A community hospital used standard work and Kamishibai cards (K-cards) as a proactive approach to address fall prevention. Preliminary assessments showed inconsistent fall prevention practices and fall rates above targets. Standard work with process confirmation, a Lean methodology, was leveraged to address practice variations. This approach reduced and sustained falls to less than 2.28 falls per 1,000 patient days and achieved 157 days between falls.

In spring 2019, University of Missouri Health Care launched an initiative to improve care for patients with chronic heart failure. Within one year, we achieved a 34% reduction in both our mortality ratio and 30-day unplanned readmission rate and moved from being ranked in the bottom decile in mortality and readmissions in a national comparative database to being a top-decile performer.

When talking about large health care organizations, quality improvement is not a one-size-fits-all solution — largely due to different needs and approaches among teams, service lines and departments. Generic educational sessions and booklets often generate only partial interest and motivation on the part of providers.

As we prepared to transition from one electronic medical record (EMR) to another, we knew that a preference card clean-up was critical to avoid significant post-transition data loss and unnecessary editing. Years of duplicate and conflicting information and cards that required cleanup were intimidating prospects.

According to Stanford emergency department (ED) 2021 data, psychiatric patients in the ED who are publicly insured or uninsured are less likely to be accepted for transfer to another facility, despite the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act law requiring facilities to accept patients regardless of ability to pay. This project highlighted the compounded marginalization of an already stigmatized patient population within the health system.

Core measure data is expensive to collect and often difficult to report, analyze and use to drive improvement. To better understand how sepsis bundle compliance affects patient mortality, readmissions and length of stay and to implement meaningful process improvements, we created interactive dashboards that tie together quality and patient-level data.

The unprecedented nature of the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted not only the state of health care, but also our understanding of what is necessary to maintain the mental health and well-being of those providing the most critical services to Colorado communities and beyond. Like so many health systems, UCHealth faced a daunting challenge — not only to provide medical care in novel ways, but also to ensure the well-being of the workforce providing those services.

Hospitals cared for record numbers of patients throughout the pandemic. Trauma, exhaustion and burnout resulted in a need for space and resources to allow workers to decompress safely and confidentially. Indications are that recharge rooms improve employee health and well-being, yet little has been done in this area until UCHealth implemented its Recharge Room in 2021.
