Hospital medicine is a medical specialty that exists as a branch of internal or family medicine, focusing on the care of acutely ill and electively hospitalized patients. The primary focus may include direct patient care or co-management or patients, with other specialists. Hospitalists take an active role in patient care and work with other members of the care team, to try to provide the safest and best care possible in the hospital setting. They also may be involved in hospital committee roles, given their expertise and collaboration with various interdisciplinary teams in the hospital.
Hospitalists typically do not follow patients in an office, after the patient leaves the inpatient setting. They may consult or attend at some postacute care facilities, such as skilled rehab, or inpatient rehab settings.
