Many physicians who provide medical services to post-acute care facilities do so in addition to their work in their own practices and making hospital rounds. It’s because of this that it becomes understandable that their practices often take priority. It’s also understandable if returning calls to the facility might be put off until the end of a long day, or quick facility visits get squeezed into a busy week – or skipped.

They care only for patients in post-acute care settings. Primary care physicians at traditional post-acute facilities typically care for as many as 1,000 patients. Post-hospitalists, on the other hand, care for 150 to 200 patients.

according to CMS. General Medicine, The Post-Hospitalist Company, works with facilities to reduce these rates by as much as 56%. The typical readmitted-patient’s hospital care costs 33% more than the average hospital patient’s care; in 2010, 30-day hospital readmissions of post-acute care patients added up to a $4.3 billion bill to Medicare.

More importantly, they put patients through unnecessary physical and emotional trauma and increased risk for things like bed sores, hospital-acquired infections and other deconditioning associated with transitions of post-acute patients.
