Our mobile assessors provide emergency triage and crisis assessment to determine, and co-facilitate, the required plan of care to ensure optimal safety and patient outcomes across the age and mental health disease spectrum. Our assessments may be conducted in emergency room settings, and other locations, and by tele-assessment. This position will work at both our Overland Park location and our Kansas City, MO location, with the primary location being Kansas City, MO.
Responsibilities of the mobile assessor include assessment and clear documentation of the determination of what course of care immediately meets the needs of the patient, coordination and facilitation of the patient's course of treatment as determined by the assessment, collaboration and communication inside an interdisciplinary team that includes physicians, emergency room providers and staff, community partners and providers, and departmental and inter-departmental teams. The mobile assessor/clinician will need to be familiar with and utilize all available resources in addressing the clients needs to ensure the best plan of care is available and facilitated.
