Creating the Hospital of the Future: Implications of Hospital-Focused Physician Practice

In conjunction with the Health Forum/AHA Leadership Summit in July 2012, the PLF, along with the Society for Hospital Medicine, hosted an interactive half-day session designed to explore how hospital-based medical practice is evolving to re-shape care delivery in the hospital of the future. The session included lessons learned from the first fifteen years of hospital medicine, a panel discussion with several specialty hospitalist groups including neurology, obstetrics, orthopedics, and acute care surgery, a view from the CEO perspective of the impact of hospital-focused practice on delivery of care and the bottom line, and how hospital-based practice can lead to better performance and safer hospital care.
