Telehealth Physician Practitioner for Complex Illness Care

Contractor – part time remote

With option to hire or remain on as a contractor after that point.

Competitive pay, equity stake for those who are hired on after 6 mos.

Position is fully remote, with the option to do some home visits for particularly disabled patients in your local area, if desired.

We are seeking:

  • A board certified physician with a minimum of 2 years of experience in Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Primary Care, Neurology (inpatient or outpatient), Cardiology (inpatient or outpatient), PM&R, or functional medicine
  • Physicians who are licensed in any of the following states: California, New York — additional state telehealth or full licenses are a plus!
  • Physicians who are motivated by RTHM’s mission to integrate research into clinical care for complex illness to learn everything we can from every step of the care journey to drive development of better testing & treatment for poorly understood diseases, starting with Long COVID/PASC.
  • A curious, detail-oriented individual who enjoys learning and problem solving both independently and with a team, and is willing to research and reach out for support on patient cases when needed
  • A compassionate individual who genuinely enjoys helping people and is able to build rapport with patients easily, recognize & adapt their interaction style & plan for patients who may struggle with cognitive impairments, post exertional malaise, severe sensitivity to bright lights or loud sounds, or disillusionment with the healthcare system.
  • Someone who is able to balance allowing patients to feel heard with staying on time with visits by tactfully maintaining boundaries.
  • Someone understanding & open-minded about illnesses that are not fully medically understood yet, who doesn’t jump to somatization as the cause when an illness is multi-symptom in nature and evolving.
  • A provider dedicated to providing a positive care experience via telemedicine for people who need help for a condition that is still being understood, many of whom have had less-than-positive interactions with healthcare since they came down with long COVID.
  • Care providers who are flexible and interested in working in a telemedicine environment as part of a healthcare/research startup company. Providers will be playing a role in helping shape the direction, culture and impact of the company as it grows! There will be frequent change, product improvements, and it is helpful if providers are comfortable using new technology and software.
  • Computer skills are helpful: including typing speed, email, web-based research, working in several browser or provider interface windows.

Optional:

  • Multiple state licenses are a plus!
  • Experience participating in research studies or clinical trials
  • Additional training in Functional Medicine

  • Feel comfortable supporting the management of bleeding complications in patients on anticoagulation and reporting adverse events to the RTHM study principal investigator when they occur (there will be clear protocols for this)
  • Remotely support NPs in the triage, diagnosis and treatment of patients via telehealth, including: reviewing a pre-written health chronology, pre-filled questionnaire replies, pre-filled vitals with patients to confirm accuracy, inquire about more potentially urgent diagnoses and create a step by step workup and treatment plan for patients (facilitated by RTHMs decision support algorithm & research study protocols), analyzing patient responses to treatments and changing plans when necessary, considering cost-effective treatment modalities, and assisting in care coordination with other members of the RTHM team (MA, therapist). Responding to patient questions that are not answerable by the medical assistant or therapist through the EHR portal.
  • Reviewing serial vitals, symptom tracking, medication tracking data and incorporating it into the plan at each visit.
