I think the role of a hospitalist is very important. My main concern is in the "handoff" of care to the primary care physician following discharge. It has been reported that discharge summaries are not available about 75% of the time of the first follow up visit with the primary care physician. This makes continuity of care very difficult. The key is communication.
