Our Case Management program identifies those patients who require more intensive oversight and coordination of their care. Working with a team of physicians, our case managers serve patients with chronic ailments including, but not limited to:
The Hospitalist who cares for you is usually not the same physician who acts as your primary care provider for your out-patient problems in the office. However, every effort is made to keep your regular doctor informed of your progress, and the Hospitalist closely works with your physician to make your transition of care following discharge as smooth as possible.
The Hospitalists assess your needs at the time of your discharge and coordinates your post-discharge care with the help of nurse case managers. They communicate your needs to your primary care physician and specialists so that you remain well once discharged. It has been recognized that the use of Hospitalist physicians results in a higher quality of in-patient care and this system has been widely adopted by physicians and accepted by patients. Health plans have similarly not only encouraged the use of Hospitalists but also recognize this method of hospital care as a best practice.
