Hospitalists Are the Future of OB/GYN Medicine

By obhg.admin on April 19th, 2013

In the ever-changing landscape of women’s healthcare, it’s no longer enough to keep up with those changes but rather to anticipate and prepare for what comes next.We at Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) believe the hospitalist model is best suited to continue elevating women’s healthcare no matter what the future may bring. And we’re not alone. Dr. J. Joshua Kopelman, Chair of American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (District VIII) firmly stated at the recent SOGH Annual meeting, “OB/GYN hospitalists in this country are the wave of the future. There’s no question about it.” Current research seems to confirm this:

  • Accenture reports the percentage of physicians in private practice declined from 57% in 2000 to 39% in 2012.
  • OB/GYNs listed medical liability (65.3%) and financial viability of their practice (44.3%) as their top two professional concerns in a 2008 ACOG survey. Both of these issues are resolved in a hospitalist model.
  • 87% of physicians surveyed in 2012 cited the expense of running a business as their chief concern.
  • According to a 2011 Medscape study, OB/GYNs who are partners in private practice earn $15,000-$25,000 less than their employed colleagues.
  • Looking toward the future, a 2011 ACOG report predicts a shortage of 9,000 to 14,000 OB/GYNs over the next 20 years, which may be why ACOG strongly encourages collaborative care such as the hospitalist model.
