Sepsis is a significant driver of cost in our healthcare system and of a hospital’s financial health. Estimates from CMS and the Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality are that sepsis costs the US healthcare system ~$38 billion annually, and those costs have been rising about 8% a year as our population ages and hospitalized patients are more clinically complex.
For most hospitals, sepsis is in the top five conditions treated so it’s a prevalent issue, and it’s also the most expensive hospital stay. Although evidence-based solutions can demonstrably improve outcomes, most hospitals are continuing with a “do it ourselves” approach that yields few tangible benefits. Sepsis outcomes depend on early identification and action, and early action depends on clinicians being supported by a system that is accurate, reliable, and always on.
This on-demand webinar video highlights the following:
- A substantial ROI can be achieved by focusing on Sepsis program performance by improving CMS bundle compliance and decreasing length of stay - one hospital's story
- Clinical surveillance technology can help hospitals improve clinician satisfaction by reducing alert fatigue and navigate the challenges of staff shortages
- How customers have used Sentri7 Sepsis Monitor to identify sepsis early, enhance quality performance and significantly improve margins on sepsis care.
