Three years ago, SHM launched Hospital Medicine Exchange (HMX), an online collaborative forum designed to foster thoughtful discussions related to the hospital medicine movement, facilitate networking among SHM members, and house shared resources and best practices in the field.

In celebration of this milestone, SHM has unveiled a new native mobile app for HMX, ensuring that SHM members have access to insight and answers from thousands of other members, wherever they are.

The redesigned app features a new user interface, including easy access to your communities as well as SHM’s website, social media, and The Hospital Leader blog. Not only is the new app easy to use, but, once you are online, you can be a part of the vibrant conversations taking place among thousands of hospitalists across the country.

After you download the new app from the iTunes or Google Play stores, log in using your SHM username and password on your tablet or smartphone to:

  • Quickly scan through and engage in discussions in your favorite communities, including HMX Open Forum;
  • Connect and network with fellow SHM members across the country by clicking on “People”;
  • Check your private messages with Inbox; and
  • Access resources relevant to your everyday practice in the Libraries.
“It is a great app, and I love the shortcuts on the home screen.” —Masoumeh Ghaffari, MD, hospitalist, Piedmont Healthcare, Acworth, Ga., in a posting to the HMX Open Forum

Members already are responding to the new and improved HMX mobile app. Hospitalist Masoumeh Ghaffari, MD of Piedmont Healthcare in Acworth, Ga., posted in HMX Open Forum, “It is a great app, and I love the shortcuts on the home screen.”

The new HMX mobile app is one of many recent HMX enhancements. HMX is constantly growing and launching new communities for members. For example, the Patient Experience community and the Women in Hospital Medicine community were most recently launched. Join these and other communities to share your thoughts on topics ranging from admissions to pediatrics and everything in between.
