  • Rapid response team patient monitoring

    Continuous Cloud-Based Early Warning Score Surveillance to Improve the Safety of Acutely Ill Hospitalized Patients P1

    Hospitals today do not have streamlined processes to identify at-risk patients sooner for earlier intervention. As a result, patient safety is an issue with unexpected hospital admissions to critical care units occurring more frequently, leading to poorer patient outcomes. Some....

  • Automated early warning decision support to detect acute decompensation in the emergency department improves hospital mortality. P2

    Detecting early signs of clinical decompensation, such as deviations in vital signs, is critical to reducing mortality rates among hospital patients. Research indicates that early warning alert scores based on clinical and physiological data predict risk of decompensation in emergency....

  • 50 percent reduction in ICU LOS

    Sooner is better: use of a real-time automated bedside dashboard improves sepsis careP3

    Sepsis is the leading contributor of in-hospital morbidity and mortality. An estimated 750,000 patients are treated annually in the US for severe sepsis with mortality rates trending higher than 25%. Optimal outcomes for sepsis management utilize protocols for early detection....

  • 46 percent decrease in patients ventilated

    Improving compliance with low tidal volume/lung protective ventilation with utilization of on-time, bedside surveillance and early warning decision support systemA2

    For mechanically ventilated (MV) patients with and without acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), outcomes such as mortality, subsequent lung injury, length of stay, infections, and duration of MV are improved with timely utilization of low tidal volume (LTV)/lung protective ventilation.....

  • Acute kidney injury reduction in incidence

    Acute Kidney Injury Reduction after Implementation of an ICU Visual Clinical Decision Support ToolA3

    Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a secondary insult in critically illness associated with an increase in morbidity and mortality. Analyzing and determining the extent of AKI is challenging. Using a visual clinical decision support tool with validated staging and recognition....

  • Reduced mortality with early detection

    Utilization of an Innovative Decision Support Software System to Enhance Detection of Decompensating Ward Patients and Reduce Mortality for Patients Requiring Transfer to Critical Care UnitsA4

    Patients requiring transfer from the medical wards to an intensive care unit (ICU) have increased morbidity and mortality compared to patients who are admitted to the ICU directly from the emergency department (ED). More specifically, patients requiring transfer from the....

  • Setting NEWS score thresholds

    Electronically Generated Modified NEWS on the Hospital Floor and ED

    The National Early Warning System Score (NEWS) is a reliable, validated tool to detect significant patient deterioration on the general floor and in emergency departments (ED). Studies of NEWS have largely been conducted using pen and paper, or simple software....

  • 33 percent decrease in hospital mortality after implementing a visual decision support system

    Improving Survival in Critically Ill Patients After Implementing A Visual Decision Support System

    Implementing electronic health records (EHRs) has not improved clinical outcomes. Actionable clinical data is not readily available or visible in conventional surveillance systems. We hypothesized that implementing an on time bedside clinical visualization system would decrease hospital mortality.

  • Decreased rate of sepsis and subsequent mortality

    Clinical Outcomes in Septic Patients after Implementing a Visual Clinical Decision Support System

    Sepsis is a leading cause of death in hospitalized patients. Frequent sepsis screening coupled with early diagnosis and intervention is key to improving outcomes. Electronic health records (EHRs) store vast amounts of data, but accessing and visualizing clinically relevant data....
