Patient Care Coordinator
At Talkiatry, we believe mental health is health. We’re a successful, high growth organization creating the gold standard in mental healthcare and helping people live their best lives. More specifically, we’re solving the behavioral health crisis in America by focusing on high-quality in-network care and proprietary technology that redefines how patients access and receive psychiatric care. The result? Through a personalized approach, we meet the needs of patients, physicians, and insurance partners while driving down costs and improving care.
The Patient Care Coordinator provides an excellent experience for patients and providers by fielding and responding to their requests. They help keep provider schedules full and optimized, and guide patients through the intake process. They also ensure all patients are matched appropriately to a provider, and take care of administrative tasks like faxes, emails, and authorizations.
