In the future, the hospital’s heart will beat
With a rhythm that is new and sweet.
Technology, including AI’s might,
Will aid patient care innovation, day and night.
The hospitalist will be the captain
Of this ship, navigating us to action.
Collaborating with AI’s precision,
And using machine learning’s predictive vision.
With algorithms analyzing data and trends,
Hospitalists can make better decisions in the end.
Machine learning’s insights provide a guide,
As hospitalists navigate the tide.
The future of hospital medicine is bright,
As human-machine collaboration takes flight.
Hospitalists, still the quarterbacks in the game,
Will have a big data brain to gain better aim.
