A New Pathway to Reduce Sepsis Morbidity
Every hour that a sepsis diagnosis is missed, mortality increases 8%. In recent years, the scale of the problem has driven new, international efforts to improve sepsis care. No specialty “owns” sepsis. It’s all hands on deck. There are newly devised protocols, sepsis teams, guidelines, and alliances to combat sepsis. Providers, payers, researchers, risk underwriters, accreditors, and regulators are all on notice to reduce sepsis morbidity and mortality.
There are isolated, local successes. Intermountain Healthcare in Salt Lake City reduced sepsis mortality by 70% through innovation and organizational grit…and knowledge.
First-of-its-kind national hospitalist sepsis study
Our first-of-its-kind national hospitalist sepsis study was designed as a clinical intervention using the Amplifire training tool, which delivers a groundbreaking learning experience and advanced analytics. The goal was to acquire data on what doctors and nurses know about sepsis. Can they recognize sepsis at an early stage? Do they know the evidence supporting treatment guidelines? Are they confident about how to respond?
