Night Hospitalist Company, LLC Launches First Nighttime Hospitalist Telemedicine Solution

ROLLA, Mo., June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- As hospitals struggle to staff their floors in the face of an ongoing shortage of hospitalists, one company has introduced a cost-effective way for hospitals to maintain safe continuity of care. Night Hospitalist Company, LLC (NHC, provides nighttime hospital coverage by telephone -- and demand is so great the service will soon be available nationwide.

Hospitalists -- physicians working full-time in hospitals, instead of dividing their time between private practice and hospital rounds -- are in such short supply, many daytime hospitalists are being overworked. Hiring a full-time nocturnist, or nighttime doctor, is expensive.

NHC, by comparison, provides reliable telephonic care from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. for a fraction of the cost of hiring a staff physician. All NHC physicians are Board-certified or Board-eligible internal medicine M.D.s or D.O.s with extensive hospital experience. Each is qualified to handle emergency room calls, floor calls and stable ICU admissions. The NHC solution is seamless and designed to free hospitals up to concentrate their resources on patient care: NHC covers its own physicians' malpractice insurance and documents all patient-related activity overnight using a web-based proprietary software called MDHandOff ( All overnight changes in medical management are transmitted to the correct hospital floors for insertion into patients' medical records. The company contracts directly with hospitals for ease of billing.

"NHC is the first solution of its kind," stated company founder Dr. Yomi Olusanya. "We exist to give hospitals a viable way to provide high-quality patient care at night at a cost far lower than that of hiring on-site physicians. Our clients are not only weathering the hospitalist shortage and unexpected physician absences, they're actually finding NHC to be a real alternative to full-time nocturnists."

NHC physicians are also available to cover night calls for physicians in private practice as well as for nursing homes and acute care facilities. The company is currently evaluating telemedicine vendors, with an eye to remotely examining and evaluating patients via video telemetry. NHC serves facilities in Missouri but will soon have night hospitalists practicing across the U.S. To learn more, visit
