1Unit Resources provide insights, case studies, and outcomes examples from different healthcare settings utilizing the 1Unit Programs, e.g. Accountable Care Unit® care model and Structured Interdisciplinary Bedside Rounds (SIBR® rounds).
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.
Findings provide evidence that the ACU structure and SIBR process have a dual benefit of improved job satisfaction and patient quality of care.
