Overview: Physicians are key in case management department with optimal outcomes. Certainly, the key physician roles are the physician advisor and the hospitalist. This webinar will focus on these two roles specifically, as well as the roles of high-volume admitters in general. The role of the physician advisor in hospital case management is a varied role. Not every hospital has an internal physician advisor. If a hospital does not have an internal physician advisor, it usually has an external physician advisor. Rarely are physicians prepared to this role. Additionally, rarely are case managers or case management leaders prepared for implementing and/or collaborating with physicians in this role. The collaborative role of the physician advisor and those in the case management department is one of the lynchpins to assist the department and practicing physicians to positively impact hospital outcomes.
Attendees will understand the role of the physician advisor, the hospitalist, other key physician stakeholders, and their collaborative responsibility with the case management department—RN case managers, social worker case managers, and leadership.
Our speaker will focus on methods to ensure best-practice strategies for aligning themselves and the case management department with the practices of key physician stakeholders.
