Dear California RT Manager,
The AARC is currently revising the Uniform Reporting Manual for 2020 but in order to do so, they need YOUR help! By providing information about the procedures conducted in your hospital, you will help the AARC develop statistically valid time standards that will form the foundation of a productivity system. These nationally validated time standards are the only valid metric to use to determine RT staff productivity and ultimately, the number of clinical FTEs.
Now more than ever we need to establish the AARC URM as the 'national standard' for productivity. Once they have a sufficient number of surveys completed, it will be their primary focus to communicate this 'national standard' not just to you as an RT leader, but also to healthcare executives and consultants. Many, if not most, of these stakeholders are not aware of the URM or dismiss it since it because not enough data was obtained.
Please take the time to complete the survey. It doesn’t even have to be completed by you - feel free to have one of your team leaders complete it if they have the knowledge to do so. The important part is that someone completes it and does so as soon as possible! The survey period has been extended to accommodate the competing demands for your time. By clicking on the below link, you will find more detail about the survey and the timeline target to complete the survey.

I understand that everyone has their hands full managing the current pandemic, however the URM can be used as a tool to justify staff during times like this. The AARC has streamlined the survey process through the on-line tool to minimize the time it will take. Thank you for contributing to the science of respiratory care management and thank you for your continued commitment to the patients, families, and communities we serve!
