Key Principles and Characteristics of an Effective Hospital Medicine Group
Thursday, April 17, 2014
3:00 p.m. ET, 2:00 p.m. CT, 1:00 p.m. MT, 12:00 p.m. PT
(60 minutes with live Q&A)

What makes a hospital medicine group (HMG) effective? How can your hospitalists improve their performance? For the first time ever, new guidelines from the experts in the field can help hospital executives and HMGs evaluate their performance.

With the continuing growth of the specialty of hospital medicine, the capabilities and performance of HMGs varies significantly. In February, the Society for Hospital Medicine (SHM) published The Key Principles and Characteristics of an Effective HMG as a guide for HMG self-improvement in the Journal of Hospital Medicine.

This webinar will review the published principles and characteristics and offer practical applications to hospital leaders. The Key Principles and Characteristics of an Effective HMG have been designed to be aspirational, helping to “raise the bar” for the hospital medicine specialty. These principles and characteristics provide a framework for HMGs seeking to conduct self-assessments, outlining a pathway for improvement, and better defining the central role of hospitalists in coordinating team-based, patient-centered care in the acute care setting.

About the Physician Leadership Forum:
As part of the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) ongoing mission to improve the health of patients and communities, AHA introduced the Physician Leadership Forum to engage and partner with physicians to collaboratively advance excellence in patient care. AHA’s Physician Leadership Forum also seeks to gather input from physicians to inform AHA policy and advocacy efforts while advancing physician leadership within the health care delivery system.

About the Society of Hospital Medicine:
Representing the fastest growing specialty in modern health care, the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) is the leading medical society for more than 44,000 hospitalists and their patients. SHM is dedicated to promoting the highest quality care for all hospitalized patients and overall excellence in the practice of hospital medicine through quality improvement, education, advocacy and research. Over the past decade, studies have shown that hospitalists can contribute to decreased patient lengths of stay, reductions in hospital costs and readmission rates, and increased patient satisfaction.
