Dr. Schneidermann considers herself an academic hospitalist with primary care roots, interested in how vulnerable and marginalized patients transition from the inpatient service back to the community. Through her inpatient attending and work with ambulatory programs, she has been able to directly witness the successes and challenges of patients’ transitions and generate feedback to the providers and systems that manage their care.
As the Medical Director of San Francisco’s Medical Respite, she works with multiple stakeholders including ten referring San Francisco hospitals, the Department of Public Health, and a wonderfully talented and committed staff to provide transitional and recuperative care for discharged homeless patients. Dr. Schneidermann works on strategic planning and quality improvement processes and collaborates with other respite sites across the country to gather and evaluate data that may influence national policy and reimbursement for respite services.
Dr. Schneidermann has also been involved in designing and implementing a randomized control trial (Support from Hospital to Home for Elders Trial) generously funded by the Moore Foundation, to assess the impact of a Transitional Care Team on the service utilization of vulnerable elderly patients admitted to SFGH. Now that enrollment has ended, Dr. Schneidermann is working to help roll out the project as usual care at SFGH.
Outside of SFGH, Dr. Schneidermann serves on the governing board of the CMS funded Community Care Transitions Project, recently awarded to the San Francisco community to help improve care transitions city-wide. Within this capacity, she works with the state’s QIO and other organizations committed to reducing readmissions and improving the patient experience.
Dr. Schneidermann is also committed to mentoring mid-level providers at SFGH and within the DPH. She directly supervises inpatient and ambulatory nurse practitioners and physician assistants and is also the chair of the Committee for Interdisciplinary Practice at SFGH.
One of the things Dr. Schneidermann likes best about working at San Francisco General Hospital is the time with trainees. In addition to bedside teaching, she’s enjoyed creating curricula on multidisciplinary teamwork, care of the difficult patient, as well as Discharge Planning and Transitions in Care.
She also enjoys good food and believes that all people, regardless of means, should have access to healthy foods. She is the co-founder of a program called HeartBeets which works to increase the consumption of natural foods among hospital staff and the patient communities served by San Francisco General Hospital and works with the Wellness Center to help advance a healthier food environment at the hospital.
