Scheduling at UW Health is undergoing a redesign to better serve our patients. As part of this redesign our scheduling positions are changing as well! Scheduling positions at UW Health will eventually fall into 3 types of positions: - Appointment Center positions these schedulers help patients over the phone and will be able to help patients with multiple types of appointments - On-site check-in/check-out staff these schedulers help patients in person in the clinics, and also place outbound phone calls between helping patients in-clinic - On-site Appointment Center positions these schedulers are located on site at the clinic, but primarily do phone-based work. While doing phone-based work they will sit at a desk that is not patient-facing, but will come to the check-in/check-out desks to help patients in person when the check-in/check-out scheduler is away from desk (i.e. breaks, lunches, etc.) If you are hired into a department that has already gone through the redesign process you will be hired into one of these positions. However, if you are hired into a department that has not yet undergone the redesign process, it is likely that the scope of your role and/or the location you report to may change once your area goes through redesign. Physical Requirements: Sedentary: Ability to lift up to 10 pounds maximum and occasionally lifting and/or carrying such articles as dockets, ledgers and small tools. Although a sedentary job is defined as one, which involves sitting, a certain amount of walking and standing is often necessary in carrying out job duties. Jobs are sedentary if walking and standing are required only occasionally and other sedentary criteria are met. W ork Schedule: 100% FTE, 40 hours per week. Scheduled shifts are 8 hour shifts with start times varying between 7:00 AMand 8:30 AM, Monday through Friday. Hours may vary based on the operational needs of the department.
