Dashboards and Performance Reporting for Hospitalists

Hospitalist leaders must be able to answer questions such as:

  • How do I measure the performance of my group?
  • How do I measure the performance of each hospitalist?
  • Where do I get hospital medicine data for my practice?
  • How do I format the reports?
  • How do I create a dashboard for reporting on my hospital medicine practice?

The following resources from the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) can help hospitalists answer these questions for their own hospital medicine practices
