Years ago, hospitalists were introduced as new, efficient options for staffing hospitals. Today, they are known as the quarterbacks for patient care and quality improvement (QI) within the hospital.
This year, hospitalists everywhere can help their hospitals resolve to make 2013 a landmark year for QI. And making time for quality improvement need not be a major investment, nor do you have to “reinvent the wheel” and create your own programs.
SHM’s full menu of QI options gives hospitalists and other caregivers the confidence that their program is field-tested as well as the ability to choose the level of involvement that’s right for them.
