We are changing the standard of hospital care in a very big way
Reactive care is the greatest constraint hospitals face and it exacts a massive price. Details are missed and windows close. Complications multiply. Patients suffer. Days and resources are wasted. Yet reactive care is considered normal.
Proactive care delivers dramatically different results. But proactive care is possible only when doctors and nurses coordinate with the patient at the bedside to plan ahead and stay ahead.
Proactive care requires structured interdisciplinary bedside rounds
To deliver the care our patients deserve with the efficiency everyone requires, we developed high-performance SIBR® rounds, also known as Structured Interdisciplinary Bedside Rounds. During high-performance SIBR® rounds, the doctor and nurse come together with the patient to cross-check vital information, make adjustments to a shared plan of care, and identify actions to drive progress and recovery.
But active listening and collaborative cross-checking, interdisciplinary goal-setting and proactive scenario planning — these are complex, profession-specific skills that have never been sufficiently defined, taught, or expected in modern hospitals. Until now.
Proactive care offers hospital leaders control over outcomes
Leaders can leverage high-performance SIBR® rounds to turn hospital units into efficient engines of proactive care. These units are known as Accountable Care Units. Outcomes achievable with the ACU® Care Model include:
- 10-20% reductions in length of stay
- 25% reductions in complications of care
- 25% reductions in in-hospital mortality
- 10-50% reductions in 30-readmissions for age-matched controls from the same hospital
- $250-1,000+ lower cost per case
- 2-3x increases in employee engagement and teamwork scores
