The purpose of the Society of Hospital Medicine's (SHM's) Practice Management Section is to create a community that provides nonprovider SHM members engaged in practice management a forum in which to actively collaborate, advance hospitalist practice management and more substantively contribute to the Society. The Section will focus on the following goals:

  1. Providing members responsible for or interested in practice management a “voice” within the Society to contribute to and impact change for the specialty
  2. Exchange of information focused on Clinical, Strategic, Business and Financial Operations of Hospital Medicine Practices
  3. Developing and disseminating Best Practices for management in Hospital Medicine
  4. Provide more consistent and robust practice management specific educational sessions through existing and new webinars
  5. Develop a new source of membership and area of professional expertise for the Society

Connect with other practice administrators via SHM's Hospital Medicine Exchange, an exclusive online member community for networking and collaboration featuring discussion forums, resource libraries and a member directory.
