FOSTERING COLLABORATION: EXPOSURE TO INTERPROFESSIONAL COLLABORATION IN THE INTERNAL MEDICINE CLERKSHIP

Background: In 2015, medical students in their clinical clerkships (traditionally known as third year medical students) began rotating directly with hospitalist attendings. As we began crafting the rotation, we sought to provide value that was [...]

IMPACT OF INTER-HOSPITAL TRANSFER ON PATIENT OUTCOMES: A NATIONAL EVALUATION

Background: The transfer of patients between hospitals (interhospital transfer, IHT), exposes patients to risks of discontinuity of care. In this study, we aim to better understand which patients may (or may not) benefit from IHT [...]

SAFETY QUEST: A NOVEL WEB-BASED GAME TO TEACH QI AND PATIENT SAFETY

Background: In 2016, ACGME’s first Clinical Learning Environment Review (CLER) report found that trainees had limited knowledge of Quality Improvement (QI) and patient safety (PS) concepts.. Purpose: We have designed a free, interactive, web-based game [...]

THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG, ANTIBIOTIC STEWARDSHIP AND FLUOROQUINOLONE USE AT HOSPITAL DISCHARGE: A MULTI-HOSPITAL COHORT STUDY

Background: Inpatient antibiotic stewardship programs often use pre-prescription approval (PPA) or prospective audit and feedback (PAF) to reduce fluoroquinolone prescribing. Whether these stewardship strategies targeting inpatient fluoroquinolone use also influence prescribing at discharge is unknown. [...]

THE ALLERGY THAT WASN’T: INPATIENT PENICILLIN TESTING; AN IMPORTANT STEP FOR ANTIBIOTIC STEWARDSHIP

Background: Approximately 5-10% of the US population reports a Penicillin (PCN) allergy. Only 1 in 10 of these patients are found to have a positive reaction to PCN. This label comes at a grave cost, [...]

IMPACT OF INDIVIDUALIZED METRICS AND MOBILE DELIVERY ON HOSPITALIST ENGAGEMENT AND OUTCOMES

Background: Inpatient margins and hospital reimbursement have become increasingly dependent upon improving key metrics, such as length of stay and 30-day readmissions. Hospitalists typically lack access to credible, timely, and insightful metrics that inform their [...]
