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 ...

In 2001, a study titled, A Multi-Center Trial of Academic Hospitalists began at the University of Chicago Hospital along with five additional academic institutions. The study is currently and successfully collecting data solely at the University of Chicago Medical Center.. The comprehensive aim of this proposed research is to measure and analyze the effects of hospitalists on patient outcomes, costs, and medical education on the general medicine services at the University of Chicago Medical Center (UC). The comprehensive aim of this research will be pursued through five specific aims:. Specific Aim #1- To assess whether hospitalists affect the cost and quality of inpatient care. This will be accomplished by analyzing the outcomes of 50,000 patients assigned to hospitalists or non-hospitalists using a quasi-randomized design based on day of the week of admission. Outcomes will include in-hospital and post-discharge mortality, readmission, emergency room use, and patient satisfaction.. Specific ...

First, Steward has wronged the children by not advertising the Tufts Floating Childrens Pediatric Hospitalist Program, where a pediatric hospitalist was in-house 24 hours per day to oversee, treat and stabilize children/infants/newborns in the ER, inpatient pediatric unit and the nursery/labor and delivery unit. They have wronged the children secondly, by not enforcing the physicians to increase consultations with the pediatric hospitalists regarding the children that enter through the ER.

TACOMA, Wash., Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sound Physicians Enters Agreement to Provide Hospitalist Services for Seven CHRISTUS Health Hospitals....
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 ...
The full text of the paper is worth reading because it describes what Ill call the second wave of increased utilization of hospitalists, that is, hospitalists increasingly acting as the primary attending for subspecialty patients. In the large health care system reported in the referenced paper subspecialists had almost entirely turned their admissions over to hospitalists by the end of the study period ...
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 ...

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.. Specific evidence-based conferences will be provided on the following topics:. ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Yes, it is true they are still out there. They believe that students and residents are choosing hospital medicine over primary care so hospitalists are to be blamed for the primary care shortage. They also believe that the rise of hospital medicine has made primary care less attractive. Then, there is the salient argument that…

Although more studies are needed to draw firm conclusions, the acute nonlipid pleiotropic effects of statins may improve patient outcomes, especially for patients at the highest risk. ■ ■KEY POINTS Experiments in animals suggest that statins, given shortly before or after a cardiovascular event, confer benefit before any changes in lipids are measurable.

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 ...
Neurology for the Hospitalist is a concise and eminently practical resource for inpatient neurological care. Internal Medicine Hospitalists frequently face patients with neurological issues and many feel that their training was insufficient in this area. Hospitalists are often the primary inpatient care providers for this patient population as many perceive Neurology to be an Internal Medicine subspecialty.
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. Enter Apple Inc., which has officially moved into the health and wellness business.

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

Hospitalists routinely care for patients with infections, or symptoms of infections, or suspected infections that might not even be infections at all. Many times, hospitalists have more than one treatment option. So which is the best to use? Is there a better option than the therapy that first comes to mind? What about that new antibiotic out there-is it really worth it?. All the while, hospitalists who want to practice conscientious medicine have to be careful they dont overuse broad-spectrum antibiotics so that bugs resistance to the drugs is not speeded up unnecessarily.. In short, infectious diseases can be dicey terrain.. 1 Prepare for the reality that the availability of new drugs is shrinking because of antibiotic resistance.. That grim fact might be cause for hospitalists to seek help from ID specialists at their hospitals, says John Bartlett, MD, professor of epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore and founding director of the Center for ...
Given these facts, its clear that each transition from the ED to a new setting has implications for both the patient and hospital.. Without appropriate follow-up care, many patients discharged from the ED will return in worse condition. Poor communication between emergency and hospitalist physicians can compromise safety and quality. And emergency physicians often feel they have no choice but to admit patients who lack reasonable access to appropriate post-acute care.. Managing Managed Care. Like all EDs, Orange Coast Memorial has unique needs. Perhaps the most pressing of these is throughput. We currently handle about 30,000 visits a year with just 18 beds.. Whats more, our acuity mix is high, with 30 percent of our ED patients admitted to the hospital. Because our region is dominated by managed care, this requires collaboration with five separate hospitalist groups that regularly admit to our medical center. Each group has its own admissions process, and they vary in terms of their staffing ...

One factor that has consistently signaled lower rates of high-level coding, however, is academic status. A likely reason, as alluded to in a previous "Survey Insights" column, relates to the fact that residents time is not billable. This is particularly important in the discharge coding, in which the higher Level 2 code is strictly based on the statement by an attending that discharge services were personally provided for more than 30 minutes. Understandably, this happens less often when a residents education includes providing discharge services. If attending face-to-face time is a major factor in the discharge coding differential, it does not explain where academic groups are missing the boat on the admission side, where residents documentation is incorporated by attendings-and can have a substantial effect on accurate billing. This assumes that academic groups are not treating far fewer sick patients, less comprehensively, across the board. In my own public academic hospital, I see ...

A Hospitalist is a medical expert who focuses in caring for hospitalized patients. Hospitalists work with a doctor while caring for the doctor s patient. They get the same medical school training as other doctors. Most of these practitioners concentrate in working with internal medicine physicians, but they can also work together with family doctors, pediatric specialists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurse practitioners. Their area of expertise is focused in the hospital supporting doctors who are troubled with too many tasks. They can be found working in a family doctor medical practice to help decrease the doctor s workload. Occasionally Hospitalists may handle the on duty services for a doctor ...

We do not offer in-hospital care to our patients. We do this because it is our belief that you can receive better hosptial care if your conditions are managed by a hospital-based physician. Hospitalists are internists who choose to see patients only in the hospital. These physicians are highly trained at managing your care in a hospital (including in the ICU) and are also in the actual hospital itself between 8-24 hours a day. They can better provide for your needs than a physician who is juggling an office and a hospital. If you become hospitalized, you will likely see the same physicians each time you are hospitalized. They will know your medical history as well as we do. We do correspond with and share your records with the hospitalists taking care of you during any hospital admission. ...

Pressure to control costs has led more academic medical centers to hire hospital-based physicians, known as hospitalists, according to background information in the article. These clinicians provide care for medical inpatients and staff medical teaching rounds. William N. Southern, M.D., M.S., and colleagues at Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, N.Y., reviewed data on all patients discharged from a 381-bed teaching hospital between July 1, 2002, and June 30, 2004. The patients were assigned to either a hospitalist or non-hospitalist team by a senior admitting resident at the time of admission. The teams were identical except for the type of physician conducting the rounds. Data on the patients ...
