Traditional rounding assignments work well in many scenarios, but often, due to hospital layout, can lead to inefficiency, with hospitalists’ valuable time consumed by lengthy walks between patient encounters.  Geographic rounding allows for efficient workflow, maximizing the time spent with patients.

The geographic rounding approach places a physician near his/her patients, resulting in several performance improvements.  The localized team approach enhances communication between physicians and their teams, patients, and families.
