Observation Medicine Management

US Acute Care Solutions (USACS) is a national leader in implementing and managing observation care units for hospitals and health systems. Our observation units have a long track record of success, including dramatically reduced length-of-stay, eased staffing demands and increased hospital capacity. 

Improve Key Performance Metrics  
In many USACS facilities where observation medicine services are managed as a seamless extension of emergency care, we have realized dramatic improvements in throughput, length of stay and many other key performance metrics:  

  • 25 patients per bed per month 
  • <20-hour length of stay 
  • <15% conversion rate 
  • <5% readmission rate at 30 days 
  • Patient satisfaction scores >4.5 (1-5 scale) 

CLOSED UNIT DESIGN WITH SPECIALIZED STAFF

US Acute Care Solutions (USACS) is a national leader in the implementation and management of observation care units for hospitals and health systems.  

The USACS observation medicine model includes a closed unit design with dedicated beds and specialized staff. This approach is proven to optimize inpatient and ED flow, increase hospital capacity, improve patient satisfaction and ultimately maintain a higher level of patient care. 

Take a look at how our efficient Closed Unit model differs from the old model of Scattered Bed Design.
