Simple Steps To
Make Great Change StoryCare® takes less than an hour of your time as a team leader each month and requires only two 15-minute huddles with your team. But the engagement and learning happens through the entire 30 days and lasts long after your team’s new behaviours are embraced and embedded as the ‘new norms’ in your unit. StoryCare® maximizes ownership among all your staff which is the key to achieving and sustaining an enterprise-wide culture of excellence.

Eight Easy Steps
How To Use
Step 7 :
is an easy to use, web-based system for healthcare organizations and teams to address important issues of patient safety, quality, patient satisfaction, and staff engagement. StoryCare’s 30-day rapid improvement cycle is a focused team simulation that occurs on the job targeting a specific performance outcome. Teams are able to learn, practice, and ‘hard-wire’ new behaviors that are sustainable over time. With StoryCare®, team members collectively decide which behaviors and best practices to adopt based on what works in their setting.
Goal Line Huddle | Day Thirty Assemble your team for a final 15-minute huddle or include during a regular team meeting. Review the new behaviors observed during rounding and have the team determine the behaviors that they believe best solve the issue being addressed. Confirm these new behaviors and commit to making them part of the unit’s practice. Share with the team the decision to move on to a new topic or remaining with this issue and addressing it with a new story from another perspective, in which case you would return to Step 3 and select a new story on this issue for a new four-week cycle.
Here’s how it works. Step 1 :
Identify Your Team’s Issue Whatever challenge(s) your team is facing, StoryCare’s robust solutions libraries are ready to tackle it. Search from three libraries with hundreds of stories designed to align with almost any improvement goal, each with a complete set of support materials and coaching guides: StoryCare Essentials : contains our most comprehensive library with stories that focus on the following outcomes: Patient Safety, Patient Satisfaction, Quality of Care, Staff Satisfaction and Professional Development, and Teamwork and Communication. TeamSTEPPS® Tools : contains stories that focus on the implementation of evidence-based tools aimed at improving team performance and patient safety. Partnership for Patients : contains stories that align with the improvement goals to reduce preventable harm.
Select the story that works best for your challenge, your type of unit or work environment, and your team. Or let one of our StoryCare® Coaches help you develop a solution set to specifically address your situation.
Step 8 :
Report Your Progress Select the End-of-Cycle Progress Report feature on the StoryCare® website. Enter email recipients that you want your Progress Report to be sent. Fill in the report fields using your facilitator notes you have collected during the past StoryCare® cycle. The report fields encourage entering free text from your success stories. Your team’s StoryCare® experience is now stored in your organizational reporting database for tracking system use and effectiveness. Remember, this reporting feature is a simple way to keep your leadership updated.
