 IMCP 2012 Board Goal

 

Overview and Opportunity:

Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock are leading causes of mortality in hospitalized patients.  In-hospital mortality due to severe sepsis ranges from 25% to 60%.  Intermountain has successfully decreased mortality to around 9% for patients with severe sepsis or septic shock that are admitted directly to the ICU from the emergency department (ED). The Intensive Medicine Clinical Program (IMCP) has not formally developed goals or improvement programs focusing on patients who are admitted to a general hospital unit and then develop sepsis during hospitalization. Mortality for patients who develop severe sepsis on acute care inpatient settings and transfer to ICU can be as high as 40%.  The IMCP believes the greatest impact on hospital mortality for this population can be made by providing  education for early identification of sepsis and implementation of the sepsis bundle on acute care floors while continuing to improve the compliance of the sepsis bundle for patients admitted from the ED to the ICU. IMCP will continue working on 2014 Sepsis Bundle Goal in 2015.

Goal Statement:

The following measure will be accomplished:

1.       To increase Sepsis Bundle Compliance to greater than 65%

2.       To decrease Mortality to below 10%

Baseline:  52.2% Bundle Compliance; 10.1% Mortality

Target:  >=65% Bundle Compliance; <=10% Mortality

Baseline Period: 6/1/2014 to 9/30/2014

Measurement Period: 1/1/2015 to 12/31/2015
