Medical providers have been faced with the harsh reality of reduced time with direct patient care.

Just the thought of change makes us groan. We are fine. Please do not disrupt everything. It is human nature to protect what is perceived to be working. Doctors and medical practices are no different. We know our processes are broken and antiquated. So why not revamp them? Why is it easier to kick [...]

You Do Not Need an Army to Manage Your Inpatient Census

One of the most frequent complaints from practicing physicians is the erosion over the past 20 years of time spent with patients. Direct patient care now only accounts for 30% of total provider time.

Managing hospital rounding is completely different from seeing patients in the office. Outpatient medicine doesn’t have many moving parts. You have a schedule - you see your patients - the end. Inpatient medicine is a mess. There is no schedule. You and your partners need to figure out who is going to round and [...]
