The expenses incurred by a hospital in providing care. The hospital costs attributed to a particular patient care episode include the direct costs plus an appropriate proportion of the overhead for administration, personnel, building maintenance, equipment, etc. Hospital costs are one of the factors which determine HOSPITAL CHARGES (the price the hospital sets for its services).

Hospitalist staffing requirements. (1/137)CONTEXT: The use of hospitalists--physicians who spend a substantial portion of their time providing in-hospital care to the patients of primary care physicians--has been proposed as a way to decrease costs and increase the quality of inpatient care. COUNT: Number of full-time hospitalists. CALCULATIONS: Average daily census = annual admissions x length of stay divided by 365. Number of hospitalists = (average daily census divided by patients per hospitalist) + 1 extra hospitalist for night coverage. DATA SOURCES: The average number of patients per hospitalist was obtained from a National Association of Inpatient Physicians membership survey. A low estimate of 10 patients per hospitalist was used to account for the extra manpower needed for coverage during vacations and other time off. RESULTS: A hospital with 3000 admissions per year and an average length of stay of 5 days would have an average daily census of 41 patients and would need 5 full-time hospitalists. Hospitals with a lower patient volume would need fewer hospitalists and would probably need to find persons other than hospitalists to cover some nights and weekends. CONCLUSIONS: Simple calculations based on hospital admissions and length of stay can estimate the number of hospitalists required for adequate staffing. Requirements will vary with the hospitalists' workload; the patient case complexity; and the duties other than inpatient care that are required of hospitalists, such as consultations, skilled nursing facility coverage, quality improvement work, teaching, and research.

Is hospitalism new? An analysis of medicare data from Washington State in 1994. (2/137)CONTEXT: Managed care, increased disease severity, and more complex treatment options may be reasons for the recent enthusiasm for "hospitalists"--physicians who specialize in the care of inpatients. It is not clear, however, whether hospitalism is a new model for caring for inpatients or merely a new description for previously existing practice patterns. PRACTICE PATTERNS EXAMINED: The proportion of physician visits occurring in the hospital before the introduction of the term hospitalists. Five specialties were examined: family/general practice, general internal medicine, cardiology, gastroenterology, and pulmonology. DATA SOURCE: 1994 Medicare Part B claims data for beneficiaries 65 years of age and older who received all of their care in Washington State. RESULTS: For the average family/general practitioner, 10% of all Medicare visits occurred in the hospital. Corresponding figures for the other specialties were 20% for general internists, 36% for cardiologists, 38% for gastroenterologists, and 45% for pulmonologists. A substantial number of physicians devoted most of their Medicare effort to inpatient care (i.e., hospital visits > 50% of total visits). If this definition were used as a proxy for hospitalism, 4% of family/general practitioners, 10% of general internists, 20% of gastroenterologists, 29% of cardiologists, and 37% of pulmonologists would have been considered hospitalists in Washington State during 1994. On the other hand, 35% of family/general practitioners, 18% of general internists, 7% of both gastroenterologists and pulmonologists, and 4% of cardiologists did not bill Medicare for any inpatient visits and could reasonably be categorized as "officists." CONCLUSION: Physicians vary considerably in the proportion of their workload that occurs in the hospital or outpatient setting. Even before the term was coined, a considerable number of physicians were de facto "hospitalists." (+info)
The impact of an inpatient physician program on quality, utilization, and satisfaction. (3/137)OBJECTIVE: To evaluate an inpatient physician system initiated in June 1996 for all patients of a health maintenance organization admitted to the general medicine service of an urban teaching hospital. In the new program, attending physician duties were transferred from the patient's own general internist to another internist serving on a hospital-based rotation. STUDY DESIGN: Cohort with historical controls. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: We compared the following measures before and after the new inpatient physician program began: (1) hospital length of stay and total charges, (2) outcomes related to quality of care, (3) primary care physician satisfaction, and (4) housestaff satisfaction. Differences before and after initiation of the inpatient physician program were evaluated using multivariate analyses to adjust for patient differences and secular trends. RESULTS: There were 2265 patients discharged from the general medical service in the year following implementation of the inpatient physician program. Postintervention average length of stay decreased from 3.5 to 3.0 days (P < .001). In multivariate analyses, average length of stay was reduced by 0.3 days (P = .008), and total hospital charges were reduced an average of $426 per admission (P = .001). In-hospital mortality rates, percentage of patients discharged home directly, and 30-day readmission rates did not change significantly in the postintervention period. Satisfaction among primary care physicians was high, with 90% of those answering a survey responding that they would recommend a similar program to other primary care groups. Medical housestaff satisfaction with their educational experience also increased. CONCLUSIONS: Implementation of an inpatient physician program at this institution significantly decreased resource utilization while maintaining or improving quality of care. Satisfaction with the program was high among primary care internists and housestaff. (+info)
Potential reduction in mortality rates using an intensivist model to manage intensive care units. (4/137)CONTEXT: Because of evidence suggesting that outcomes are better in "intensivist-model" intensive care units (ICUs), the Leapfrog Group's hospital safety standards propose that ICUs be managed by critical care physicians (intensivists) who work exclusively in the ICU. COUNT: Number of lives saved annually in the United States. CALCULATION: Lives saved = (number of ICU admissions x in-hospital mortality rate of ICU patients) x reduction in mortality rates associated with the intensivist model. DATA SOURCE: Reduction in mortality rate associated with intensivist-model ICUs was determined by performing a structured literature review from 1986 to the present using MEDLINE. Other variables were estimated from various data sources. RESULTS: In the nine studies that met our selection criteria, relative reductions in mortality rates associated with intensivist-model ICUs ranged from 15% to 60%. On the basis of the most conservative estimate of effectiveness (15% reduction), full implementation of intensivist-model ICUs would save approximately 53,850 lives each year in the United States. CAUTIONS: Given the large number of ICU patients and their high baseline risks, even modest reductions in mortality rates would save many lives. Because of potential constraints related to the workforce and other resources, the feasibility of fully implementing intensivist-model ICUs nationwide is uncertain. (+info)
Program description: a hospitalist-run, medical short-stay unit in a teaching hospital. (5/137)A hospitalist-run medical short-stay unit (MSSU) was created at a university-affiliated teaching hospital in Montreal in 1989. Its primary aim was to provide efficient and high-quality care to patients requiring a brief stay in hospital for short-lived medical conditions. After evaluation in the emergency department (ED), patients judged to have acute conditions requiring a short hospital stay are admitted directly to the MSSU. Conversely, patients with more complex conditions requiring a longer stay in hospital are admitted to a clinical teaching unit (CTU). Care in the MSSU is provided by a rotating group of hospitalists. Ensuring the admission of appropriate patients during non-daytime hours was the main difficulty identified. Preliminary evaluation of the MSSU suggested that ED consultants were effective at selecting suitable patients for admission to the MSSU, because only 1 in 5 patients later required transfer to other hospital wards. The 5 most common MSSU discharge diagnoses were asthma and chronic obstructive lung disease, pneumonia, congestive heart failure, urinary tract infection and cellulitis. MSSU patients had a shorter length of stay, lower rates of in-hospital complications and lower rates of readmission within 30 days of discharge compared with CTU patients. Our hospitalist-run MSSU appears to offer a workable system of health care delivery for patients with acute, self-limited illness requiring a brief stay in hospital. The MSSU appeared to promote the efficient use of hospital beds without compromising patient outcomes, however, further research is required to compare the efficiency and outcomes of care directly with that provided by the traditional CTU system.

