Sepsis continues to be a difficult diagnosis to identify and manage in a timely manner. Despite availability of evidence-based guidelines, sepsis claims a disproportionately high share of in-hospital deaths, ranging from 19% to 34%. It also takes its toll on hospital resource consumption. Prolonged stays and intensive care are common, and associated costs are high—a typical sepsis case costs an ICU six times more than a non-sepsis case.
After mining the Crimson cohort for best practices and clinical trends, we have identified nine areas where hospitals can change care processes to make the most impact on outcomes. Our infographic outlines process improvement steps and corresponding data points for performance monitoring—and how Crimson can help.
