Despite leading health systems paying so much attention to sepsis programs, sepsis related mortality continues to be as high as 258,000 annually.It has been estimated that there would be 92,000 fewer deaths and reductions in hospital expenditures of over $1.5 billion annually,if hospitals are able to deliver coordinated care for sepsis.
Most hospitals and care providers run sepsis programs that have been in place for years with minor improvements. Change to such sepsis programs needs to be planned, reviewed, implemented and approved by multiple stakeholders and cost thousands of dollars. Hence it is critical that right at the onset, hospitals assess their program needs, identify process gaps and plan program improvements to be able to deliver better outcomes.
Over the last few years, federal healthcare mandates such as ICD-10 implementation, HIPAA and PPACA have boosted the adoption of electronic health records (EHRs), Healthcare Information Exchange (HIE) and advanced analytics to leverage available data in order to find valuable insights from it.
To combat the spiraling clinical and financial implications of sepsis, healthcare systems are increasingly relying on big data and analytics solutions to reengineer their processes and plan program improvements to improve outcomes. Being data driven does not only mean that hospitals improve their outcomes and bottom lines, analytics also helps them reduce waste, optimize resources, improve patient satisfaction and maintain high ratings.
Sepsis Analytics software if used in the right way and at the right point can help a health system gain intuitive insights, discover patterns, identify gaps, and normalize data from disparate sources, all necessary to achieve clinical and operational excellence within a few weeks.
According to a 2014 report by CDW, of all health systems that have adopted analytics, 82% have reported improvement in patient care while 63% have reported reduced readmissions rates and over 54% agree to have improved their financial reporting capabilities.
AcesoCloud’s Sepsis Management software is a cloud-based analytics product that allows healthcare systems to analyze and optimize the effectiveness of sepsis clinical programs, in terms of financial outcomes, operational efficiency, and also benchmark them against industry standards. Using the SepsisAnalytics software, health systems can gain in-depth insights on existing process gaps and plan process improvements to improve their sepsis care programs.
Benefits of Sepsis Analytics include:
• Being cloud based SepsisAnalytics does not need licensing or installation. It is ready for implementation and use within a few hours.
• Complete visibility across clinical, operational and financial aspects of the sepsis program.
• Interactive, web-based dashboards showing analytics on real-time data.
• Infographic view of the degree of dependence across multiple metrics.
• Infographics on multiple patient health data to aid timely clinical decision making.
• Analyze profitability by DRGs, gender, and age.
• Identify patterns of cost and profitability in relation to DRGs, gender, and age
• Save millions of dollars by accurately forecasting and real-time access to data.
The SepsisAnalytics software produces interactive, observable and intuitive infographics, dashboards and reports that help to better conceptualize the relationship between variables, the degree of dependence, and find real meaning in the numbers. The software offers multiple clinical, operational and financial dashboards in easily downloadable formats.
With SepsisAnalytics health systems can gain control over sepsis program costs by having a 360 degree visibility of costs and real-time financial checks and updates.
SepsisAnalytics combines data visualization with powerful analytics to help care providers gain a better perspective of clinical processes, optimize resource utilization, identify gaps and plan treatment protocols and care coordination, in order to improve the overall effectiveness of sepsis programs.
