The Union

Local physicians have a new tool that will alert them if one of their patients may be in danger of sepsis, a severe and progressive infection that can be deadly.

Made possible by the new electronic medical record system at Dignity Health Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital (SNMH), the new tool is officially known as the Cerner Sepsis Biosurveillance Program.
