Collaborative Held to Decrease Sepsis Incidence Across Wisconsin

April 30, 2019

AboutHealth kicked off their Sepsis Collaborative April 23-24 at Gundersen’s Integrated Center for Education in La Crosse. AboutHealth is a Wisconsinbased clinically integrated network comprised of some of the largest health systems in the state—Aspirus, Advocate Aurora Health, Bellin Health, Gundersen Health System, ProHealth Care and ThedaCare. WHA is excited to partner with the collaborative as their work will improve compliance with the sepsis bundles to decrease the incidence of sepsis and improve sepsis patient outcomes across Wisconsin.

Physicians, nurses, pharmacists, quality personnel, and administrative leaders gathered to identify, share, adopt and adapt best practices and start building their sepsis workplan. Vigorous discussions took place surrounding current innovations and interventions in sepsis diagnosis and treatment.

Participants were also treated to keynote addresses by WHA Physician Improvement Advisor Bobby Redwood, MD, as well as Dr. Hallie Prescott of the University of Michigan. Attendees leveraged their expertise and raised great questions during the Q&A with the two physicians.
