Steven Simpson, MD, and Amanda Gartner, RN, The University of Kansas Hospital, and Bryan Eckert, Healthcare Group, CSC. The University of Kansas Hospital (KUMED) has made great strides in improving outcomes for sepsis patients using an “early warning system” supported by seasoned critical care nurses acting as a special team of clinical surveillance and triage nurses. KUMED’s innovative approach uses real-time information in the EMR across the enterprise for early identification of patients at risk for serious conditions like sepsis, followed by aggressive clinical intervention. Learn more about how KUMED is using this innovative approach to realize clinical and financial benefits, and improve patient outcomes.
