Observation Medicine Management


Observation Medicine Management at USACSUS Acute Care Solutions (USACS) is a national leader in the implementation and management of observation care units for hospitals and health systems. Our observation units have a long track record of success, including dramatic reductions in length-of-stay, easing staffing demands and enabling increased hospital capacity.

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.
