Sepsis is a life-threatening disease and cause of significant in-hospital morbidity and mortality. As an Australian-first in Western Sydney, the eMR Enhance team developed the Emergency Department (ED) sepsis alert system; a valuable tool for the early identification of patients suitable for the sepsis pathway that issued 2,154 alerts for 2,075 patients in a three month analysis. Learn how the:
Unique patient-centred EMR roll-out model improved patient tracking, workflow documentation, medication safety and patient discharge
ED sepsis alert systems serves as a safety net tool and compliments ED clinician judgment in the diagnosis and early treatment of septic patients
ED staff required training of triage nurses and doctors to change behaviour and act on the alert system, with further refinement of the algorithm to improve its predictive value post-implementation
