We’re very pleased to announce that the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) has joined AmericanEHR as a Professional Society Partner. The Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) is a professional medical society representing more than 14,000 practicing hospitalists in the U.S. dedicated to providing exceptional care to the hospitalized patient. Practitioners of hospital medicine include physicians (“hospitalists”) and non-physician providers who engage in clinical care, teaching, research, or leadership in the field of general hospital medicine. In addition to their core expertise managing the clinical problems of acutely ill hospitalized patients, hospital medicine practitioners work to enhance the performance of hospitals and healthcare systems.
SHM joins 18 other partner medical societies and 7 Content Partner health IT organizations to support AmericanEHR. In joining, SHM is utilizing AmericanEHR’s peer reviewed EHR survey to gauge satisfaction of hospitalists with their EHR systems. The resulting data will also be benchmarked against other specialties using AmericanEHR’s historical data.
