    Intake Coordinators are located at the Intake Department of the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and provide a high level of triage prior to patient arrival into the Stem Cell Transplant or Immunotherapy outpatient clinics.  This team of clinicians works closely with attending physicians and principal investigators to determine a patient’s clinical eligibility for these therapies. 

     

    Complex tasks performed by the coordinators may include review of eligibility for protocols, test/result coordination with referring MD site and scheduling of radiation therapy and cellular therapy processes prior to arrival.  Essentially, the Intake team of clinicians set incoming patients up for entry to the transplant or Immunotherapy clinics in order that when they arrive, patients can quickly be evaluated further by the outpatient teams prior to start of therapy.

     

    This coordinator may also participate in other activities around the center, which may include duties such as taking minutes at the weekly Patient Care Conference, attending work rounds and attending meetings to facilitate coordinating issues in the Intake office.
