The Disease Case Manager RN (DCM RN) blends the mission of AHF with Disease Case Management, utilizing strong nursing clinical skills and an understanding of the Ryan White Care Act Program within their specific area. With a caring and knowledgeable focus, you will work with our providers and healthcare center team so that every Ryan White patient receives the support they require and access to available resources. This will include providing education and assistance so that eligibility for the program is understood. Working directly within the Healthcare Center, you will meet with patients and complete Health Risk/Needs Assessments, develop Service/Action/Care Plans, and provide ongoing education to patients so that they understand their diagnoses and their medications. Working with your team allows for full collaboration, so that all aspects of your patient’s health and psychosocial needs are met. In this way you will support the patient’s ability to better understand their health status so that they can work to achieve their healthcare goals.
By utilizing core principles of nursing, you will meet our patients where they are, identify strengths and opportunities for growth and assist them with realistic goal setting. With your skills of collaboration and engagement, you will bring the essence of the Ryan White Care Act - the safety net for the uninsured HIV/AIDS patients - to our most vulnerable population. Health Risk/Needs Assessments, Action/Service/Care Plans, referrals and support will directly contribute to AHF’s success in meeting the deliverables of our Ryan White contract. Beyond the scope of the contract, your work contributes measures established by the HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) Measures and the Department of Health and Human Services.
