TCAB Framework

The four main themes of Transforming Care at the Bedside (TCAB) — Safe and Reliable Care, Vitality and Teamwork, Patient-Centered Care, and Value-Added Care Processes — are guided by the Institute of Medicine's aims for care. These categories serve as a framework for organizing and focusing this work, but they are not mutually exclusive; working in one area can produce positive change in another. IHI believes that only by working in all four categories simultaneously will care teams produce truly transforming results that move care closer to TCAB’s broader targets.
