Your OmniSource® Team

Your OmniSource Case Manager (OCM) will support you from day one

Iʼm an OmniSource Case Manager (OCM) and Iʼm here to help get you enrolled in OmniSource, to welcome you to the program, and to support along the way.

To get started, Iʼll work closely with your doctor throughout the onboarding process – helping with Benefits Investigation (BI) and Prior Authorization (PA) forms and any potential appeals.

Once youʼre enrolled, Iʼll work with you to explain all of the OmniSource services available to you and your family, and help you determine which options are best for you.

Itʼs my job to help you make the most of your treatment journey, so if you have any questions along the way, you know who to ask!

Trainer

Your Nurse Trainer is here to help you learn how to use Omnitrope® at home

I’m an OmniSource Nurse Trainer and it’s my role to help you get as comfortable as possible with administering your treatment at home.

I know that getting used to an injection routine can be challenging. That’s why I’m here to help you and your family to learn how to inject safely, at a pace that works for you. 

There are three ways that we can work together. I offer injection training in person at your home, over the telephone or by video chat – however you are most comfortable. 

If at any point, you would like a refresher or some additional training, call your OCM and they will be able to help coordinate a Nurse Trainer for you.
