Spacelabs appreciates the opportunity to work with the Kentucky Hospital Association. We are committed to helping member hospitals and health systems deliver the best care to the communities they serve.
Reframing the approach to sepsis
One way to address the challenges associated with diagnosing sepsis is to reframe the approach to focus on overall patient deterioration. It is well established that sepsis is associated with progressive physiological deterioration as a patient advances along the sepsis spectrum. Early identification of deterioration allows focus to be placed on the patient and not a definition and enables clinicians to get ahead of lagging indicators that are often used to define sepsis.
Getting ahead of patient deterioration is a patient safety imperative. Doing so effectively helps the patient population at large, while also tackling the challenge of early sepsis detection and intervention head-on. An approach based on identifying patients in need of intervention, and directing resources to their care, can have patient safety benefits that go beyond a strictly sepsis-directed effort.
Real-time alerting to patient deterioration
The Rothman Index is a widely-published predictive software which integrates vital signs, lab tests, heart rhythms, and nursing assessment data from a hospital’s electronic medical record system in real-time to provide a measure of patient acuity. The Rothman Index empowers organizations to transform healthcare through the intelligent use of data. It provides accurate, actionable insights at both the patient and population level. From community hospitals to world-class health systems, the FDA-cleared clinical decision support tools are proven to help deliver better operational, clinical, and financial outcomes.
Rothman Index can help you deliver more proactive patient care.
Dive into the details

The greatest advances in healthcare have taken place because somebody, somewhere was on a mission. Ours began decades ago in the early days of the space program when our founders joined with high-performing teams of NASA scientists and engineers to develop the first cardiac monitoring systems for astronauts. Then as now, there are no limits to what people can achieve when working together.
