About the Role

Referral Coordinators (RCs) play a pivotal role in managing client-related communication and coordination with outpatient practices, residential treatment centers, hospitals, and specialty providers. Specifically, RCs are tasked with greeting clients who are ineligible for care at Charlie Health, making outbound referrals for clients during the intake process, and supporting the partnerships team in cultivating strong relationships with trusted providers nationwide. RCs are instrumental in bridging gaps in the continuum of care.

RCs are responsible for facilitating outbound referrals based on needs identified during the intake process. These may include referrals to lower or higher levels of care, nutrition professionals, pain management specialists, and external psychiatry and/or medication management providers. Additionally, RCs are accountable for guiding clients and their families through the process of establishing care with providers and facilitating connections with the care team.

To ensure that every client at Charlie Health receives the necessary care, Referral Coordinators collaborate closely with our partnerships and outreach team. Together, these teams forge relationships with local and national resources to establish a robust referral network comprising high-quality providers. RCs participate in regular meetings with our partnerships and outreach teams to pinpoint potential gaps in our referral network and devise strategic solutions.
