Delphi of TeamHealth
TeamHealth is the innovative resource for specialty hospital medicine programs in Orthopedics, General Surgery and Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN). Our programs provide client hospitals with guaranteed 24/7 emergency department (ED) call coverage and in-house specialty coverage, enabling them to increase market share by reducing patient transfers and improving emergent surgical experience.
Freeing local orthopedic surgeons from unassigned ED call enables them to perform more elective cases. TeamHealth provides a team of dedicated orthopedic surgeons who will evaluate emergent patients, performs surgeries as needed, provide follow-up care and in-house consults and support the medical staff, thereby improving your patients' access to better quality care while growing your orthopedic service line. Clients have found that our services reduce outmigration, improve market share and accelerate the financial contributions from ED call.
TeamHealth implements structure and protocols that allow your hospital to accept and appropriately treat all emergent general surgical patients, including transfers. Our services help prevent and often eliminate patient outmigration and diversions while allowing private physicians to devote more time to specialized areas of interest and treat incremental new cases. In our experience, hospitals that implement a surgicalist program typically experience a significant increase in surgical volume.
TeamHealth's OB/GYN hospitalist program helps your hospital deliver safer and better care to women. Our team works in-house 24/7/365 to cover emergent patients and manage all patients during labor. We triage and deliver all unassigned patients, and for private patients, upon request, we provide triage, communicate with their private OB/GYN physicians to advise them of when they actually need to be at the hospital and remain available to support local physicians with deliveries as needed. Our services have proven to create a safer and more comfortable birth experience for mothers, babies and families and offer a safe place for private OB/GYN physicians to practice.
