What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Patient Care Coordinator in Holyoke:
"I wish I knew I was worth more money."
I took the same hourly rate of pay when went from direct care nurse to utilization review/patient care coordinator. I should have asked for 5 more dollars and hour at least.
Patient Care Coordinator in Bellevue:
Be aware, proactive, take initiative, be sincere, be empathetic, modulate your voice, speak distinctly, utilize business English in writing and speaking, keep a smile on your face when speaking on the phone.
Patient Care Coordinator in Los Gatos:
"Get clear job description."
My job involves many things beyond the original scope of the position as a PCC.
The plastic surgeons are wonderful people but by nature expect too much and want you to be perfect vs human.
Be sure to have firm parameters and clear job description.
Patient Care Coordinator in Santa Fe:
Make sure that you know a lot about insurance companies. When you take your course when I did there was not much out there at that time, also pay very close attention to your provider for every detaile.
