image002.jpeg

At a glance: Hospitalized patients have a slightly higher risk of dying when treated by older hospitalists—internal medicine specialists who oversee the care of acutely ill hospitalized patients. Physician age made no difference in patient mortality rates for doctors who treated large numbers of patients.

Age played no role in patient readmission rates but older physicians were slightly more likely to incur greater treatment costs.
