Oak Street Health takes a team-based approach to providing outstanding patient care. Our Care Teams, consisting of a Provider, Nurse, MA and Medical Social Worker, build individual relationships across a panel of 500-800 patients. The Care Team is responsible for delivering excellent, high-touch, primary care, and coordinating the care of our patients throughout the healthcare delivery system. We have support team members that assist with specific tasks and/or cases, such as Behavioral Health Specialist and Care Coordinators.
Community Health Workers are an important part of our Care Teams. A Community Health Worker is a patient’s advocate or liaison when in a community setting. Building trust and promoting encouragement are two key objectives. High levels of flexibility, attention to detail, and problem solving are required to be successful. You will be expected to build relationships with Oak Street Health patients, assist with managing low risk members’ care plans, perform proactive phone and in-person outreach to our members based on their care needs, support Care Team decision making, participate in weekly care team meetings, and coordinate clinical and complementary services needed to provide a high quality health care experience from Oak Street Health. Community Health Workers will report to the Center Medical Social Worker.
