What is a Hospitalist:
In the late 1990s, the hospitalist concept emerged in response to the need for dedicated hospital-based physicians to handle complex patient cases. The hospitalist model of care has shown value in efficiency and improved patient outcomes. Studies show hospitalists have significantly reduced the length of hospital stays and costs of patient care.
