, the provider may conduct telehealth visits (especially for patients in Southern Alameda County) or live visits in the Urgent Care clinic and refer to the ER as appropriate. In addition, there are typically around three patients daily who need urgent access but cannot be seen in their home clinics who the provider would be expected to manage. Further expansion of duties is possible as our Call Center grows in scope and ability. If you are interested in this opportunity, we encourage you to apply!
