About Assure Health: 
Founded by serial entrepreneurs and third time founders (with two exits), Assure Health is dedicated to improving healthcare by empowering patients and providers with people-focused, technology-enabled chronic disease management. Our programs keep patients healthy, provide the peace of mind that comes with regular clinician contact, prevent unnecessary hospitalizations, and offer better care that reduces overall costs. We’re not just a healthcare company. At Assure, we keep people healthy. Because we care.
The Role:
The Diabetes Nurse Practitioner (NP) will provide specialty level endocrine/diabetes care to a defined panel of patients using advanced Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) technology. Applying clinical expertise and knowledge of diabetes management, the Diabetes NP will use decision-making skills to deliver remote diabetes care. At the initial consultation, the NP will formulate and then execute an individualized diabetes care plan based on current clinical standards and specific patient characteristics with the support of a lead Endocrinologist.  Once a treatment plan is initiated, the follow-up outreach, education and titration will be delivered collaboratively by a care team that the Diabetes NP will lead.  This care team is composed of Registered Nurse Care Managers (RNs), Certified Diabetes Care Managers and Education Specialists (CDCESs), and patient coordinators, all of whom will work simultaneously to move patients to their targeted health goals.  The Diabetes NP will serve as a clinical resource and educator for the team with backing from the lead Endocrinologist who oversees the overall program and provides full support to all team members.
