Reduce Costs, Improve Care
Hospitalist programs bring many efficiencies to inpatient care but can be a headache to set up and administer. Finding and retaining hospitalists is a major hurdle in itself, since there are six openings for every qualified applicant. When you partner with IN Compass Health, your hospital enjoys all of the advantages of a hospitalist program while we handle all of the challenges.
We contract with hospitals to staff and manage inpatient care, providing a team of hospitalists, professional management and administrative support, including billing and reimbursement expertise and services. Providing 24-hour coverage at our clients’ facilities, our onsite and on-call hospitalists also provide continuous support to other areas of the hospital on an as-needed basis—particularly for unassigned patients in the emergency room.
