We use the collaborative leadership approach by facilitating mutual enhancement among those working for a common purpose. Our board is comprised of organizations and institutions who are well-respected leaders of healthcare. This foundation is built on the principle of being true healthcare catalyst for the people in Tennessee. We drive resources and opportunities to one place. To collectively impact one community at a time.
THE COLLABORATION CONTINUUM
In common practice the term collaboration serves as a handy label to mark and acknowledge working relationships between individuals, departments, or organizations. However, collaboration as a working relationship actually lies on a continuum of inter-organizational models, each of which has identifiable attributes and requires specific capacities and inter-institutional supports. As we move left-to-right across the continuum, we increase our potential to accomplish together that which cannot be achieved alone. Each level requires an increase in time, trust, and turf-sharing.

Our Current Projects
Academic Detailing (AD) is a one-on-one, clinical based outreach educational technique to help clinicians provide evidence-based care to patients. Trained academic detailers meet with clinicians to assess individual needs, and needs of the practice. These educators then offer tailored, evidence-based clinical recommendations.
ROUTE ONE - RN Education
ROUTE ONE is a collaborative project between ONE Tennessee and QuizTime that offers education to physicians, nurses, advanced practitioners, and other health care professionals by delivering a high-value, convenient mobile learning experience to their fingertips.
Opioid Lite Emergency Department
A patient’s first opioid exposure often occurs during an emergency department (ED) visit. The “opioid-light” order set included alternative therapies for migraine or headache, musculoskeletal pain, joint fracture or dislocation, renal colic, and chronic abdominal pain. In addition, hospitals evaluated individual prescribing patterns to target opportunities for additional education to high-use providers. Hospitals across Tennessee are implementing proven and innovative strategies to reduce opioid prescribing and dependence, as well as new models for care of those fighting addiction.
