Proactive Rounding Based on Clinical Surveillance: A Team Approach for Rapid Response and Improved Patient Outcomes

LIVE WEBINAR | September 6, 2018 | 2:00 p.m. ET

Hospitals are leveraging the Rothman Index (RI) to re-invent the Rapid Response Team (RRT) model and drive earlier clinical intervention. Through early intervention, it is possible to significantly reduce mortality, ICU bounce backs, unplanned transfers to ICU, and codes outside the ICU. By using a proactive rounding model guided by clinical surveillance, leading hospitals have found a successful strategy for achieving the long-awaited benefits of RRTs.

When a clinical team conducts proactive rounding with the Rothman Index (RI), clinicians can focus attention on at-risk patients and re-establish appropriate care levels before there is a patient crisis. In this webinar, we will review foundational information about the RI, and two partner hospitals will share their approaches to integrating proactive rounding with their clinical workflows - leading to powerful results.

PeraHealth Special Report: Reducing Risk: Leveraging the Rothman Index as an Integrated Risk Management Strategy

Health system risk managers play a unique and multi-layered role across the inpatient care enterprise.  Sitting at the nexus of employee and patient safety, liability, and the health system’s reputation, risk management leaders play a vital function. The core of their work is to implement programs that avert risk, and to manage a robust reporting program when events do occur.  With this in mind, PeraHealth is pleased to offer a special webinar focused on how risk managers can deploy the Rothman Index to proactively identify and manage potential events that could lead to patient harm and subsequent litigation.  The core focus of the webinar: how can predictive, real-time clinical surveillance enable hospitals to reduce their overall risk profile?

Predicting Unplanned Readmissions With the Pediatric Rothman Index

We are delighted that nationally recognized clinical informaticist Dr. William Feaster, Chief Medical Informatics Officer at CHOC, will join us for the Rothman Society’s second Research Focus webinar, as we turn our attention to reducing unplanned readmissions among children.  Dr. Feaster will be joined by Louis Ehwerhemuepha, PhD, one of the lead data scientists who helped develop CHOC’s model.  Together they will share the story behind the development of the model, the data components that make up the calculation, and review their criteria for additional sites to engage in further validation of their work.
