After completing their doctorate of medicine, some physicians continue their education and become board-certified in subspecialties such as pediatrics, family medicine, internal medicine and hospitalist services.

First Docs is proud to provide the nation’s leading health care facilities with personalized hospitalist staffing services. First Docs hospitalists care for hospitalized patients, providing and coordinating care based on the patient’s unique needs.

Comprehensive Hospitalist Services:

First Docs’ hospitalists collaborate with hospitals to establish strong, jointly managed physician teams that place the patient at the center of care. In addition to providing improved patient-focused care, there are many benefits to adding hospitalists to a medical facility’s team. In particular, hospitalists help patients and medical institutions by:

Training and Clinical Supervision
As a physician-owned practice, all First Docs hospitalists complete a rigorous training and onboarding program led by Board Certified physician mentors. The on-site Medical Director and regional physician leadership ensure ongoing support, optimized workflows, and quality outcomes.

Improved Clinical Quality
Third-Party Hospitalist Services provide significant improvements in clinical outcomes, mortality rates, and patient safety metrics. First Docs hospitalists are more efficient and effective in treating and coordinating care, leading to more smooth transitions and reducing delays in care, risk of medical errors, and readmissions.

Improved Patient Satisfaction
Private hospitalist groups like First Docs are shown to provide more personalized care and face time with patients leading to higher satisfaction levels. Our ability to provide continuity of care post-discharge ensures patient needs are met throughout their healthcare journey.

Improved Financials
Partnering with First Docs allows hospital systems to benefit from large cost savings with reduced employed physician salaries, benefits, and the administrative burden relating to management and support. Additional revenue can be gained with reductions in length of stay and post-discharge cost savings.

Flexibility, Scalability & Accountability
First Docs has a wide reach and investment in physician recruitment and training. We can also more easily adjust hospitalist staffing to managing varying patient demand and volumes.

Quality control is ensured by our In-house Compliance Committee, comprised of key physician stakeholders, including Dr. Bhatia. Our operations team oversees routine audits of billing, coding, and documentation to ensure strict adherence to CMS guidelines and hospital bylaws and best practices.

Frequently Asked Questions

A hospitalist is a medical doctor who is board-certified in hospital medicine — a branch of internal medicine — and provides efficient, high-quality general medical care for hospital patients with diverse needs. Hospitalists closely monitor patients to ensure they receive appropriate, attentive and caring medical treatment during their hospital stay.

Because hospitalists are familiar with a range of specialties, they can provide various services across disciplines, including examining patients, ordering, evaluating and following up on labs, X-rays and test results, and prescribing medications and treatment plans.

Hospitals require a unique combination of synergism and teamwork to offer patients the best possible care and enable them to live their best lives. Hospitalists collaborate with other hospital physicians and health care providers to provide personalized, holistic, patient-forward care and treatment plans.

As a result, hospitals can offer a better quality of care, and patients benefit from personal attention and a 24/7 physician presence.

A hospitalist program refers to the coordination of care between hospitals and hospitalists. Because these medical professionals play a pivotal role in improving patient safety and enhancing care quality, the hospitalist sector has become a growing field, and programs continue to pop up across the county. The U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics reported approximately 44,000 practicing hospitalists in the United States. That number will continue growing as more hospitalist programs emerge and the demand for these services rises.
