Hospital rounding and provider satisfaction. These words do not often go together. Providing care to hospitalized patients has become increasingly burdensome, with so many demands placed on providers, patient care seems to come last. And typically the efficiency of your rounding will impact your overall provider satisfaction.
Burdens on providers:
- Finding your patients (census management)
- Navigating the hospital’s EHR for clinical data
- Actually seeing the patient
- Writing your note
- Regulatory requirements, such as documentation for restraints, meds, CHF, acute coronary syndrome, justification for length of stay, inpatient/outpatient status à lots of demands
- Planning for discharge
- Somehow getting paid for your work (charge capture!!)
- Communication with other providers
- Sign-off / transfer of care to providers in your practice
Here are 5 ways you can streamline your patient hospital rounding through purposeful rounding.
