  • Provide administrative, operational, and managerial support to the direct nursing team via a team of three Nurse Leads
  • Manage clinical escalations
  • Enable the nursing team to best support our members through supportive training, coaching, cross-team collaboration, and quality improvement initiatives
  • Improve Thyme Care’s service offerings by assisting in the identification, design, implementation, monitoring, and iteration of clinical processes and their supporting content, often working cross-functionally to appropriately deliver this effectively

  • Drive the output, impact, and performance management of the nursing team

To hit the ground running, we expect this person to have a proven track record in leadership and mentorship with experience in healthcare leading high-performing, hourly clinical employees. Ideally, you will have experience working in a setting that leverages data and technology to support patient care. We also expect you to see problems as opportunities and are often the first to step up, fix, and overcome them.

After your first three months, you will:

  • Know our Nursing Team policies and procedures, escalation pathways, communications best practices, and documentation standards backward and forward, and actively share ideas on improving them.
  • Be on the path to becoming an expert on our Thyme Care systems, tools, technology, partners, and expectations.
  • Directly manage, coach, and serve as an escalation point to a team of Oncology Nurse Leads who oversee a team of nurses engaged in direct member care.
  • Contribute to the needs assessment and strategy for pursuing quality assurance accreditations, like the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), and/or successful completion of contractual audit
  • Have built strong, trusting relationships with your team and Care Delivery leadership, where listening and empathy are the foundation for every interaction.
  • Facilitate nurse-led team meetings and contribute to daily huddles and case conferences to drive member engagement, enable our Care Teams, and ultimately establish targeted support plans.
  • Refine nurse recruitment across existing and new clinical roles by understanding the skills, qualities, and experience that set a candidate up for success and participate in the oncology nurse interview loop.
  • Track nurse-driven goals, metrics, and OKRs and conduct root-cause analyses to identify gaps in knowledge, data, or procedures.
  • Provide clinical expertise in medical, behavioral health, and crisis management.
  • Put together quality and productivity metrics for all nursing team members in collaboration with Nurse Team Leads, then develop coaching and remediation plans for direct reports accordingly.
  • Provide support on building and maintaining resources, optimizing schedules, and contributing to updating staffing requirements, project initiatives, and policies and procedures.
  • Be available for urgent clinical escalations and clinical consult support.
  • Develop strategies to promote culturally competent care and close the health literacy gap.

WHAT LEADS TO SUCCESS
