Co-Management is the shared responsibility, authority and accountability for the care of hospitalized patients.
Hospitalists today serve in a variety of Co-Management capacities with many other hospital-based specialties, including critical care, cardiology, GI and liver disease, oncology, palliative care and neurology. When it comes to successfully co-managing patients, it is crucial that groups develop a comprehensive plan that accounts for the needs and capacities of all parties.
5 Principles of Co-Management
- Defined roles, lines of authority, responsibilities, and boundaries
- Collaborative professional relationships with rules for managing conflict
- Equal standing and mutual respect between clinicians
- Non-retaliatory open communication among all parties involved
- Set metrics for review and evaluation
