The Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) recently announced Adfinitas Health as the first organization to sign on as part of its new institutional partner program, which offers customized memberships for select hospital medicine management companies and health systems with large hospitalist groups. Each program partner will receive benefits specifically designed to meet its own unique needs.
“We are excited to launch the institutional partner program with an organization that truly defines being a leader in healthcare and in hospital medicine,” says Laurence Wellikson, MD, MHM, Chief Executive Officer of SHM. “The synergies that will follow with Adfinitas and future institutional partners will ensure SHM is at the forefront of the hospital medicine movement, providing hospitalists with the resources they need to improve patient care.”
As an institutional partner, Adfinitas Health will receive deeper discounts on SHM membership, custom policy webinars and educational opportunities and other benefits tailored to the specific to meet with ongoing professional development of company providers and staff.
“We strive to be an employer of choice for hospitalists – physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants,” notes Douglas Mitchell, MD, MBA, co-founder and CEO of Adfinitas Health. “We know that our providers look to SHM as a resource for clinical and professional development, and by becoming an institutional partner, we hope to support that growth objective.”
