COVID-19 UPDATE

A Day in the Life of a CareThrough ED Navigator

Achieve Value-Based Growth with a Navigator Embedded Within the CareTeam.

Shift Note Review
The notes from the previous shift detail follow-up activities and action items for the incoming navigator. A patient admitted to the hospital from the ED requested smoking cessation information. Print .pdf and have it transferred to hospitalist provider.
Check-in with Rounding Providers
Connect with providers to see if there are current patients in need of navigation support, from printing discharge forms to arranging transportation.
Schedule Referral Appointment
Recognizing the need to schedule an appointment before the patient leaves the facility, utilize proprietary software to find an in-network provider.
