A BUPRENORPHINE PROGRAM FOR HOSPITALIZED PATIENTS WITH OPIOID USE DISORDER INCREASES INPATIENT TREATMENT AND OUTPATIENT FOLLOW-UP IN ADDICTION TREATMENT
SHM Converge 2021
Background: Despite evidence that the use of medications for patients with opioid use disorder (OUD) leads to reduced mortality and improved engagement in outpatient addiction treatment, these life-saving medications are underutilized in the hospital setting. This study reports the outcomes of a hospitalist-led interprofessional and multidisciplinary inpatient program, known as the B-Team (buprenorphine team), to […]

A NEW MODEL FOR OSTEOPOROSIS CARE THROUGH A HOSPITALIST-LED FRACTURE LIAISON SERVICE
SHM Converge 2021
Background: Fracture Liaison Services (FLS) are traditionally outpatient-based and led by orthopedists or endocrinologists. In the United States, over 1 million patients are hospitalized yearly with osteoporotic fractures and internal medicine hospitalists are frequently involved in their co-management. Purpose: Internal medicine hospitalists have an integral role in the prompt recognition and early treatment of patients […]

AN INTENSIVE HIGH UTILIZER INTERVENTION DOES NOT REDUCE HOSPITAL READMISSIONS: THE CHAMP RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
SHM Converge 2021
Background: A small number of patients account for a disproportionate number of hospital readmissions. The Complex High Admission Management Program (CHAMP) is designed to improve care and reduce hospitalizations for frequently readmitted patients. Non-randomized studies of CHAMP found reductions in readmission but may be subject to regression to the mean. We conducted a randomized trial […]
