What is the Wheel Care Team and Wheel clinician network?
The Wheel Care Team is made up of a 50-state network of virtual care clinicians from a variety of specialties including: behavioral health, dermatology, family medicine, internal medicine, emergency medicine, women’s health, endocrinology, cardiology, and sleep medicine.
Our clinical network includes physicians (MDs & DOs), nurse practitioners, registered nurses, physician assistants, and behavioral health specialists (licensed psychologists, LCSW, LMFT, PMHNP, licensed psychiatrists, and psychiatric nurse practitioners).
Why is working at Wheel different than other telehealth companies?
At Wheel, our mission is to change the way healthcare works by focusing on clinicians. We are committed to protecting your licenses and livelihood always.
We fiercely advocate for our clinicians by meticulously vetting our virtual care company partners for above-board clinical and regulatory compliance, implementing up-to-date practice standards, and ensuring our clinical teams are properly trained to deliver the highest-quality virtual care.
Wheel is different from other telehealth companies because you can work as much or as little as you prefer. There is no pressure to overcommit to schedules that don’t work with your lifestyle. You’re in complete control! You also have access to a diversity of treatment areas with more work opportunities to deliver patient care than if you were to commit to a single telehealth company.
Independence of practice is also paramount at Wheel, as you are the clinical decision-maker. You’ll never be encouraged to over-prescribe working through Wheel.
For too long, clinicians have been commoditized rather than viewed as the highly-skilled, knowledgeable, passionate, empathetic professionals they are. At Wheel, we celebrate you — the professionals at the center of healthcare delivery.
I am interested in telemedicine. What is Wheel and how does Wheel work?
Wheel is a technology company that connects clinicians like you to the best opportunities to work in virtual care. Simultaneously, we connect well-vetted companies from within and outside of healthcare to our network of board-certified telehealth clinicians. This provides clinicians with a better way to work and companies with a scalable way to deliver nationwide virtual care to patients.
We’ve built a singular destination for clinicians to find more work-life balance while increasing opportunities to provide care to more patients. Here, you can work with less bureaucracy, more independence, and rest assured that we’ve always got your back. With the flexibility to design your own schedule, you can rediscover the freedom you deserve.
By matching your skills and licenses with the needs of our company partners, you get a simple way to find work in telehealth without having to juggle multiple telehealth companies to patch together a complete schedule. One contract, one credentialing effort, and one schedule — Wheel makes working in telehealth easy.
Who is eligible to join the Wheel Care Team?
We’re seeking clinicians from all 50 states who have at least two years of in-person clinical practice experience.
We’re hiring physicians (MDs & DOs), nurse practitioners, registered nurses, physician assistants, and behavioral health specialists (licensed psychologists, LCSW, LMFT, PMHNP, licensed psychiatrists, and psychiatric nurse practitioners). Once your application is accepted, we will initiate the one-time credentialing process to NCQA standards.
What virtual care companies can I work with?
We match clinicians to remote care opportunities with a variety of client partners to provide everything from virtual primary care, lab requisitions and reviews, remote patient monitoring, chronic condition management, and behavioral health services.
Clinicians get the opportunity to work with multiple virtual care companies across diverse healthcare specialties: retail medicine, labs and diagnostics, primary and urgent care, health plans, direct-to-consumer pharmacies, behavioral health organizations, employee benefits platforms, condition management solutions, and direct-to-consumer health navigation.
Do you hire clinicians full-time? How much time do I need to commit?
Clinicians at Wheel are 1099 contractors, and as such are in control of their schedule.
After joining the Wheel team, we present you with a client opportunity, and based on their needs, you can choose the workload and schedule that works for you.
How do clinicians get paid?
Our clinicians get paid by the patient visit or by the hour, depending on the virtual care opportunity.
Do you provide clinicians medical malpractice insurance?
Yes. Wheel provides medical malpractice insurance coverage that covers the full scope of each virtual care consult. This coverage also extends to collaborating physicians who are part of the Wheel network.
I do not have a supervising physician for my state. Can Wheel provide me a collaborator?
At this time, Wheel does not provide collaborative and supervisory matching services. Our clinicians have had the most opportunity finding collaborative relationships through colleague word of mouth, posting to social media groups, in-person and virtual networking events, and connecting on LinkedIn.
What type of clinician training do you offer?
Our clinicians are trained in Webside Manner (the virtual equivalent of bedside manner); in our virtual care partners’ brand, voice, clinical protocols, and technology platforms; and in the latest patient safety guidelines and HIPAA regulations.
For some opportunities, we also offer clinical shadows where new clinician team members can virtually tag along with an existing Wheel clinician to get to know the consult process and learn how to work within the platform.
At Wheel, we want our clinicians to feel empowered to deliver the highest level of patient care from day one. We support you throughout the onboarding process so that you start working with full confidence, serving more patients across the country with compassionate, convenient, and accessible care.
