Job Description

  • Would you like to use your clinical knowledge to improve consistent service delivery?
  • Are you a self-starter who loves to be involved in projects from start to finish?
  • Can you translate complex clinical information into every day English?
  • Clinical Advisor 6 month fixed term role - Nationwide locations closes 24 April 2018

Providing people with care, respect and positive outlooks is what you do best. At ACC it's what we do best too - for clients throughout New Zealand and for those who make up our team. That's why when you join us you'll enjoy great scope to keep helping people - and every chance to help yourself to a very worthwhile and rewarding career.

ACC's Clinical Services is committed to a new strategic direction focused on improving clinical leadership and credibility. Paramount to this is consistency and quality of clinical advice and improving engagement and influence with the health sector, which is where you step in

We have a fantastic 6 month fixed term opportunity for an experienced Clinical Advisor to join ACC's Clinical Advisory Panel (CAP). As a Clinical Advisor within the CAP you will be primarily involved in the provision of clinical advice regarding surgery invoicing, appropriateness of surgery codes, implant costs, and non-core surgery costs. Depending on your skillset, you may also be involved in the provision of clinical advice to inform ACC's decision making on surgical entitlements, supporting these decisions through the Review process where necessary, preparing CAP advice for cases proceeding to hearings in the District Court, and involvement in a variety of CAP projects.

An in-depth knowledge of orthopaedic conditions and their aetiology coupled with the ability to make sense of complex clinical information and then translate it into plain English for our customers will be hugely beneficial.

You will be a self-starter who loves to pick up a project and follow it through effectively from conception right through to implementation. Great organisational skills and a proven ability to work under pressure are essential as you will be assisting the team to meet its customer's expectations. Along with this, you will be engaging with internal and external stakeholders on a regular basis, so outstanding communication skills will be the key to success. The CAP work on the basis of a consensus of opinion therefore the ability to be a team player cannot be understated.

In the past, we ve had theatre nurses, anaesthetic technicians, etc. come in and excel in this role. We re open to hearing from people with varying clinical backgrounds.

If this sounds like the challenge you're after, we'd love to hear from you!

This is a full-time role, however, we will consider a part-time work arrangement for the right candidate.  This position can be worked in any of our major metro centres in New Zealand, although a Dunedin home location would be ideal. Please indicate which city centre you would like to work out of in your cover letter.
