pt-time assistant, re:Mind Project

Posted by on September 23, 2013

We are in search of a student for a paid internship helping to form and implement a prize winning public health policy initiative.  The project, called re:Mind, is a text message reminder service that hospital discharge planners will use to help patients leaving the hospital to get to their first outpatient appointment, thereby reducing no-shows, keeping patients in care, and reducing readmission rates.  We are forming a non-profit and have partnered with Community and Behavioral Health, the non-profit hired by the City of Philadelphia to administer behavioral health care to the city’s 450,000 Medicaid recipients, to roll out and implement the initiative.  CBH will incorporate re:Mind into their pay for performance metrics.  We seek a highly motivated and responsible intern to work with an interdisciplinary team to oversee the implementation of the project, liaise with CBH on project roll out, interface with web site developers to trouble shoot problems, and train hospital discharge planners as various hospital sites around the city. Project management and teaching experience a plus. Ideal for any student interested in social work, health policy, non-profit, start-up, mental health care, social justice. Pay will be $20/hour, we anticipate 5-10 hours/week with some on-site work (at implementing hospitals). Please contact Molly Viscardi at [email protected] with any questions.