Physician views on caring for hospitalized patients and the hospitalist model of inpatient care. (6/137)We surveyed 241 board-certified internists affiliated with a large teaching hospital (Boston, Mass) before implementing a hospitalist service to determine attitudes towards providing inpatient care and the hospitalist model. Of physicians surveyed, 66% responded. Most disagreed that inpatient care is "an inefficient use of my time," only 10% felt a hospitalist service would improve patient satisfaction, and 54% felt it would hurt patient-doctor relationships. Multivariable analyses suggest that physicians physically furthest from their inpatient site were had more favorable attitudes toward the hospitalist model; more experienced and busier physicians were more negative. Future investigations should determine strategies for implementing the hospitalist model which address physicians' concerns. (+info)
Trends in hospital medicine: hospitalist advantages revealed. (7/137)Although research on hospitalists is in its infancy, this model appears to reduce health care costs while providing care of at least equal quality to that provided by primary care physicians. This paper reviews recent reports. (+info)
Effects of an HMO hospitalist program on inpatient utilization. (8/137)OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of a health maintenance organization (HMO) hospitalist program on inpatient utilization. PATIENTS: The study sample consisted of patients admitted to the hospital for a routine, uncomplicated acute surgical or medical diagnosis included under Milliman and Robertson's Optimal Recovery Guidelines (ORGs). Evaluation involved comparison of 2 physician management groups: inpatients managed by staff primary care physicians (PCPs) (study group) and inpatients managed by network PCPs (comparison group). STUDY DESIGN: Data before and after introduction of the hospitalist program were available. From the same period, data were available from patients of network PCPs who managed their own inpatient stays (nonhospitalist comparison sample). Three outcomes were used to represent inpatient utilization: (1) number of inpatient stays meeting ORG goals; (2) number of inpatient stays not meeting ORG goals that had > or =1 medically necessary days; and (3) number of inpatient stays not meeting ORG goals that had > or =1 medically unnecessary days. RESULTS: Multiple logistic regression results indicated that inpatient stays were more likely to be within ORG utilization goals when managed by hospitalists vs nonhospitalists (P < .05). Introduction of the hospitalist program reduced the number of stays with unnecessary days among staff inpatients. There was an increase in stays with unnecessary days in the comparison group, ie, inpatients managed by network physicians. CONCLUSIONS: Full-time hospitalists are efficient managers of HMO inpatients. The ORGs for acute, uncomplicated diagnoses provided useful hospital utilization measures that captured inpatient management by hospitalists and PCPs. (+info)
Hospitalists No Longer Novel | Managed Care magazine
In the early days, hospitalist programs were largely driven by health plans as a way to lower costs and improve efficiencies. Capitation programs and Medicares package pricing of diagnosis-related groups were among the factors contributing to the push toward hospital medicine. Although several plans tried requiring their primary care physicians to use hospitalists, the pushback was intense. Most plans have since abandoned involuntary models.. Today, hospital medicine is being driven primarily by hospitals, an evolution that makes perfect sense to Wachter.. Hospitals have recognized the value of hospitalists. At UCSF, we can identify hospitalists who are key leaders in all sorts of areas. They are young, enthusiastic, collaborative physicians who are more than willing to roll up their sleeves and help build new IT systems or improve safety and quality of care. The investment UCSF provides to its hospitalist program is seen as one of the best investments the medical center ever made.. Although ...

