I don't delve into the world of hospitals, physicians and health care operations as much as I should. So when I was asked to interview Adam Singer, the CEO of IPC The Hospitalist Company, the biggest company (and a publicly traded one at that) managing a group of hospitalists–the internists who run patient care in more and more big and small facilities, I thought I should!
What I didn't realize is that not only does Adam know lots about the present and future of hospitalists and how that role has emerged in recent years, he also has some pretty strong views on the relationship between hospitals and doctors (keep 'em separate), bundling (no, thanks) and also the supply of physicians (let in more international docs or we're in a big hole). So it's a wide ranging discussion and one I think you'll enjoy. Here it is.
