Transitions in Care: Preventing Sepsis-related Readmissions

Transitions in Care: Preventing Sepsis-related Readmissions flyer

Anyone can develop sepsis, a life-threatening, complex and challenging condition to manage. There are significant human and financial costs associated with it. Every year more than 1.7 million adults in the U.S. develop sepsis, leading to over 270,000 deaths and roughly 19% of sepsis survivors are readmitted to the hospital within 30 days, leading to a $3.1 billion annual cost. Well-defined systems and processes across the continuum are crucial to delivering the right care at the right time to the right patient.   This event will feature proactive transitions in care and hand-off strategies to the next level of care provider to improve patient outcomes and prevent sepsis-related readmissions. The patient voice will be highlighted via a sepsis survivor story and key discharge planning, patient and family engagement, health equity, infection prevention and patient education tactics will also be shared.
