Managing bariatrics patients can be complex and challenging. The typical treatment continuum ranges from outpatient-driven metabolic and weight management services to inpatient or acute events such as bariatric surgery. Patients may be referred from several points, including specialties like orthopedics and spine, or from primary care physicians (PCPs). To be effective, bariatrics program must engage a multi-disciplinary clinical team. The multiple locations, clinicians and pathways, combined with extended treatment timelines, require coordination services to achieve good outcomes and overall efficiency.
