Society of Hospital Medicine Offers Quality Improvement Tools for Hospitals


Whether you excel in the hospital room, the conference room, or the classroom, SHM’s quality improvement initiatives offer new tools featuring expertise from leaders in healthcare:

  • Project BOOST: SHM is moving Project BOOST from an annual registration model to a rolling program, enabling hospitalists to get involved at any time of the year. As hospitals get serious about reducing readmissions and improving discharge processes, Project BOOST is a great way for hospitalists to take charge.
  • Pain management and glycemic control programs: Almost every hospitalist encounters patients dealing with pain or glycemic control issues. In March, new toolkits will be available that help hospitalists lead efforts to improve the care of these patients.
  • Post-Acute Care Toolbox: Managing the transition from an acute care hospital to an inpatient rehabilitation facility, long-term acute care hospital, or skilled nursing facility can be difficult. SHM’s new Post-Acute Care Toolbox enables hospitalists to go forth with confidence.