Hospital medicine - Wikipedia
In Australia, Hospitalists are career hospital doctors; they are generalist medical practitioners whose principal focus is the provision of clinical care to patients in hospitals; they are typically beyond the internship-residency phase of their career, but have decidedly chosen as a conscious career choice not to partake in vocational-specialist training to acquire fellowship specialist qualification. Whilst not specialists, these clinicians are nonetheless experienced in their years of medical practice, and depending on their scope of practice, they typically work with a reasonable degree of independence and autonomy under the auspices of their specialist colleagues and supervisors. Hospitalists form a demographically small but important workforce of doctors in hospitals across Australia where on-site specialist coverage is otherwise unavailable. Hospitalists are typically employed in a variety of public and private hospital settings on a contractual or salaried basis. Dependent on their place ...

Real Psychiatry: Hospitalists.....
Gunderman points out that as opposed to the usual delineators of speciality care - patient age, physician skillset and body system hospitalists are delineated only by patient location. He doesnt make it explicit but what is the relationship between location and his list of putative benefits? Looking at length of stay for example - that could logically follow as a concentrated effort in the location, but is that a clinical effort or an administrative one? He points out that the increasing number of hospitalists per se, cannot be taken as evidence of benefit and that perverse incentives exist. I agree with the most perverse being the low reimbursement incentive for high volume practice. Seeing complex inpatients with a high frequency of initial and discharge assessments may reduce the volume necessary for productivity demands. When I was a psychiatric hospitalist, this dimension was manipulated in a number of ways. I was initially told, I was responsible for a set number of inpatient beds. At ...

Hospitalist Resident Rotator Elective: Formal Academic Expectations and Educational Experiences
While on the Hospitalist service, visiting residents will be expected to participate in at least one on-going quality improvement and hospital throughput research projects designed to evaluate and improve patient safety and bed utilization on the unit. Opportunities for continued participation in these projects following completion of the elective will be considered on a case-by-case basis for visiting residents who are interested in gaining additional research experience. At the end of the month, the visiting resident is expected to give a brief presentation to the Hospitalist group on the rationale and current status of this project. We recognize that one month is insufficient time to become a study investigator. It ensures, however, that residents are briefly exposed to the types of research and quality improvement initiatives that Hospitalists are expected to participate in and direct at their institutions..

