Hot Spotting - Innovative Approaches to Caring for the Very Ill | Wing of Zock

Interview with Jeffrey Brenner MD, executive director of the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers and one of the persons behind hotspotting.

Dr Brenner:

Sit down at the foot of the bed, ask patients open-ended questions, and find out what’s going on in these peoples’ lives.

This is something that all physicians at all training levels should do. It’s an important step that we all too often skip in the pursuit of ‘efficiency’. We don’t really know a patient’s disease if we don’t know the patient.

Find out more about the AAMC’s Hot Spotting initiative and get involved.
