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 [...]

Today, on average, the national rate for 30-day all-cause readmission is almost 15% (see Figure 1 below).
