Hospital Medicine Q & A

What is hospital medicine?

Hospital medicine is care from a licensed physician who treats a wide array of conditions you might encounter during hospitalization. You may require hospital care if you have a disease, illness, or injury, such as:

  • Pneumonia or other respiratory problems
  • An infectious disease
  • Kidney infections
  • Skin infections
  • Fractures or soft tissue tears
  • Head trauma
  • Appendicitis
  • Liver problems
  • Stroke, heart attack, or blood vessel disorders

The Synergy Health team can see you on an outpatient basis for primary care concerns during your hospital stay, and after you’ve been discharged to maximize continuity of care and your health.

What are the benefits of hospital medicine?

If you have a serious illness or disease, some of the many benefits associated with hospital medicine include:

  • Efficiency of treatment
  • Improved health outcomes
  • Reduced length of hospital stays
  • Better outcomes for complex cases
  • Reduced symptoms
  • Lower risk of complications

The Synergy Health team offers general hospital medicine and works closely with hospital staff to ensure you receive quality care and the best outcome. 

What happens during hospital medicine?

After you’re admitted to the hospital, your Synergy Health specialist helps coordinate your care. They evaluate you by reviewing your symptoms and medical history and completing a physical exam. Your provider might order or review blood tests, urine tests, lung function tests, X-rays, or other diagnostic tests to confirm your diagnosis, detect possible complications, and develop a treatment plan.

Which treatments might I require?

Based on results from diagnostic testing, your Synergy Health provider might recommend one or more of the following treatments to optimize healing, reduce the length of your hospital stay, and get you on the road to recovery quickly:

  • Prescription medications
  • Respiratory therapy for pneumonia
  • IV nutrition, fluids, or medicines
  • Health education
  • Dietary changes
  • Surgical procedures
  • Physical, occupational, or speech therapy
  • Other outpatient referrals

After you’re discharged from the hospital, your Synergy Health specialist follows up with you regarding your care. They make sure you’re feeling better and schedule follow-up visits when necessary to ensure you stay healthy and avoid complications.
