Who we are:
As our co-founders transitioned from military to civilian life, they encountered barriers and inefficiencies navigating the most basic health and social services. Together, they set out to improve that experience for others. Recognizing that social care is essential for better health outcomes, they embarked on a mission to connect people to the care they need, when they need it, in communities across the country. Unite Us has developed an intuitive and seamless technology solution that goes beyond the traditional referral method. We work side-by-side with local organizations, and track data and outcomes to build coordinated care networks that support all aspects of community health. Unite Us is boldly changing the nation’s care delivery system. If you want to do well and do good, join Unite Us– we can build healthier communities together.
The Unite Us Network Coordinator is responsible for supporting their community by utilizing the Unite Us Platform and offering the support and guidance needed to provide quality care coordination. The Network Coordinator has a dual role that interacts directly with clients seeking services and with the partners that provide resources and support to the community.
Network Coordinators are Unite Us Platform experts, are embedded in their community and can provide guidance to partners to support the connectivity with community resources (for example, senior centers, homeless shelters, food pantries). In addition to connecting with community-based organizations and health care systems, Network Coordinators have the ability to conduct client needs assessments, assist clients in developing a care management plan, help clients complete applications for benefits (for example, insurance, food assistance programs), and general administrative support (for example, financial and health records, scheduling appointments, getting prescriptions filled).
Unite Us believes that an individual's health journey can start anywhere in the community and you can help us support both the client and network partner’s care journey experience.
