AcuityPlus is the longest tenured transparent classification system in the industry and the ONLY system that allows you to continually improve productivity and identify best practice opportunities by comparing your acuity data with other organizations.
The AcuityPlus methodology for patient acuity-based staffing was innovated in the 1970s and is continually improved and validated. We use existing clinical documentation to determine patient acuity, complexity, and resulting workload demands in real-time. We are committed to the most intensive, most precise and most frequent validation process so that you can confidently determine appropriate staffing and justify those decisions with concrete evidence.
AcuityPlus combines research-based patient classification methodologies and a unique staffing framework. We offer five acuity-based staffing methodologies as well as custom methodologies. Each methodology is founded on the most relevant evidenced-based research, and is tested and validated by existing clients across all care settings. With over 45 years of on-going, real-world product testing, we are confident that our acuity-based staffing solution yields the most valid and reliable results.
