The Advanced Practice Clinician (NP or PA) on the Rapid Response Team (RRT) provides short term, episodic enhanced primary care to a flexible panel of dually-eligible members from both the SCO and One Care population.

The RRT APC also serves as a clinical content and patient face-to-face engagement expert to support mobile and telephonic teams in the palliative/ end of life care, chronic disease management, behavioral health prescribing, pain management, and other urgent issues. The RRT APC will provide short-term, episodic chronic disease management, make urgent visits, promote preventative care and wellness, and provide end of life/palliative care. The role also includes performing a discrete set of care management/care coordination functions, including the adjustment of the member-centric care plan and authorization of appropriate durable medical equipment and services.
