Abstract

Purpose of review This review summarizes the most recent evidence regarding the impact of hospitalist co-management of surgical patients, with a particular emphasis on value. Value is defined as quality (clinical outcomes) divided by cost. Recent findings As the engagement of hospitalists in surgical co-management originated in adult hospital medicine, we will review the adult and pediatric literature. We will also examine the inclusion of pediatric hospitalists as key members of improvement teams focused on improving outcomes and value for surgical patients; while such teams often evolve out of co-management partnerships, they may demonstrate impact beyond the daily care model and thus have an outsized impact on value. Summary We conclude by commenting on the selective application of the co-management model, based on the literature, to optimize value. Introduction The USA is currently experiencing a crisis due to an the need to seek innovative care and payment models unsustainable rise in healthcare spending, prompting that focus on increasing healthcare value [1, 2]. Value in 248 Hospital Medicine (A Statile and N Unaka, Section Editors) this context is defined as quality of care divided by cost. the adult literature, followed by a discussion of the In this review, we explore
