NSA 01/11/18 EMERG SEPSIS MORTALITY REDUCTION INITIATIVE

Vallejo, CA US
January 11, 2018

Speaker: Thomas Russell, MD  KP Sacramento  Sepsis Champion

In 2008, Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC), which provides care to 3.3 million members in 21 hospitals, implemented an initiative to improve sepsis care, a critical step to reduce hospital mortality. The goals of the program were threefold: improve identification of sepsis patients, appropriately stratify risk, and reliably provide treatment, focusing on spread and sustainability across all medical centers.

The KPNC program is unique in its rapid rate of improvement in sepsis measures, adoption of a single standard of care across an entire 21-hospital system, sustainability well beyond the rapid adoption period, and the quantification of mortality risk beyond the shock population to the intermediate sepsis population.
