Innovative Model to Combine Emergency, Hospitalist, and Critical Care Medicine Continues to Show Rapid Growth
Austin, TX - US Acute Care Solutions (USACS) and Cedar Park Regional Medical Center are pleased to announce a new partnership to provide Integrated Acute Care (IAC) services. USACS' unique model of Integrated Acute Care brings emergency, hospitalist, and critical care medicine providers together as one team with one purpose: seamless, quality patient care across the entire acute care episode. The new partnership will begin January, 2018.
USACS had already been providing emergency medicine management and critical care services to Cedar Park. The new partnership extends the strong relationship to cover hospitalist services.
"Our model of combining hospitalist and emergency medicine into one team, with unified leadership and accountability, continues to grow rapidly," said Dr. George Mitri, USACS Chief Medical Officer for Integrated Acute Care. "We look forward to working with Cedar Park as a unified team to improve patient care across the acute care continuum."
The USACS model of Integrated Acute Care builds on USACS' commitment to physician ownership by creating a single, accountable team of clinicians responsible for continual improvement of patient care throughout the patient's stay, from entrance into the Emergency Department until discharge, and even beyond. The model has led to dramatic improvements in key quality metrics, particularly those that are signifiers of a hospital's preparedness for the future of healthcare.
“We chose USACS because we wanted a single, accountable leadership team across the entire care continuum,” said Cedar Park Regional Medical Center CEO Brad Holland. “We look forward to extending our partnership with them to include hospitalist services as well as emergency and critical care.”
