Virtually Integrated CareSM

What is CommonSpirit Health’s Virtually Integrated Care Model and why is it important to our patients?

Virtually Integrated CareSM (VICSM) provides assistance to the bedside team and patient/family through the use of virtual technology. The virtually integrated careSM nurse is there to unburden the workload of the frontline care team by assisting with essential nursing functions, providing the bedside team more time to focus on patient/family care needs. Virtually Integrated CareSM  enhances the professional practice of nursing by utilizing a strong professional shared governance structure that ensures that the frontline staff feedback is embedded within the care model. 

Patients and their families also benefit from this care model as the virtually integrated careSM nurse includes them in every aspect of care to include essential education and purposeful rounds. Patient feedback regarding the care model:
