Nurse Care Navigators

Improve the health outcomes of your most at-risk patients and reduce the burden on staff when you rely on care navigation services, provided by registered nurses. You have access to this valuable resource as a physician or advanced practice provider who participates in Adventist HealthCare Physician Alliance, a clinically integrated network based in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

Role of Nurse Care Navigators

Nurse care navigators partner with your practice to drive down the cost of preventable hospitalizations and visits to the emergency department. These experienced registered nurses work one-on-one with your high-risk patients and their families, teaching them how to manage health conditions, get care and find local resources. Patients also learn how to access support from the Physician Alliance’s community partners, including social service agencies and nonprofit organizations.

Care Management by Experienced Nurse Care Navigators

Nurse care navigators with the clinically integrated network offers comprehensive care management services to high-risk and high-cost patients to help them achieve better health. The services include:

  • Medication management
  • Patient education
  • Coordinating referrals and appointments
  • Food, transportation and other resources

You Stay Informed

To enhance patient outcomes, nurse care navigators meet regularly with your practice to review topics such as:

  • Patient updates, hospital discharges and transitions of care
  • Maryland Primary Care Program (MDPCP) and CRISP Reporting Services health data
  • Quality metrics
  • Opportunities to close gaps in care
  • New resources

Expect to receive the information and insights you need to provide effective, cost-efficient care for your high-risk patients.

“Care managers were a phenomenal benefit to our practice. They allowed us to take care of the whole patient and the patient’s family in ways our small staff didn’t have the resources to do.”
