Applying Championship Athletic Principles to Improve Patient Safety: Gatorounds and the Rothman Index


When UF Health needed a game plan to better align all members of its healthcare team, they opted to take a page from the University of Florida Gators’ athletics championship playbook. The Gainesville, Fla. health system enlisted the help of Gator coaches to incorporate athletic principles into care delivery. The result is Gatorounds, UF Health’s multidisciplinary approach to medical rounds that focuses on enhanced clinician communication to more efficiently and safely provide patient care.

But truly understanding a full picture of patient condition requires care team members to speak the same language. UF Health realized this need and decided to add PeraHealth’s Rothman Index to the game plan. Validated by 20 peer-reviewed publications, the Rothman Index leverages existing data from a hospital’s EHR to provide a universal score for predicting patient mortality and readmission risk.

View this webinar and learn how UF Health leverages Gatorounds and the Rothman Index to create a universal language for clinicians and keep score of patient condition to provide more efficient, effective care.
