2020 State of Hospital Medicine (SOHM) Report: A Preview
About the Report
The State of Hospital Medicine (SoHM) Report defines industry standards and is the most comprehensive resource on hospital medicine group configuration and operation. Released biennially, it includes the most recent data on practice demographics, staffing levels, turnover, staff growth, compensation models and financial support for solid evidence-based management decisions from across the country. It combines data collected in the State of Hospital Medicine Survey and data from the Medical Group Management Association’s Physician Compensation and Production Survey.
Whether you are a practice administrator, physician, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, academic, HMG leader, hospitalist management company or a hospital/medical group executive, this Report contains regional and national trends in hospital medicine to help make decisions and improve groups.
The 2020 State of Hospital Medicine Report also includes access to the COVID-19 Addendum, an additional dataset that explores how hospital medicine groups responded and adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 Addendum is exclusively available to purchasers of the Report.
The Report and Addendum package is available for purchase in digital, print, or a bundle of both.
About the Survey
The Report is sourced from data collected from individuals and groups via a Survey SHM distributes nationwide to HMGs every other year. Participation from groups across the nation is crucial to the Report’s relevance and success, and as such SHM continually seeks to improve the diversity and scope of participants with each iteration.
SHM’s Practice Analysis Committee and staff work together to review and refine the survey questions and then to analyze survey results for the State of Hospital Medicine Report.
The topics included in the 2020 SoHM Report are more wide-ranging than ever before. In addition to traditional questions regarding the scope of services, staffing and scheduling models, leadership configuration, and financial support, this year’s Report includes brand-new questions specifically dedicated to pediatric hospital medicine groups, expanded information on NP/PA roles, and data on diversity in HM physician leadership.
