Abstract

Over the next decade, there is a predicted shortage of nonmalignant hematologist to maintain the workforce in the United States. To address this, the American Society of Hematology described the creation of the healthcare systems-based hematologist (SBH). The role of SBH has the potential to provide high-value, cost-conscious care to the healthcare system. In 2011, an Anticoagulation and Bleeding Management Medical Directorship position for a SBH was created at our healthcare system. We described our 6-year experience as SBH at a 750-bed tertiary academic medical center to improve clinical outcomes while reducing costs. Via four different initiatives, we were able to provide high-value, cost-conscious care as SBH by reducing cost of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia management, optimizing blood product utilization using goal-directed algorithms, reducing inappropriate thrombophilia testing and improving inferior vena cava filter retrieval rates. To ensure continuing success as a SBH, business plans need to include education, enforcement, monitoring, feedback, validation of safety and outcomes and a shared vision among leadership.
