Reducing Mortality Through Earlier Sepsis Intervention

October 10, 2019
Featured Outcomes
  • 120 lives saved.
  • 50 percent relative reduction in mortality for patients with emergency department (ED) present on admission (POA) severe sepsis.
  • 14 percent relative reduction in mortality for patients with ED POA septic shock.
  • $5.5 million in savings, the result of reducing average variable cost of care for ED POA and inpatient cohort with sepsis, while also capturing patients for downstream care delivery.

August 13, 2019
Featured Outcomes
  • 36 percent relative reduction in the three-day mortality rate potentially attributable to sepsis.
