Beth Israel Lahey Health Mobile Integrated Health (MIH) Paramedic, 36 hours in Burlington, Massachusetts
When you join the growing BILH team, you're not just taking a job, you’re making a difference in people’s lives.
Day (United States of America)
The Mobile Integrated Health (MIH) Paramedic is an exciting opportunity to apply your knowledge and experience to acutely ill patients that are receiving their hospitalization at home. Once a patient is determined by the hospital to meet inpatient hospitalization criteria, the MIH Paramedic is dispatched to the patient’s home to set up their “hospital room” in the privacy of their own home. This involves establishing remote monitoring technology, conducting physical assessments, medication reconciliation, assisting with medication administration, and any other tasks deemed necessary for the patient as directed by the provider team. You will work in collaboration with an RN who functions as the patients' primary nurse and provider team that is responsible for the ongoing oversight and care of the patient, serving as their hands, eyes, and ears. Throughout the patient’s hospital course, you will be dispatched to patients’ homes to provide direct patient care as directed by the primary care team to ensure patients continue to receive the same, if not better, high-quality care they would receive in a brick-and-mortar hospital.
The MIH Paramedic is supported in the medical decisions and treatments they provide. Patients have direct access to their primary care team 24 hours a day through the technology platform in their home. The MIH Paramedic utilizes this same technology as they provide patient care. The MIH Paramedic role is an exciting opportunity to be pioneers in a new innovative care model of treating acutely ill patients in the comfort of their own home leading to better patient outcomes. Come join a team of passionate caregivers in a patient centered care model.
