An inpatient unit in an acute care hospital was designated as an Innovation Unit. This unit was challenged with the creation of culture change in regards to process improvement. The team learned to use Improvement Science to facilitate rapid and innovative process improvements. These changes have enhanced the quality of healthcare provided while decreasing cost. The poster highlights some of the Improvement Science processes, forms, and roles of the team as well as some of the projects and successes.
