The #1 Solution to Fragmented Hospital Care

💡 We are frontline clinicians. We invented Structured Interdisciplinary Bedside Rounds (SIBR) for care teams and a better nursing handover for nurses.

🛠 Since 2010, hundreds of hospital units have used 1Unit tools, training, and software to achieve remarkable results, such as:

A PI project so successful we made it a company

We are hospital professionals, like you. We reinvented frontline teamwork on our own units and we have helped hundreds of others since 2010.

Our care model was supposed to just make patients safer, but it turned out that it also improved patient satisfaction scores, length of stay, and costs of care.

Face the hidden burden of fragmented hospital care

Many challenges you’re facing have a common root cause: fragmented care.

That’s good news, because fragmented care is solvable in ways that physicians and nurses prefer.

Every unit-level outcome from CLABSIs to LOS to HCAHPS has a common input: the quality of clinical teamwork and communication.

There’s no simpler way to improve such a broad range of outcomes.

A group of all-stars doesn't always make an all-star team

It’s not enough to have skilled staff. Commercial aviation is safe not because pilots are brilliant, but because cockpit teamwork is a finely-honed science.

The finely-honed science of clinical teamwork exists, and it’s available today in our programs.

To improve outcomes, don't focus on outcomes

Start at the bedside. Focus on moments that matter, like nursing handover and interdisciplinary rounds.

Invest in daily routines — small improvements add up quickly.

Start with nurses — then expect more from doctors:

Nurses First

1Unit's Nurses First program hardwires the Triple-E Handover to improve the culture, safety, and efficiency profile of nursing care; support young and temporary nurses; and create readiness for interdisciplinary rounds.

1Unit invented SIBR® rounds, bringing the bedside nurse, physician and allied health to the patient’s bedside to synthesize a mutually supported plan of care in an efficient, patient-centered experience.
