ACU Forum event notes:
RBWH is one of a group of innovative hospitals preparing to launch its implementation of the Accountable Care Unit (ACU) model including Structured Interdisciplinary Bedside Rounds. The first ACU will launch within Cancer Care Services and the care model is under consideration within a number of other departments.
The ACU care model facilitates efficient multidisciplinary rounds that include effective care planning and improvements in ward-level performance and reductions in outlier inpatients. It has been consistently associated with improvements in clinical outcomes, costs, patient satisfaction, interdisciplinary collaboration, and staff morale.
