The hospitalist movement: Is there a place for anesthesiologists?

Abstract

The growth of managed care has led to the development of a new type of inpatient physician, referred to as hospitalists. These physicians assume all inpatient care from the primary care provider and are thought to provide more cost-effective, efficient care. Although the vast majority of these hospitalists are trained in internal medicine, anesthesiologists have the unique opportunity of becoming the ultimate inpatient physician. They provide comprehensive care throughout hospitalization in the intensive care unit and the operating room and are responsible for pain management. The authors discuss the hospitalist model and an innovative program currently being developed to train perioperative specialists.
