HQI Resources Support Hospital Efforts to Improve Sepsis Detection

Hospital Quality Institute (HQI) and CHPSO – in partnership with hospitals across the state – are highlighting resources and tools to drive improvement in sepsis detection as part of Sepsis Awareness Month. Tools and resources available through HQI and CHPSO include data on sepsis performance and a report from a recent sepsis roundtable discussion. In addition, HQI will host a breakout session addressing sepsis at its 2018 annual conference, to be held in October.

California hospitals have been driving improvement in sepsis care, leading to improved survival of this life-threatening disease. Statewide, California hospitals strictly adhere to evidence-based identification and treatment protocols. More sepsis resources can be found on the CHPSO website.
