Quality Improvement & Patient Safety Self-Assessment: History and Theory

While similar in some ways to other hospital-based physicians such as specialists in a hospital’s critical-care unit, hospitalists have a broader mandate to help manage patients throughout the entire hospital stay, often seeing them in the ER, following them into the critical-care unit, and overseeing post-acute care and discharge. Such a comprehensive approach allows hospitalists to recognize and diagnose disorders and conditions most commonly seen in hospitalized patients, anticipate problems, and rapidly respond to crises or changes in a patient’s condition. These opportunities are not always realized in practice.

Hospitalists are the key communicators with patients and their families. They are better able to facilitate communication among shift changes of healthcare professionals and manage patients’ transitions among the various phases of their hospitalization, including patient flow and intra-hospital hand-offs.
