Gain Efficiency and Time Through Co-Management

Amid the changes following the healthcare reform movement and the continual decline in reimbursements, it is becoming increasingly important for community physicians to retool their practice models and find ways to garner increased efficiency in the delivery of care. The clinical co-management practice at Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center is a wonderful opportunity for community physicians to gain efficiency and time and by allowing the hospitalist to jointly manage their patients while in the hospital. This practice model comes with a myriad of options to allow the community physician to remain as involved in the care of the patient as they desire while giving them the flexibility to see patients in their office.
