Bridging Patient Care Silos: Co-Locating Cross-Function Teams

Boston Medical Center’s Dedicated Observation Unit uses co-located, cross-functional teams. They are equipped to treat a wider variety of more severely sick patients than the typical observation unit, and have a collocated cross-functional team structure. They also can take more patients, freeing up in-patient beds for others. Drs. Chris Manasseh and Anita Tucker discuss the impact of this approach on patient outcomes and length of stay.
