Does the hospitalist program reduce medical costs?

This is an excellent question. There are some studies that show a significant savings, chiefly by shortening the length of stay and planning further studies as an outpatient. Some of this is shifting cost to the outpatient setting. The key to reducing cost over all is to work together as a community especially with the Primary Care Providers but also with families and community programs that promote health.
