MCG Health, part of the Hearst Health network, and a leading provider of informed care strategies, announces Associate Managing Editor, Sabitha Rajan, MD, MSc, will speak at the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) annual conference on Mar. 25, 2019, at 3:15 p.m., in National Harbor, Maryland. Dr. Rajan will co-present the session “Caring for the Complex Medically Ill” along with Mauricio Sardan, MD, a clinician from Sound Physicians, a provider-founded and led organization whose goal is the optimization of post-acute care.
In their session, Dr. Rajan and Dr. Sardan will define what constitutes a “medically complex” patient, in addition to variants of this population, the chronically critically ill. An additional learning objective for attendees will include analysis of models within anesthesia, pediatrics, and how MCG care guidelines define “multiple condition management.” Finally, the presenters will cover what clinicians and/or hospital systems have been doing to address the needs of this population in relation to scheduling/staffing, readmission risk reduction, and post-acute care planning.
The Society of Hospital Medicine annual conference, Hospital Medicine 2019 (HM19), is billed as the largest national gathering of hospitalists in the United States. HM19 advertises a comprehensive schedule of educational and networking opportunities designed specifically for the hospital medicine professional.
