Summary
An empathetic and creative thinker, the COVID-19 Case Manager supports community members requiring resource assistance and other support. The COVID-19 Case Management program is an arm of the Pandemic Health Navigator Program (PHNP), a grant-funded, short-term program focused on reducing the disparities of outcomes of COVID-19 seen in our community through education/outreach, resource coordination, and contact tracing support. COVID-19 Case managers receive referrals, complete intake interviews to evaluate needs, provide ongoing resource coordination/support for various health and social needs (e.g., primary healthcare, transportation, housing/rental assistance, food support, etc.), and register and schedule appointments in the AllVax system. COVID-19 Case Managers work closely with Contact Tracers, Community Health Workers, Health and Social Service providers, and Community Based Organizations to provide wrap-around services that encourage safe and healthy behaviors.
