Toolkit for Building Implementation-Ready Care Standards

    This toolkit is a joint publication of the Nursing Executive Center and the Physician Executive Council, two divisions of the Advisory Board.

    addressing the needs of rising-risk patients

    Many health care leaders recognize that reducing unwarranted care variation is critical to improving quality and unlocking cost savings. Yet they are finding it difficult to translate new care standards into daily practice.

    One reason why care standards are not making it from paper into practice is that few organizations provide clear guidance about what a care standard should include. As a result, care standards vary widely depending on the preferences and experience of the teams that create them. When every care standard looks different, frontline clinicians wind up feeling overwhelmed.

    This toolkit provides design teams with a recommended template for developing consistent and comprehensive care standards that are actionable at the front line.
