The Use of Predictive Analytics to Improve Quality of Care

This presentation will briefly review clinical informatics with a focus on tools designed to help guide clinical decision making to improve patient outcomes. A predictive analytics tool developed to identify patients likely to be or become septic will be presented as a case example.

Sepsis is a major healthcare problem and is defined as life-threatening organ dysfunction caused by a dysregulated host response to infection[1]. An estimated 270,000 Americans die each year of sepsis and 1 and 3 patients who die in a hospital have sepsis[2]. Improving outcomes requires early identification and early intervention. At the end of this presentation attendees should be able to:

    1. Identify individuals at risk of developing sepsis
    2. Describe the signs and symptoms of sepsis
    3. Describe current approaches to the diagnosis and management of sepsis
    4. Explain how clinical decision support tools may be integrated into the electronic health record to help guide clinical decision making
