Hospital Care Consultants was founded in 2003 to support rural and suburban hospitals in their desire to improve the inpatient care within their facilities.
Hospital Care Consultants designs its programs to fit the specific needs of its client hospitals. Our client hospitals are always concerned about compassionate and appropriate, cost-effective patient care, within the scope of the capabilities of the facility and the local specialists. Every case that could be admitted but gets transferred or treated on an outpatient basis is additional revenue the facility does not receive.
Hospital Care Consultants works closely with its client hospitals, the local primary care physicians, and the emergency department physicians to maximize the appropriate admissions that can be handled within the facility.
Generally, Hospital Care Consultants’ client hospitals see an increase in admissions of 10% – 15% and a reduction in ED transfers of up to 20%. As an added benefit, client hospitals routinely find patient satisfaction improves, primary care physicians are happier and more supportive of the hospital, and staff morale increases.
In addition to helping client hospitals start new programs, Hospital Care Consultants is often called upon to help hospitals revamp existing programs that are not meeting their intended goals. Well-managed hospital medicine programs are able to meet the goals of the various stakeholders and achieve the expected extensive benefits.
By partnering with Hospital Care Consultants, the specialist in rural and suburban hospital medicine programs across the country, our client hospitals can take advantage of our experience, avoid the pitfalls of the learning curve, and share best practices with other client hospitals within our network.
