Written by Frank Fortner, President and COO of Iatric Systems

Those of us in the healthcare industry understand how potentially devastating sepsis can be. In fact, it’s the number one cause of death in U.S. hospitals.  But not all of us know that these deaths are preventable 80% of the time — a truth that has been borne out in some amazing clinical successes.

Proper management cut sepsis deaths 70%

I wrote about one such case in a blog post last year. It talked about the exceptional work being done by Sallie Arnett, Vice President of Information Systems and CIO at Licking Memorial Health Systems in Ohio. Sallie and her team helped Licking reduce their sepsis mortality rate 70% through proper sepsis management — and they saved 62 lives in one year. 

What a powerful story!  That’s why I’m thrilled she’s willing to share their success with you in an exciting, informative live webinar scheduled for Thursday, May 17th at 2:00 pm ET.

When Time Matters: Leveraging Actionable Data to Combat Sepsis 

Tune in to Sallie’s webinar and you’ll learn how to:

  • Understand all the sepsis risk factors
  • See why rapid treatment is the difference between life and death
  • Increase physician and staff awareness within a multi-disciplinary team
  • Leverage technology to react to sepsis in real time — and save lives

I had the honor of seeing Sallie present Licking’s story at the Fall 2017 CHIME conference, and I can tell you she’s a remarkable person at the forefront of some truly life-giving work. Anyone involved in sepsis management or healthcare IT in general will benefit greatly from hearing her speak.

I hope you’ll register now.
