9 Advanced Team Skills that SIBR brings to your Units
Who We Serve
SIBR + Physicians
“I was skeptical at first — I’ve done interdisciplinary rounds and it wasn’t a great use of time — but I’m a believer now. SIBR is so quick and efficient, the patients love it, and it makes my whole rest of my day much more streamlined with substantially fewer interruptions.”
SIBR + Nurses
“I don’t know how … we haven’t done this yet. It just makes sense. It makes sense for patient safety, and for patient advocacy. Just to have the physician there and support me as nurse, and know that he or she has my back and I can communicate face-to-face with that physician. That’s very important to patient safety.”
SIBR + Care Managers
“We’ve been teaching the same way for 50 years, but with this care model we now teach delivery of care. This is exactly where healthcare is heading. Staff and trainees today need to understand that prescribing a therapy is the easy part. The hard part is getting a huge, complicated system to deliver that therapy to the right patient at the right time, while being alert enough to recognize-and-respond when therapy fails or patients drift off course. Traditional hospital care does none of that. But this care model does. This is the future. This is the ‘new way’ and the ‘old way’ just looks crude and unacceptable by comparison.”
– Unit Medical Leader
SIBR + Pharmacists
“I believe that pharmacists should see this because it’s a real eye opener in my opinion.
It’s the way pharmacy should be done in a hospital and not working in isolation, making your solutions and figuring out problems that don’t actually even exist, right?
Highlight of my career!”
SIBR + Patients
“The changes on the Unit have made my recent stay very different to my previous ones. I feel listened to. I feel like my needs are being met quickly. And I like the daily rounds where I see my doctor and my nurse.”
