ACUTE CARE, INC. Supports: Joint Commission’s Reducing Sepsis Mortality Targeted Solutions Tool

Following a comprehensive quality improvement project with a cohort of 5 hospitals across the country and a subsequent pilot that reduced sepsis mortality anywhere from nearly 25% for the cohort and from nearly 20% to over 50% for the pilot, the Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare developed the Reducing Sepsis Mortality Targeted Solutions Tool (TST®). The methods and solutions embedded in the sepsis TST are based on the two projects coupled with the current measurement landscape and the experience of targeted solutions that worked for the project participants.

The Reducing Sepsis Mortality Targeted Solutions Tool (TST) is a web-based application designed to help health care organizations understand the barriers to sepsis recognition and sepsis protocol compliance so they can implement evidence-based solutions to reduce sepsis mortality.
