Case Study: Sepsis - Using Evidence-Based Strategies Saves Lives in NY
50,000 New York residents are diagnosed with severe sepsis or septic shock each year, with 30% of these events resulting in death. Many of these deaths could be prevented by early identiﬁcation and treatment. In 2013, New York State (NYS) passed a regulation requiring that all NYS acute care facilities develop and implement evidence-informed protocols to improve recognition and treatment of sepsis. The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) selected IPRO as its business partner to drive the complex processes needed to implement these sepsis regulations.
