ACU Commonwealth Case Study

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.
