Hospitalist Services

Medical Services

Hospitalist services are specialized physicians that are practicing medicine only in the acute care hospital setting. Hospitalists are doctors who only see patients who are confined to an acute care medical facility, where they monitor their progress and adjust care as needed. Hospitalists are comfortably equipped to communicate with patients, primary care physicians and their families. Hospitalist medicine, as a specialty, has grown at the greatest rate in medicine as geographic boundaries inhibit community-based physicians ability to travel back and forth from an office to the acute care setting. A large part of hospitalists’ work is keeping abreast of the most recent medical advances and therapies, allowing busy primary care doctors to concentrate on their outpatient practices.

Value-Based Care

In hospitals, hospitalists are fluent in all of the other hospital disciplines and excel at making sure “things get done.” Patients, family members (with sufficient consent), nurses, and other practitioners involved in a patient’s care are promptly informed of test results and follow-up is promptly carried out on the outcomes of those tests. As a result, treatment is closely coordinated to ensure that the patient receives the best care available.

What Our Leader Say

“We use telemedicine to close gaps in care. For example, sometimes patients are transferred to the ED for care the SNF can’t provide. With Tele-SNF, we have peer-to-peer management of that transfer. Oftentimes, the patient can be returned to the SNF that same day. We put expertise in place to ensure patients’ goals are met and care is appropriate.”
Brian Carpenter, MD SFHM
National Medical Director, Telemedicine

Telemedicine

Value in telemedicine is more than technology. It is ubiquitous access to expert care, day or night, anywhere and everywhere. Our network of highly-trained physicians are experts in managing acutely ill patients when clinical crises inevitably arise, in any setting, including their home. Reaching patients when others cannot, we close gaps in care and dramatically reduce hospital readmissions.

  • We are the only scaled physician provider delivering telemedicine to SNFs, reducing readmissions by 30%
  • We accelerate the initiation of care for the nation’s largest home health providers
  • Our expert physician oversight helps manage higher acuity patients in the home setting
