Award Description: With this award, we will create two front desk positions, one finance position, one new dentist, one new dental assistant, all previously unbudgeted positions. We also plan to retain the Office Coordinator's position to Data Manager once we install our new patient management system.
Project Description: Prior to award of this ARRA grant, we received a grant from the NC Office of Rural Health to complete an open area at our dental site, adding two new operatories to serve dental pediatrics. The dental renovation began in April 2009. With the award of this grant, we hired a bi-lingual front office patient services representative on a part time status, a previously unbudgeted position. In a relatively short period, we determined ample work was available for full time hours and that person was brought to full time status on 6/1/09. In April, we began our search for an accounts payable/purchasing person, another newly created position with duties which were previously performed by the CFO and other staff as available. This position was filled on 6/2/09. This person is also responsible for all tracking for ARRA and HCQR reports. On 8/24/09, we hired another bi-lingual front office patient services representative at our medical site. In September we located a new dentist who was hired on 9/21/09.
Jobs Summary: Two bi-lingual front desk patient services representatives, one accounts payable/purchasing person and one dentist. (Total jobs reported: 2)
Project Status: Less Than 50% Completed
