One Key, Many Doors

SIBR Enables Excellence Across the Quadruple Aim

#1: Reduce hospital-acquired conditions

SIBR teams review quality-safety checklists together at the bedside daily, which can prevent 1-of-4 harm events.

#2: Prevent patient and family frustration

SIBR Rounds proactively answer common questions.

#3: Protect against discharge delays

SIBR Rounds hardwire the ideal discharge huddle, ensuring that physicians and care managers always give an EDD and include the patient, family, and bedside nurse in transition planning.

#4: Reduce excess costs every day

SIBR Rounds prevent waste and care fragmentation, improving care while also saving millions each year.

Partner Testimonials

Quality improved while reducing costs by about $1,500 – $2,000 per patient per stay before versus after, and it also improved the same when we compared to a control group across the city.

Length of Stay initiatives are just agony for everybody. So to have a major LOS initiative made much easier, where a lot of the work is done – that’s what I liked.

Not only is SIBR a time saver because we’re getting all the people that you need to talk to you throughout the day and we’re getting them all together, it’s also a much more fun way to work. It’s a more collaborative way to work.

This is more than just a Unit, this is a culture change. The other floors want to look like the ACU… This is the way to do it.

The ACU with SIBR rounds model is by far the most efficient, effective, safest method that I’ve ever been part of. It’s been a privilege for me to be part of this – the highlight of my career.
