Sheridan County Hospital Selects Redivus HealthFebruary 19, 2018
Redivus Health welcomes Sheridan County Hospital in Hoxie, Kansas, as among the first Kansas hospitals to implement the Redivus Health mobile platform to improve patient care. Sheridan County Hospital staff is using the Redivus diagnostic and clinical decision support app to manage cases of cardiac arrest, stroke and sepsis.
“Already the Redivus app has helped our team spot and treat three cases of severe sepsis,” says Hannah Schoendaler, Sheridan County Hospital Chief Nursing Officer. “The app is giving us the confidence to make the diagnosis of sepsis and to treat our patients quickly, at our hospital, so they can recover and go home.”
As a mobile clinical decision support app, Redivus guides healthcare providers through the diagnosis and treatment of time-critical medical events. Whether it’s immediately responding to a cardiac arrest or stroke, or recognizing the signs of sepsis, Redivus Health supports practitioners with instant guidance and the confidence to make difficult clinical decisions.
“We’re finding that up to 50 percent of the time sepsis is under-recognized,” says Jeff Dunn, D.O., Redivus Health founder and CEO.
“We knew our platform could be useful in critical access hospitals, and places like Sheridan County prove it is making a difference for patients in rural areas,” Dunn continues. “We’re excited to have Sheridan County Hospital on board, leading the way by using innovative mobile technology to benefit their community.”
Improving Patient Care
Hospitals, EMS providers and long-term care facilities use Redivus Health to reduce medical error and improve patient care. The tool automatically documents every action taken during treatment. The Redivus subscription service provides evidence-based guidance for treating cardiac arrest, stroke, heart attack and sepsis.
“For a smaller facility, you may not see critical cases routinely, so that makes it more challenging,” says Amanda Volchko, Sheridan County Hospital Physician Assistant. “You have the training and you have the medical knowledge, but it might be the first Code Blue you’ve seen in 6 months, so it’s nice to have a tool like the Redivus app to help keep you focused.”