Hospitalists Are The Doctors Who Look After The Hospitals! | Centrum Byvania Body
The medical field has always been a demanding one. A large number of people are regularly getting in touch with the clinics with regards to solving their health issues. This demand has made the field a necessity. There are several reforms taking place in this aspect, every now and then. Newer facilities are being launched with better changes. The medicine field is controlled by doctors, physicians and nurses, but since the last ten years there are novel faces emerging called the hospitalists. The job of a physician is to prescribe appropriate medicines to the diseased patients along with their regular practices. But there are individuals, who, due to their over loaded duties prefer to turn to hiring medical students for the hospitalist jobs. A hospitalist is a person who is selected by the physicians to assist them take charge of the patients in their absence. They are definitely more aware of the happenings at the hospitals and are probably more aware of the systems than the doctors that come ...
Todays New England Journal Hospitalist Study | The Hospital Leader
Caveats aside, the findings are there for all to see, and the socio-politico-economic fallout will be fascinating. Since most hospitalist groups get (and require) hospital support, and much of that support has been predicated on a Return-on-Investment drawn from earlier findings of 15 percent LOS and cost reductions, expect some skirmishes at budget time, with hospitals trying to tighten the screws on their hospitalist groups (why should we raise your support - you only save us $200 per patient!). The hospitalist group that has not convinced its CFO that the true ROI doesnt hinge on pure cost reduction - but rather on systems improvement, QI, patient safety, and more - may be in for a bumpy ride. In fact, as Larry McMahons thoughtful NEJM editorial articulates, for all its admirable exposition and scientific rigor, the new study probably doesnt matter very much. The hospitalist genie is out of the bottle - in community hospitals, most of the PCPs have retreated to the office and arent ...
Patients Win With Hospitalists, Emergency Physicians on the Same Team - CEP America
To help out their ED colleagues, the hospitalists agreed to take over the writing of admissions orders, which freed up an estimated 15 percent of the emergency physicians work time. The hospitalists also allowed the emergency department to initiate their own bed requests (even if the patient hadnt yet been seen by a hospitalist). To help improve communication, the two groups began communicating directly by email and text message rather than waiting for the department secretaries to relay information. Finally, CEP America hospitalist nurse practitioners were assigned exclusively to the ED to facilitate the transitions of admitted patients. All of these improvements helped decrease turnaround time to admission ...
Notes from Dr. RW: Hospitalists as bed control officers?
This system is working well at Hopkins Bayview and might be a good fit at a few other hospitals, but it represents another step in the wrong direction for the hospitalist movement in general. When I made the move from traditional internist to hospitalist in 1999 hospitalists were considered clinicians (usually internal medicine trained) who, because they spent all or nearly all their professional time caring for inpatients, could ascend to extraordinary heights on the learning curve of inpatient medicine. The special expertise thus provided, along with the flexibility it afforded primary care physicians who chose not to round in hospitals, was the basis for their value. Over time things changed as leaders in the field thought up increasingly diverse tasks (clinical, procedural and administrative) to add to the hospitalists repertoire. Increasingly the specialty of hospital medicine is being viewed as a cadre of providers whose primary role is to offer business and administrative solutions to ...
Use of Hospitalists: Another Case of May vs. Must | Managed Care magazine
Thus, Wachter readily agrees that one of the chief objections initially raised by primary care doctors about hospitalists is true: They do disrupt the continuity of care by creating an inpatient-outpatient handoff. However, discontinuity has always been part of hospital care, he argues, and effective hospitalists work to bridge the inpatient-outpatient divide and often improve continuity for the patient within a hospital stay as well.. In the traditional system, your primary care physician sees you at 7 a.m., and then youre seen by 40 different people after that, none of whom is your doctor, says Wachter. Theres no one there the rest of the day to coordinate your care. Your primary care physician is back in his office, and during the weekend his partner comes to see you.. Nelson points out that when a primary care physician tells a longtime patient that gallbladder surgery seems necessary, the patient doesnt say, I dont know any gallbladder surgeons, but Ive known you for years and ...
Next Step in Sustainability: Re-Thinking How Hospitalists Organize Their Work | The Hospital Leader
Do we really need another commentary on the shortcomings of the 7-on/7-off work schedule? My colleague John Nelson has written and spoken about this extensively, most recently in his January 2016 column in The Hospitalist. And while Ive been planning to write this post for a while, Bob Wachter got the jump on me by famously declaring at his HM16 closing presentation in March that I think one thing we got wrong was a 7-days-on/7-days-off schedule. Nevertheless, I cant resist weighing in.. When I first started working with hospitalist groups more than a dozen years ago, hospitalists routinely told me that the 7-on/7-off schedule was one of the main reasons they chose to go into this specialty. But too often when I visit groups today there are at least a few more experienced doctors who say they are thinking of leaving the field if they cant find an alternative to the systole-diastole lifestyle this schedule creates. More and more groups are beginning to explore how they can continue to offer ...

