We follow a two-pronged strategy when it comes to hospital medicine:
We collaborate with Hospitals to develop effective hospitalist programs geared towards achieving high standards of quality, clinical efficiency and financial performance. Our breadth of experience in hospital based medicine has enabled us to develop tools and practices designed to address both the common success factors and the specific nuances of a successful hospitalist program.
FOCUS ON QUALITY
We at 4C understand that in today’s dynamic healthcare environment, hospitals and physician groups need to work together to deliver on key quality metrics. By working collaboratively with our partner facilities, we are able to develop programs to effectively define, monitor and deliver on key performance metrics such as:
- Patient Satisfaction
- Length of Stay
- Avoidable Bed-Days
- CMS Core Measures
- Discharge planning and case management
- Timely and accurate documentation
- Readmission Rates and ‘Bounce Backs’
Following the concept of Continuous Improvement or ‘Kaizen’, we believe that commitment to quality is not a singular exercise, but a continuous process of incremental improvements brought about by a systematic feedback process. This approach allows us to develop programs that consistently deliver high quality care to our patients and provide better outcomes for the facilities we work with.
