Managed care and competition are creating pressures to control costs and prevent adverse outcomes in health care.
These forces are also creating a new era in hospital epidemiology, one in which there are many opportunities for the infectious disease physician.
The ability to create and administer a hospital epidemiology program is a valuable asset in this environment.
Included in hospital epidemiology programs are activities such as infection control, quality management, employee health, risk management, and microbiology and clinical pharmacy consultations.
The hospital epidemiologist must be prepared to take advantage of the opportunities created.
