Engaged hospitalists drive quality care, and SHM has the tools to help you assess the level of engagement of hospitalists in your hospital medicine group. SHM offered a Hospitalist Engagement Benchmarking Service in 2015 and analyzed engagement of approximately 1,500 hospitalists. Organizational climate, care quality, autonomy, effective motivation, and burnout risk are just a few of the domains that were benchmarked.
“The engagement survey opened conversations about everything from how we relate to the C-suite to what we can do to sustain teamwork,” says Erin Stucky Fisher, MD, MHM, pediatric hospitalist at Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego. “[It] highlighted what was working well and identified what needs work.”
More than 80% of respondents indicated that they will utilize the service again and plan to recommend it to a colleague. Help ensure hospitalists are engaged in your hospital medicine group by registering now for the next cohort at www.hospitalmedicine.org/engage. TH
