‘Accountable Care Unit’ at Regina’s Pasqua Hospital proves successful

Canada’s first Accountable Care Unit

This Canadian news article (video) discusses some of the improvements seen on Canada’s first Accountable Care Unit (ACU® care model) with Structured Interdisciplinary Bedside Rounds (SIBR® rounds). With the successes seen, even at this early stage, the journalist goes on to highlight that future spread of the ACU care model is highly likely within the Province.

The 1Unit team love the smiles on the faces of the staff, patient and family in this video. We also love the comments from the doctors, nurses and families about the different benefits that they feel are happening.

Great work from the team at Canada’s first Accountable Care Unit.
