"U-ACT" Unit-Based Accountable Care Teams Improve Patient Outcomes

Unit-Based Accountable Care Teams (U-ACT) are a collaborative between Nurses and Physicians that include Infection Control, Patient Logistics, and Environmental Health Services. Despite diversity within individual unit teams, U-ACT groups share the common goal of improving patient outcomes and clinical quality indicators across the organization. Nurse and Physician leadership on each U-ACT group assures system wide integration of best practices for achievement of the highest level of quality and safety for patients. Unit teams meet in their respective services line and collaborate with other U-ACT teams to share best practices.
