Advocate Inpatient Hospitalist Program

Advocate has an established and well-respected Hospitalist program for in-patient care, as do all major health care institutions throughout the United States. Whereas our practice strictly provides office based or ambulatory patient care, Hospitalists are Internists who have been specifically trained to manage all aspects of inpatient care. They provide around-the-clock care for the hospitalized patients of Primary Care Physicians who utilize their services. Studies have consistently demonstrated that the inpatients of physicians who collaborate with Hospitalist programs have better outcomes and shorter hospital stays. We maintain regular communication with our Hospitalists (i.e. the Best Practices Hospitalist group) regarding each patient’s status, diagnostic evaluation, consultant referrals, treatment and disposition. We have been successfully using the program since 2002, and have been very pleased with the level of patient satisfaction, outcomes and care rendered.
