Health Facilitator - Virginia
Part Time: This position is currently offered on a part-time basis.
Interested in Social Determinants of Health (SDoH)?
According to the CDC, SDoH are the complex, integrated and overlapping social structures and economic systems that are responsible for many health inequities. These social structures and economic systems include the social environment, physical environment, health services, and structural and societal factors.
What is the RVA Community Cares Model?
Sometimes patients’ other needs (SDoH) can affect how well they are able to deal with their health issues. The RVA Community Cares Model will test whether systematically identifying and addressing Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries’ health-related social needs through screening, referral, and community navigation services impacts total health care costs and reduces inpatient and outpatient utilization.The RVA Community Cares program can connect patients with community service providers to help them with SDoH, such as:
• Living Situation – homelessness, unstable housing, unfit housing due to pests, mold, etc.
• Food Insecurity
• Transportation (even non-medical transportation)
• Utilities Assistance
• Personal Safety – domestic, sexual or other violence
How can I help?
RVA Community Cares is looking for a part time health facilitator to conduct screenings that identify Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries in need, then help them connect with community resources for assistance. The health facilitator will have the opportunity to learn more about SDoH, using systematic screening tools to identify populations in need, and how navigators can be used to help patients effectively address their needs.
