About the Session

The physician shortage coupled with the high-stakes of value-based reimbursement has created a perfect storm for hospital medicine. During this session, the faculty will present this challenge in context by outlining the importance of optimizing reimbursement by ensuring hospitalists and their teams operate at peak efficiency, meet key performance metrics and deliver exceptional patient care, while also fostering professional satisfaction and personal fulfilment. The session will highlight a case study of CHRISTUS St. Michael Health System and draw on the broader experience of the presenters to illuminate how to adapt these principles and techniques to solve the specific hospitalist-related challenges facing your organization. The presenters will conduct interactive exercises to encourage peer-to-peer learning.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define roles and accountabilities for leadership, operations, physician services and the hospitalist team that will improve physician recruitment and retention.
  • Identify tools, techniques and key performance indicators that maximize return on investment from improved recruitment and retention.
