About Us
One Medical is a membership-based primary care platform challenging the industry status quo by making quality care more affordable, accessible and enjoyable. But this isn’t your average doctor’s office. We’re on a mission to transform healthcare, which means tackling the frustrations of everyone involved — from patients and providers to employers and health networks.

Across the country, our members enjoy access to comprehensive care at more than 80 locations across twelve cities (and counting!) as well as 24/7 access to virtual care. We’ve reached some exciting milestones this year, but our work is far from over. As we continue to grow and broaden our impact, we’re building a diverse, driven and empathetic team, while working hard to cultivate an environment where everyone can thrive.

The Opportunity

As a Patient Support Specialist, you will be an ambassador for our patients working directly with them over the phone and via messaging as well as working with internal and external stakeholders on their behalf. With your mastery of the virtual human connection, our Electronic Health Records System (1Life), and our processes, you will remove barriers to care and promote collaboration and resolution of open tasks all with an eye towards exceptional patient and team member experiences. You are the first line of defense for seamless care coordination to ensure our patient's needs are met outside of in-office care. Additionally, you will be the first point of contact for patient feedback, as well as provide any other support as requested by the Shift Lead, Manager, or our provider team. This role is based in Phoenix, AZ.

You are a strong team player and use your innovative problem solving skills to tackle various tasks and challenges. You have a strong grasp of verbal and written communication. You are able to identify opportunities and deliver on customer-centric solutions while using empathy, focus, and compassion in all interactions with patients, teammates, and stakeholders. You bring self-awareness to your daily work to utilize your strengths and develop your areas of opportunity. You thrive in cultures that focus on feedback and growth and are nimble in their approach to respond to the needs of the patients and team. You have an unwavering drive to help and serve others and create amazing moments for our members and teammates. If this sounds like you, we would love to connect.

What you'll likely work on:

Use impeccable C-I-CARE (a framework containing the key elements of a great interaction and effective communication that we use with patients and each other) in all patient interactions and ensure a positive virtual (phone, messaging or in-system interaction) experience with a focus on things such as medical records, authorizations, referrals, and coordinating care among our members’ care partners like pharmacies, testing laboratories, and specialists.

Master our technology suite including but not limited to RingCentral, Slack, G-suite, Zoom, and our Electronic Medical Record System 1Life, in order to interact with team members and patients and complete daily work

What you’ll need:

At least 1 year of experience in customer or patient facing service roles
