Internal Goal for Utilization of Sepsis Narrator Tool

Performance Improvement and Patient Safety are encouraging increased “sepsis narrator” tool in EPIC for all patients when you suspect sepsis. This tool is nurse driven and is important for workflow handoffs in EPIC. Our overall CMS sepsis bundle compliance goal for FY20 is ≥46%.

With the increased utilization of the EPIC sepsis tool there has been data that shows increased compliance percentage, decreased mortality, and improved patient care. Education for the sepsis narrator is available here.

Utilization goals were identified to see at least a 25% increase in the sepsis narrator tool in January 2020
