Sound Physicians, a leading healthcare organization focused on improving quality and lowering cost throughout the acute episode of care, recently began providing hospitalist services in partnership with Northwest Texas Healthcare System. The new hospitalist service at Northwest complements and augments the excellent patient care already provided by its physicians. Today, the hospitalist team includes around-the-clock physician availability and improved efficiency of care for patients.
“The entire care team at Northwest – from referring physicians to consultants and nurses – is working collaboratively and seamlessly with the Sound Physicians hospitalist team with a common goal of driving improvements in outcomes,” said Dr. Brian Weis, Chief Medical Officer at Northwest.
“We are looking forward to our partnership with Northwest Texas Healthcare System,” commented Robert Bessler, MD, CEO of Sound Physicians. “By integrating our experience, leadership and proven performance management processes, our team can drive improved quality, efficiency and patient experience of care outcomes for the hospital and Amarillo community.”
Sound Physicians is the partner of choice for 45 Texas hospitals and employs more than 400 providers in the state. Working with the hospital’s administrative team, Sound Physicians introduced its workflow and communication platform, SoundConnect, and its new Brio mobile app to Northwest’s providers. The SoundConnect and Brio platforms were designed by physicians to optimize their workflow and communications to drive dramatic improvements in patient outcomes.
