CeCN’s national network of board-certified specialists provides rapid electronic consultations to primary care providers, improving access to specialty care for patients in medically underserved areas of the U.S. Approximately one in four visits to a community health center results in a request for specialty care, so e-consult demand for at-risk patients is booming. By “moving knowledge not patients”, CeCN eliminates geographic barriers to care, reduces health care disparities and leads to significant cost savings, better health outcomes and improved patient satisfaction. Developed by primary care physicians for primary care physicians, CeCN has been selected by government agencies, leading health plans and primary care practices to provide this highly efficient, effective service.
Community eConsult Network (CeCN) is seeking a motivated, experienced individual interested in joining a rapidly growing team of health care innovators improving access to specialty care and reducing inefficiency in the healthcare system. CeCN’s eConsult service links primary care providers with specialists in a wide range of disciplines. EConsults are asynchronous, non-face-to-face consultations between a primary care provider and a specialist that utilize secure messaging to exchange information. This process has significant benefits for patients and providers and allows more rapid access to needed knowledge and care -- and quicker triage for patients that may still need face to face care with a specialist. CeCN is expanding nationally and seeking a Specialty Network Manager to grow and strengthen its eConsult team. The Specialty Network Manager is responsible for recruiting, training, supervising, and maintaining a high quality network of eConsult specialists for CeCN and for collaborating with the CeCN senior leadership on all strategic planning matters related to specialty care. In addition, the position will oversee CeCN’s quality assurance and complain resolution process.
