In brief: They should.

Hospitalists and office-based primary care physicians should be in regular contact about diagnoses, medical history, test results and follow-up care needs.

In brief: Collaboration

of care should happen.
In situations where there is good communication - many aspects of your admission and health will be shared. Unfortunately, I have seen situations in which there is no or little collaboration.

In brief: Yes

Hospitalists are supposed to send medical records after discharge.
They may also give a call to your physician and give update about your condition, medications, further recommended tests and follow up.
