Time-motion studies pinpoint where hospitalists could save time
The first study, which had observers shadow hospitalists at Chicago’s Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, came up with these sobering figures: Hospitalists spend less than one-fifth of their day (17%) on direct patient care. Instead, they spend twothirds (64%) on indirect patient care, with communication taking up a good 25% of their day.
Patients who are paired with Care Navigators report feeling less anxiety, and an increased ability to self-manage their conditions between visits. And providers report increased job satisfaction from improved efficiency, and knowing their patients have access to care teams, and strategic support.
