Physicians Inpatient Care Specialists (MDICS), Maryland's largest private hospitalist group, is dedicated to partnering with health care systems, hospitals and post-acute care centers to provide high-quality, cost-effective integrated medical solutions and services for our partners and patients. Since 2007, MDICS has been implementing quality initiatives to improve the patient care experience, decrease hospital costs, reduce readmissions and length of stay, as well as improving documentation and coding to minimize hospital acquired conditions.
Effectively Managing Costs and Improving Outcomes
Caring for patients has become increasingly challenging as reimbursements decline, costs escalate and regulations become more stringent. More and more, hospitals and post-acute care centers are turning to inpatient care providers to manage costs, provide quality care and improve outcomes.
- MDICS delivers effective and efficient medical services for our partner hospitals and post-acute centers.
Achieving Measurable Results with Integrated Teams
- We have established integrated care teams in 16 hospitals as well as over 40 post-acute care centers, and work closely with our partners to expand existing programs. Our unified approach to care enables hospitals and post-acute care centers to achieve measurable results in optimum patient outcomes and elevated patient satisfaction scores.
- We achieve the best results for our partner hospitals and post-acute care centers by providing 24-hour daily care coordination with physicians, nurses, discharge planners and families. MDICS coordinates quality initiatives to reduce readmissions, identifies core measures and quality standards, and works to improve the patient care experience based on those measures.
