New Frontier Mobile Diagnostics is seeking a Cardiac Ultrasound Technologist interested in providing compassionate, on-site care for patients in senior and disability care facilities.
We want passionate, long-term employees that are willing to grow with a fast-paced startup that knows happy, motivated employees make for satisfied patients. We may not have all the bells and whistles, yet, but we’re building the practice around solid employee engagement and interaction. We’ll take the roadblocks out of your way, and let you get back to your passion of helping people.
Using GE Vivid portable ultrasounds, the Cardiac Ultrasound Technologist performs a variety of diagnostic medical sonography procedures as prescribed by a physician, either with interpretation back to the prescribing physician or for interpretation by a Radiologist.
NFMD has partnered with a leading, regional cardiology physicians group, and it is anticipated that the majority of procedures will be echocardiograms, although we have the equipment to support other procedures such as Vascular, MSK and OB/GYN services. The Cardiac Ultrasound Technologist may need to set up and assist in invasive procedures when ultrasound is used as a guidance tool, as requested by a physician.
Knowledge of patient scheduling software, onsite patient intake, HIPAA-compliance, and proper equipment maintenance knowledge is a must. The Cardiac Ultrasound Technologist performs all tasks necessary to provide onsite quality patient care, including knowledge of Basic Life Support (BLS). Technology support will be provided, but you should be adequately comfortable with the use of technology in a variety of environments and situations.
The ideal Cardiac Ultrasound Technologist should be self-motivated and independent, understanding the procedural side of the practice while being willing to work with management to learn the business side. This opportunity could include ownership, for the right individual.
We’ll help you set a schedule to your liking, and pay mileage to network facilities. If you have physicians you would like to work with, great, but NFMD will be primarily responsible for securing network partners.
We want people who work smart, providing quality care while maintaining a balance of lifestyle and profitability.
