Medical Assistant/Certified Medical Assistant
Who We Are
We are Imagine Pediatrics, a devoted and compassionate, multi-disciplinary pediatrician-led medical group that is creating a world where every child with complex medical conditions gets the care and support they deserve. Energized by our mission to reimagine pediatric health care, we are pioneering virtual-first care services that include care coordination and around-the-clock access to complex-care clinicians from home. We don’t replace a child's existing care team. Instead, we collaborate to deliver continuous support to kids, so they can spend less time in the hospital and more time thriving at home and in their communities.
Every day we boldly challenge old approaches and seek out new and better ways to improve the health and lives of children with medical complexity. In partnership with caregivers, providers, and health plans, we break down the barriers that stand between families and quality care for their children. We know we can’t solve every challenge in the lives of these kids, but we can work tirelessly to give them, their families, and other caregivers the help and relief they need, right when they need it. We know a better approach to pediatric health care is within reach, and we are committed to seizing it today.
What We Live By
We’re guided by our five core values:
- Children first. We put the best interests of children above all. We are uncompromising in our commitment to improving the lives of children and families by bringing the best care to them.
- Earn trust. We cherish the trusting relationships we build with the children and families we serve, our partners, and each other. We seek first to understand and speak honestly.
- Innovate today. We refuse to accept the way things have always been done. Children and families are waiting for our help and their bravery demands that we relentlessly challenge assumptions to develop new approaches.
- Embrace humanity. We lead with empathy and authenticity, presuming competence and good intentions. When we stumble, we use the opportunity to learn and grow stronger.
- One team, diverse perspectives. We work alongside families as one team towards a shared purpose. We champion diversity and acknowledge the contributions of others.
What You’ll Do
The Medical Assistant provides both clinical and clerical support and ensures the provision of quality and compassionate evidence-based care in a virtual Value-Based Care environment. In this position, you will:
- Accept incoming phone calls and return calls from patients involving clinical inquiries for responsible providers, perform protocol-based triage as appropriate, and route phone calls in the form of a phone note document in the EHRS to the provider for review and instructions

- Call patients deemed to be at risk for a “no-show” prior to their appointment as well as new patients establishing care for their onboarding visit to remind them of both the patient’s and Imagines’ responsibilities; contact "no-show" patients and inquire as to their status and need for rescheduling, including assessment of barriers to care and initiation of appropriate social service referrals
- Initiate completion of forms for review and final signature by provider (disability forms, home health orders, durable medical equipment and supply requests, disease status letters)
- Assist care team in regular completion of reports that will allow it to manage and assess the health needs of the patient population; assist care team in recognizing patients who are members of a "vulnerable population" and provide appropriate social service or community-based referrals
