What if your hospital knew with 98% accuracy whether a patient arrived with or would acquire sepsis within your facility? What if you could reduce the cost of treating the most expensive condition at your facility? The Intermedix Condition Awareness solution leverages data science to suspect this life-threatening disease early. While clinical indicators have been the accepted method of detecting sepsis, collecting clinical information may consume critical treatment time. Our approach combines data gathered at registration with external data – delivering a notification for patients who are likely to have or acquire sepsis.
Clinical data is necessary to diagnosis sepsis. Patient vital signs, laboratory results, and even imaging findings help to finalize a sepsis diagnosis. However, clinical measures take valuable treatment time to gather. The Intermedix Condition Awareness for Sepsis spotlights patients
The Condition Awareness for Sepsis combines population health data with the hospital's ADT feed to assess each patient's risk. The ED clinical staff is then notified via
The cost of the sepsis epidemic is $24 billion annually and growing—with each case costing health systems between $32,000 and $88,000. Additionally, sepsis patients stay in the hospital 75 percent longer than other patients – impacting the ability for hospitals to move patients out of the emergency department and into hospital beds. By deploying Condition Awareness for Sepsis, hospitals can reduce costs associated with more intense sepsis therapies and treatments. Our clients have been able to reduce costs to as low as $3,000 per case.
Sepsis survival rates depend primarily on early detection and treatment–every hour of treatment delay increases mortality by 7.6 percent. By assessing the patient risk at the point of admission, the Intermedix Condition Awareness for Sepsis improves patient outcomes by providing clinicians with more treatment time–ultimately leading to significantly decreased sepsis-related mortality.
