Neurosurgery hospitalists will continue to be closely involved in the management of patients which undergo neurosurgery. In the first article, we discuss the tremendous potential of the service for improving the care for neurosurgical patients at Jefferson. We highlight the interactions with other services and the areas for potential growth. Further, we emphasize the need for constant feedback, which is necessary to improve the care provided by FHS.
In the second part of the article, we highlight the potential impact of FHS beyond the Jefferson Hospitals in Center City of Philadelphia, to other hospitals within the Jefferson network, and beyond Jefferson. We re-emphasize the educational opportunities FHS is able to provide for other neurosurgery hospitalists nationwide and on international level, and the future research and education program.
We hope that this article will increase understanding of other physicians of FHS work, and that it will open new interactions with other services both at Jefferson and beyond.
