Sponsored Session: Improving Sepsis Performance with People, Processes, and Technology

Session Description: 

Sponsored by Wolters Kluwer

Hospitals continue striving to demonstrate measurable improvements in sepsis care to better patient outcomes and to avoid the excessive length of stay and associated costs that are too common in sepsis cases. In this sponsored session, learners will explore key considerations for improving sepsis performance and investments, including how changes in people, processes, and technology can drive improved sepsis outcomes. The presenter will also discuss how one Wolters Kluwer POC Advisor customer was able to take this approach to improve SEP-1 bundle compliance and decrease excessive costs by reducing care variation.

This session was originally recorded in September 2022 as part of Sepsis Alliance Summit.

Target Audience

Nurses, advanced practice providers, physicians, emergency responders, pharmacists, medical technologists, respiratory therapists, physical/occupational therapists, infection prevention specialists, data/quality specialists, and more.
