A Sepsis Solution: Reducing Mortality by 50% Using Advanced Decision Support

Wednesday, January 20, 2016 | 1:00PM - 2:00PM CST 

Sepsis is the most common cause of death in hospital critical care units, each year claiming the lives of 258,000 patients nationwide. At $20 billion annually, it is also the most expensive condition treated in U.S. hospitals. Strong evidence correlates early diagnosis and goal-directed therapy to significant reductions in sepsis-related mortality. However, early identification and treatment remains elusive, emphasizing the need for intelligent, prompt and patient-specific clinical decision support (CDS) at the point of care.

In this webinar, learn how Huntsville Hospital, a 941-bed facility in Alabama, combined change management protocols and point-of-care alerting to reduce sepsis mortality by 53% and sepsis-related 30-day readmissions by 30%, including:

  • How real-time surveillance applied to EHR data can generate patient-centric, intuitive and highly accurate evidence-based decision support, resulting in improved outcomes and improvement in the practice of medicine;
  • How to reduce alert fatigue and improve outcomes through highly sensitive and specific alerts delivered at the point of care directly into the clinical workflow;
  • The role of clinical change management in achieving reduced sepsis rates.
