Early and accurate sepsis alerts ensure all patients receive the right care at the right time. 

Despite an aggressive regulatory push, efforts to reign in sepsis continue to fall short. For every hour sepsis goes untreated, mortality increases by about 8%, making early, accurate detection critical to saving lives and decreasing the cost of care. 

What if your hospital could: 

Identify sepsis patients 6 hours earlier. 

POC Advisor analyzes a broad cross-section of EHR data, including clinical notes, and identifies patients at risk more than 6 hours earlier than EHR sepsis alerts, which are SIRs-based (systemic inflammatory response syndrome). Our sophisticated technology, including natural language processing (NLP) of clinical notes, accounts for more than 4,000 comorbidities resulting in 90% fewer alerts than your EHR.   
 

Achieve adherence to hospital protocols.  

Whether it's through centralized monitoring or alerting at the point of care, POC Advisor reinforces your institution’s care model and sepsis workflow by delivering real-time alerts, notifications and patient-specific guidance to the right person so they can rapidly administer the right care. 

Ensure CMS SEP-1 bundle compliance. 

POC Advisor's Care Monitor enables real-time views of SEP-1 bundle compliance, and intuitive dashboards highlight CMS quality performance metrics for your organization. Teams can drill down to view in-depth hospital performance, including care gaps and trends over time, that help identify areas to improve performance.

POC Advisor - A Sepsis Surveillance Solution with Scientifically Calculated, Published Results

Accurate, real-time identification of patients with sepsis and reliable clinical guidance are crucial to reducing care variation that lies behind poor performance. Frequently, a hospital uses its EHR's sepsis alerts to accelerate diagnosis and treatment, but these are often inaccurate and contribute to pervasive alert fatigue. POC Advisor reduces alert fatigue to improve outcomes and performance, as well as ensures your care teams deliver protocols in line with SEP-1 bundle compliance. 

PEER-REVIEW PROVEN
A JAMIA study found that POC Advisor helped reduce sepsis-related mortality by 53%. POC Advisor identified sepsis early and accurately and provided patient-specific guidance at the point of care.

With sepsis, the likelihood of death increases by 8% for every hour that passes before treatment begins. However, early diagnosis is hampered by difficulties aggregating and analyzing siloed data in the EHR to accurately identify at-risk patients, and rapidly and meaningfully communicating actionable recommendations to clinicians.

How Does POC Advisor Help?

POC Advisor’s sophisticated artificial intelligence-powered analysis of patient data detects sepsis early and accurately. By delivering intuitive alerts and notifications to the right person at the right time and at the point of care via devices or in the EHR, we help you consistently deliver evidence-based care that improves patient outcomes and reduces the cost of care.  

POC Advisor can deliver alerts to a centralized monitor (POC Advisor Care Monitor), mobile device (e.g. Vocera, mobile phone, pagers, etc.) or your EHR. For hospitals set up for centralized monitoring, POC Advisor Care Monitor ensures a view of the entire hospital population, active alerts and those with known sepsis. POC Advisor’s real-time quality improvement workflow shows all steps in CMS bundle compliance.
