Abstract

Health care systems are implementing a myriad of strategies to improve patient outcomes and reduce both adverse events and unplanned readmissions. These approaches include interventions related to people, processes, and technology. This article describes the development of a technology-based model in the form of an actionable risk profile, which was used by one inpatient surgical unit (people) during a daily care team briefing (process). The risk profile was evaluated for its perceived value to the care team as a method of organizing care and anticipating patients' needs. Preliminary findings of the proof of concept are presented along with recommendations for practice and research.
