The Toll of Sepsis on Patients & Hospitals
The Impact of POC Advisor on Sepsis Care
Automatically analyzes patient data in real time, tailored to a hospital’s unique patient population
POC Advisor conducts real-time analysis of patient data using hundreds of rules based on patient-specific variations and medical evidence, including:
Medication-specific rules to account for lab abnormalities due to prescriptions.
Disease-specific rules to account for lab abnormalities due to liver disease, chronic renal disease, heart failure, & hundreds more.
IHI Surviving Sepsis guidelines to maximize alert accuracy.
Patient-specific treatment advice is delivered at the point of care with maximum sensitivity & specificity
POC Advisor sends alerts directly to the point of care via mobile devices and clinical portals. Alerts fall into three categories:
Surveillance diagnosis—Real-time warnings identify possible cases of SIRS, sepsis, severe sepsis, severe sepsis with hypotension, & septic shock.
Advice—Treatment advice is tailored to specific co-morbid conditions for each patient based on the latest medical evidence & IHI guidelines.
Reminders—To close the loop on patient treatment, every alert requires acknowledgement of care or escalation per site protocols.
