Looking for resources for hospitalists? Try our new and improved Web site

May 2007

Published in the May 2007 issue of Today’s Hospitalist.

As the producers of a monthly magazine, one of our challenges at Today’s Hospitalist is to keep you up-to-date in a fast-moving “and increasingly wired “world. That’s why I’m happy to announce that we’ve rolled out a new, improved version of our Web site that offers features and resources for hospitalists that go beyond what we can provide in these pages.

For example, we’ve put together stories on key topics, from handoffs to surgical co-management, and put them in one easy-to-find location. We’ve put our popular columns like Coding Tips, What Works and Career Center into collections so you can quickly find information that’s vital to your practice.

Interactive features like Sound Off and the online Survey let you not only voice your opinion, but instantly see what your colleagues think. This month, these features are exploring board certification for hospitalists, as well as the ideal number of work shifts and patient encounters.

Because we realize that many visitors to our site are probably looking for stories they’ve read or heard about in Today’s Hospitalist, we’ve kept an online archive of every article published in the magazine. But we’re supplementing that coverage with e-mail alerts to keep you up-to-date.

We currently offer an e-mail alert listing articles in the current issue, and we’ll soon publish a quarterly e-mail newsletter on inpatient diabetes management.

The next time you’re online, take a moment to look over the resources and features we’ve put together for you at www.todayshospitalist.com. I think you’ll like what you see.
