Markarios Hospitalist Group
The term “hospitalist” refers to physicians whose practice emphasizes providing care for hospitalized patients. By focusing the practice on the care of hospitalized patient, a hospitalist can gain a great deal of experience in the unique aspects of a patient’s needs during the hospital stay.
Hospitalists typically spend most or all of their work day in the hospital, and thus can be more readily available to a patient than a doctor who spends much the day outside the hospital in an office or clinic setting
In addition to their core expertise managing the clinical problems of acutely ill, hospitalized patients, hospital medicine practitioners work to enhance the performance of hospitals and healthcare systems by:
- Prompt and complete attention to all patient care needs including diagnosis, treatment and the performance of medical procedures (within their scope of practice).
- Collaboration, communication and coordination with all physicians and healthcare personnel caring for hospitalized patients
- Safe transitioning of patient care within the hospital, and from the hospital to the community, which may include oversight of care in post-acute care facilities.
- Efficient use of hospital and healthcare resources
