Moving toward fully integrated, patient-centered care on inpatient hospital units requires radically transforming current unit and hospital structures and processes. One promising new care model, the Accountable Care Unit (ACU), offers alternative structures and processes. One process, Structured Interdisciplinary Bedside Rounds (SIBR) puts patients at the center of care, bringing the interprofessional care team to patients’ bedsides every day.
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.
1Unit's flagship program, the Accountable Care Unit care model. Adopted and implemented at hospitals on 3 continents, 5 countries, 20 US and 2 Canadian states. The ACU® care model has been implemented in a variety of settings including academic, community, urban, rural hospitals and in domains as diverse as ICUs, aged care, rehab, ortho- and neuro-surgery. The future of care is here.
