Not All Hospitalist Groups are Created Equal
Comparing groups of hospitalists poses several challenges. First, not all providers who practice hospital internal medicine are labeled as a “hospitalist” in the data. Second, a hospitalist is hardly ever the only provider involved in the care of an inpatient. Third, any one patient may be cared for by multiple hospitalists or other advanced practitioners who are aligned with that hospitalist group (and, in some patients, there is overlap in the groups). Fourth, patient populations are heterogenous. IllumiCare is uniquely able to capture real-time insights on physician controlled expenses and patient acuity.
