Parrish Medical Center Sees 30 Percent Improvement in Mortality Using Real-Time Clinical Surveillance Solution from Thomson Reuters
Date:3/9/2010

t Team (CAT), utilized CareFocus as part of its Six Sigma quality improvement project to reduce hospital mortality and code blue conditions outside the ICU.  

"The fewer people you have coding on the floors the better you can take care of them in the ICU," said Frank Corcoran, RN, BSN, director of ICU / RT / Hemodialysis / Infection Control at Parrish Medical Center. "Our current reduction in mortality, trended out over a one-year period, will equate to about sixty-three extra lives saved."  

The CAT used the real-time surveillance capability of CareFocus to develop clinical profiles that monitor select patient data such as heart rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, and other critical values.  Patients who meet a profile's criteria — indicating they are at risk — are included on a list accessible to ICU staff, charge nurses, clinical coordinators, administrative supervisors and nurse managers, directors and vice presidents.  

Four times each day — twice during the day and twice over night — a team of CAT personnel and nurses meet to review the status of patients on the list. The team then determines if the patients can be stabilized or if they should be sent to the ICU for further treatment.
