Improving Sepsis Outcomes at Michigan Medicine - Adult

Overview

Did you know?

  • Sepsis is the third most frequent coded diagnosis at Michigan Medicine.
  • Sepsis should be treated with the same sense of urgency as other medical emergencies like strokes and heart attacks.
  • As an institution, we need to be more PROACTIVE instead of REACTIVE to sepsis so we can prevent sepsis from causing irreversible organ dysfunction and/or death!

The sepsis predictive model can assist clinicians in detecting patients likely to diagnosed with sepsis, enabling them to intervene before the condition has a chance to progress. The model monitors data in the background and will prompt nursing to complete screening questions. The screening questions are also completed once per shift as part of nursing required documentation. These screenings provide the system with more information, including crucial subjective information, which is used to determine if the First Contact Provider is automatically paged.
