Research shows that clinical staff members make errors in 30 percent of in-hospital cardiac arrest cases. This 2019 white paper reviews the factors that contribute to suboptimal care and cites how clinical decision apps, used in real time at the point of care, can give patients the best chance to survive.
From 2017 to 2018, Sheridan County Hospital significantly improved sepsis care by using the Redivus digital sepsis management tool to increase provider efficiency and improve diagnostic accuracy. SCH noticed immediate benefits in quality of care, patient outcomes and revenue.
In 2016, the Redivus Health Code Blue prototype app was tested via simulated cardiac arrest events with multidisciplinary teams of health care professionals. The Redivus app was associated with a statistically significant improvement in adherence to AHA guidelines for treating cardiac arrest.
In 2018, the Redivus Health clinical decision support platform was used by Saint Luke's Health System to identify transfer patients with sepsis. Redivus helped the health system diagnose 150% more sepsis patients, decrease mortality by 30%, and increase hospital reimbursement by $70,000 in one month.
This quality improvement study evaluated the effectiveness of identifying sepsis using the Redivus Health Sepsis software vs. traditional SIRS criteria. Comparing patient charts from 2015 and 2016, the use of Redivus was associated with a significantly higher percentage of sepsis diagnoses at the time of admission.
