Microsoft Introduces Patient Safety Screening Tool to Stop Spread of In-Hospital Infections
Date:2/24/2008

ection, along with the uniform and consistent application of the best evidence-based practices," said Chris Sullivan, industry solutions director, Microsoft U.S. Health and Life Sciences Group. "The Patient Safety Screening Tool for Sepsis can help save lives by monitoring clinical data inputs and dispatching alerts and reminders based on predefined thresholds and pattern matching to facilitate early detection and intervention."

Early detection of sepsis not only saves lives, it can save money for hospitals and healthcare providers. Today severe sepsis accounts for an estimated 40 percent of total ICU expenditures, or $16.7 billion(1) in the United States alone. Adding to the potential liability for hospitals, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid recently issued a ruling in August 2007 that limits the payment hospitals will receive for certain preventable hospital- acquired infections and serious preventable errors. Sepsis is on the short list for addition to the list of conditions covered starting in 2009.

"The average day in the ICU costs $5,000. Early detection of sepsis can reduce a patient's length of stay from 15 to 10 days and save the healthcare system $25,000," said Jason Whiteside, vice president of business development, AOI. "Reducing infection rates also drives consumer demand. That's because people are increasingly searching for healthcare systems with the highest quality of care."

Vanderbilt University Medical Center is taking proactive steps against sepsis. VUMC is currently conducting a pilot project in which Microsoft's PSST for Sepsis is assisting with the early detection of the disease. The solution relies on integration with bedside medical equipment data as well as lab and registration data, so that clinical workflow items can be automated to prevent the rise of sepsis. At VUMC, all this information can be communicated to the PSST through an innovative remote patient-monitoring solution called Vigilance from Acuitec.
