CLINICIAN PERCEPTION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF AN AUTOMATED EARLY WARNING SYSTEM TO PREDICT SEPSIS

Background: Sepsis is a leading cause of mortality among hospitalized patients. Early detection and intervention reduces sepsis-related mortality. We implemented a novel early warning system (EWS 2.0) based on a machine-learning algorithm to prospectively identify [...]

IMPLEMENTATION AND IMPACT OF AN AUTOMATED EARLY WARNING SYSTEM TO PREDICT SEPSIS

Background: Sepsis is a leading cause of death among hospitalized patients. Early detection of sepsis has the potential to reduce mortality by facilitating timely evidence-based interventions. Past studies have used electronic health records (EHR) to [...]

IMPLEMENTATION OF AN EARLY WARNING SYSTEM IMPROVES PATIENT SAFETY, BUT IS IT WORTH THE COSTS?

Background: Numerous early warning systems (EWS) exist as potential tools to improve patient safety. Our system recognized higher than peer rates of rapid response (RRT) utilization as well as higher than desired out-of-ICU code blue [...]
