Inpatient Medical Associates to Showcase Personalized Recruiting Application and Scribe Program at HM12 in San Diego

LIVINGSTON, NJ--(Marketwire - Mar 30, 2012) - Inpatient Medical Associates (www.imahospitalists.com), a provider of hospitalist services, will debut its personalized iPad-based recruiting application at the Society of Hospital Medicine's annual meeting HM12, April 1-4, 2012, at the San Diego Convention Center. The medical group will also showcase its innovative approach in using scribes to support hospitalists' quality of practice.

"We identified the need to develop a personalized solution that quickly and effectively matches providers' practice preferences, recreational interests and geographical preference with available positions," explains Raymond Iannaccone, MD, FACEP, president and chief executive officer of Inpatient Medical Associates. "Through the eco-friendly app, recruiting information is sent electronically to interested providers before they even leave our exhibit booth."

The second innovation to début at HM12 is Inpatient Medical Associate's hospitalist-specific scribe program, which is intended to improve physician productivity, patient satisfaction and physician quality of practice. While emergency physician groups have used scribes for years, the practice is still new to hospitalists. The use of scribes has been shown to increase patient satisfaction and enhance physician productivity, which is critical in today's hospitalist practice where up to 34% of a hosptialist's time can be devoted to documentation, even when charting using an electronic medical record.

"Healthcare reform places greater emphasis on reducing lengths of stay, readmissions and supporting value-based purchasing. Our scribe program supports our commitment to achieving exceptional clinical and operational performance while remaining focused on patient satisfaction," states Maninder "Dolly" Abraham, MD, medical director for Inpatient Medical Associates.

Inpatient Medical Associates is exhibiting at Booth 213 at the 2012 Society of Hospitalist Medicine's annual HM12 conference in San Diego.
