Authors: Cheng HQ
Neurosurgeons and hospitalists are turning to comanagement arrangements to address medical problems in surgical patients. Compared with traditional medical consultation, comanagement lets the hospitalist share authority and responsibility for patient care. It is associated with improved provider satisfaction and more efficient care, but impact on clinical outcomes is uncertain. Shared responsibility for patient care requires careful planning to avoid conflicts and fragmentation of care.
