  • Introduction

    Physicians primarily focused in medical care of hospitalized patients, known as hospitalists. This hospital medicine is been increasingly emerging in the field of medicine since their introduction in the 1990s. Specializing in hospital medicine, their trend has brought forward a mixture of both benefits and criticism. However, a comparison of both sides of the picture ends in results favoring hospitalists as an indispensable and valuable addition to the field of inpatient medicine. As for the shortcomings faced in the regime, hospitalists participating in various healthcare programs, quality improvement projects and multiple innovation projects have come up with ways for evaluation of their existing agendas and introduction of newer strategies for their eradication and further improvement of healthcare quality. Things are changing in fast pace in healthcare. Medicine became customer care service as technology evolved and patient choices changed. Good medicine is relationship between institution and patient choices. Physician is a moderator in a given setting. Believe it or not, hospital medicine is the backbone of this change and revolution. That is why in decades, year 2016 became “year of Hospitalists”