Letters to the Editor: Family Physicians Should Provide Care for Hospitalized Patients - American Family Physician
to the editor: Our practice cares for all its hospitalized patients (adults and children), so I have been dismayed that many family physicians and generalists have given up hospital-based care. This movement has occurred despite high-quality evidence demonstrating no improvement in outcomes or cost savings from specialists in hospital medicine. I was pleased to read the Tips from Other Journals by Dr. Kripke that reviewed the study from the New England Journal of Medicine.1 This study showed that family physicians provide inpatient care on par or superior to that of general internists and hospitalists.1 In this study, the small reduction in length of stay (0.4 days) in patients cared for by hospitalists actually translated to zero cost improvement compared with hospitalized patients cared for by family physicians. Surprisingly, the closing line in that study stated that there remains a need to understand how hospitalist systems should be structured in order to improve the quality and outcomes ...

HealthKit Wellness App Could Prove Helpful to Hospitalists | The Hospitalist
The first two aims are difficult enough, but the third involves engaging and empowering patients and their families to take ownership of their own health and wellness. This is much more than just understanding what your diagnoses are and which medications to take; it is about getting and staying well. Keeping patients and their families well is a goal that has eluded the healthcare industry since before Hippocrates and is an extremely challenging one for hospitalists, whose time with patients is usually limited to an acute care hospital stay. Naturally, when one industry cannot figure out how to do something well, another industry will develop a breakthrough innovation.

Anesthesiologists as perioperative hospitalists and outcomes in patients undergoing major urologic surgery: a historical...
Perioperative care has been identified as an area of wide variability in quality, with conflicting models, and involving multiple specialties. In 2014, the Loma Linda University Departments of Anesthesiology and Urology implemented a perioperative hospitalist service (PHS), consisting of anesthesiology-trained physicians, to co-manage patients for the entirety of their perioperative period. We hypothesized that implementation of this PHS model would result in an improvement in patient recovery. As a quality improvement (QI) initiative, the PHS service was formed of selected anesthesiologists who received training on the core competencies for hospitalist medicine. The service was implemented following a co-management agreement to medically manage patients undergoing major urologic procedures (prostatectomy, cystectomy, and nephrectomy). Impact was assessed by comparisons to data from the year prior to PHS service implementation. Data was compared with and without propensity matching. Primary outcome

Society of Hospital Medicine Uses Two AHRQ Products in Hospital Discharge Toolkit | Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality
The Society of Hospital Medicine developed a hospital discharge toolkit based on findings from two AHRQ-funded projects-Patient Safe-D(ischarge) and Project RED (Re-Engineered Discharge). The toolkit, called Project BOOST (Better Outcomes for Older Adults through Safer Transitions), has been used by approximately 45 hospitals nationally to implement an evidence-based method of better organizing and standardizing the sometimes chaotic patient discharge process. The Society of Hospital Medicine is a national organization representing more than 10,000 hospitalists-physicians who practice in hospitals.. According to Mark V. Williams, MD, FACP, FHM, Principal Investigator for Project BOOST and Professor and Chief, Division of Hospital Medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, AHRQs investment in the Patient Safe-D and Project RED provided invaluable experience and yielded important components for the more expansive Project BOOST initiative.

Rapid Bedside Diagnosis of Shock | Journal of Hospital Medicine
Abstract HYPOTHESIS: Selected elements of a simple physical examination algorithm accurately predict categories of shock. SETTING: A 350‐bed community teaching hospital. METHODS: Resident trainees who manage all critically ill and medically unstable patients were instructed to document capillary refill, (palpated) pulse volume, skin temperature, jugular venous pressure (JVP) and lung examination in all patients with prolonged (|30 minutes hypotension 7 cmH2O was more accurate than bilateral pulmonary crackles (|1/3 from bases) in predicting cardiogenic shock for low‐output patients with sensitivity of 82%, specificity of 79%, PPV of 75%, NPV of 85%, and overall accuracy of 80%. Using just skin temperature and JVP, the bedside approach correctly diagnosed 52/68 cases (overall accuracy = 76%). CONCLUSIONS: Simple bedside clinical examination findings correctly predict categories of shock in a majority of cases. Journal of Hospital Medicine 2010. © 2010 Society of Hospital Medicine.
Prevalence of the Use of PIVCs | Journal of Hospital Medicine
Over a billion peripheral intravenous catheters (PIVCs) are inserted each year in hospitalized patients worldwide. However, international data on prevalence and management of these devices are lacking. The study assessed the prevalence of PIVCs and their management practices across different regions of the world. This global audit involved 14 hospitals across 13 countries, with 479 patients screened for the presence of a PIVC. We found 59% of patients had at least 1 PIVC in place, and 16% had other types of vascular devices. We also found that overall, 25% of patients had no vascular device in place. The majority of PIVCs were inserted by nursing staff or a specialist team. The prevalence of idle PIVCs in place with no fluid or medication orders was 16%, and 12% of PIVCs had at least 1 symptom of phlebitis.
