Pediatric hospitalist comanagement of surgical patients: Structural, quality, and financial considerations

Abstract

Comanagement of surgical patients is occurring more commonly among adult and pediatric patients. These systems of care can vary according to institution type, comanagement structure, and type of patient. Comanagement can impact quality, safety, and costs of care. We review these implications for pediatric surgical patients. Journal of Hospital Medicine 2014;9:737–742. © 2014 Society of Hospital Medicine
