ACU Commonwealth Case Study
An ACU commonwealth case study that outlines improvements in clinical, cost, and satisfaction outcomes as a result of implementing the Accountable Care Unit (ACU® care model). The Unit is a 35-bed medical unit in a public tertiary hospital.
The case study is particularly interesting as it highlights an example of some of the innovations we see Units creating to improve additional clinical issues. In this case, components added to the ACU standard daily processes resulted in improvements in nutritional screening and daily weights.

Findings provide evidence that the ACU structure and SIBR process have a dual benefit of improved job satisfaction and patient quality of care.
Dr Jason Stein discusses the greatest constraint hospital leaders overlook – proactive care of patients and the limitations of maintaining the status quo of reactive care.
1Unit’s flagship program, the Accountable Care Unit care model, optimized for a pediatric setting. The ACU pediatric care model ensures the patient is the center of the team, includes the family and opens communication between all team members. Decrease length of stay, complications, adverse events, mortality, inappropriate resource utilization. Increase patient and staff satisfaction.
