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.
