The RN is responsible for coordinating a variety of patient wellness and chronic illness activities for the clinic's entire patient population. Success will be measured by the results of the outcome performance measures of the population of patients in the clinic. (eg. Patient Satisfaction, ACO, HCC, clinic quality dashboards). The RN acts in a clinical leadership role utilizing concepts of critical thinking and creative problem solving to ensure positive outcomes in the delivery of clinical care.
