Guide: Best practices for improving sepsis care and outcomes

Many busy hospitals or hospital systems wrestle with exactly where and how to focus sepsis improvement efforts. The extreme and necessary focus on the COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated the challenge by forcing many sepsis coordinators into reactive mode.

Because sepsis remains one of the world’s most effective killers, hospitals across the country continue their work to improve sepsis outcomes.

In this guide, Dr. Klaz offers best practices focused on the role of surveillance software, adherence to sepsis protocols, improving sepsis bundle delivery, driving engagement and more. Wolters Kluwer has learned about the five most significant challenges this paper addresses through collaboration with clinical teams across the country that are dedicated to improving sepsis performance and patient outcomes through organized programs.

An integrated strategy to address the five most critical challenges can yield substantive and measurable progress. The five challenges are:

  • Monitoring known sepsis patients in-real time
  • Gaining access to early and actionable insights for at-risk patients
  • Identifying the most promising hospital areas for sepsis care improvements
  • Standardizing sepsis protocols and procedures
  • Reliably measuring sepsis performance
