Reduce the Costs of Treating Sepsis

Reduce the Costs of Treating Sepsis

According to the CDC, sepsis accounts for over 250,000 deaths in the U.S. each year and the Sepsis Alliance estimates that cost to be nearly $24 billion annually, making it the most dangerous and expensive condition to treat in the entire healthcare system.

Prolonged patient stays, increased readmission rates and strained resources in health facilities are just a few added consequences of the sepsis crisis.

One of the critical tools in reversing this trend is early detection and a rapid mobilization of the sepsis team. A clinical communication and collaboration (CC&C) solution can significantly improve response times, reducing sepsis-related healthcare costs and improving patient outcomes.

In tomorrow’s TigerConnect webinar, we’ll show how a CC&C solution can:

  • Improve care team communication between the care team and pharmacy
  • Enhance coordinated care team delivery through EHR access and role-based messaging
  • Reduce length of stay through early detection of sepsis and prevention escalation

To get a headstart, check out the infographic below to see step-by-step how care teams can use TigerConnect to respond to sepsis cases.
