Webinar: Ensuring Early, Accurate & Prescriptive Care to Improve Sepsis Outcomes

In this webinar, we discuss how hospitals can empower sepsis coordinators to improve outcomes by minimizing alert fatigue and improving clinical efficiency with POC Advisor.

POC Advisor: Improving Sepsis Outcomes

Early identification of sepsis and adherence to treatment bundles may reduce mortality by approximately one third, making surveillance a crucial component of sepsis initiatives. Unfortunately, traditional electronic surveillance to detect sepsis tends not to work; meta-analysis of traditional sepsis alerting studies shows no improvement in mortality, primarily due to poor specificity, resulting in alert fatigue.

With sepsis as a leading cause of death in hospitals, there is a significant price tag to cover the cost of care, totaling 13% of U.S. hospital costs. The average case may cost as much as $70,000 per patient depending on the severity, resulting in millions at risk for a hospital annually.

Wolters Kluwer’s Medical Director of Surveillance, Steve Claypool, M.D. recently presented in a Sepsis Coordinator Network (SCN) Innovation Webinar, and covered how hospitals can:

  • Reduce variability in care by improving your clinical team’s adoption of evidence-based guidance
  • Empower sepsis coordinators to improve outcomes by minimizing alert fatigue and improving clinical efficiency
  • Improve performance in mortality and sepsis core measures and streamline reporting
