An employer's perspective on hospitalists as a source of improved health care value.
The Hospitalist Movement in the United States. National Conference. San Francisco, CA, USA, 1997/12/06.
The probable perspective of large employers toward the phenomenon of hospitalists can be derived by examining the four essential elements of health care value to employers.
Current hospital care in the United States is thought to offer substantial opportunities for improvement, and the impact of hospitalist programs on an employer's sense of health care value is predicted to be favorable.
This prediction, however, should be validated through outcomes research before it is widely propagated.
If innovations as promising as hospitalist programs are to occur in ambulatory care, employers and other health care purchasers must be proactive in identifying and rewarding them.
