“I’m a strong believer that hospitalists can lead, coordinate, or participate in a multidisciplinary team to improve the quality of care delivered to the patients. The use of metrics and tools such as medication safety, safe discharge, proper chart documentation, and meeting core measures that are quality benchmarks, is crucial to patient safety and optimal outcome.”
