VIDEO: Policy-focused SHM president thinks hospitalists can impact global, systems change


An original member of the Society of Hospital Medicine, new SHM Board President Ron Greeno, MD, MHM, is excited about helping to guide hospitalists into a new era of health system transformation.

The former chair of SHM’s Public Policy Committee, Dr. Greeno believes payment reforms like MACRA will have a “huge impact” on both hospitalists and the hospitals/health systems they work in. He expects hospital medicine, as a field, is well positioned for such changes and can play a vital role in systems change at the global level.

“In order to impact those things, hospitalists have to be ready to help change systems,” he said after his plenary address Tuesday at HM17.
