Leveraging Technology and Telehealth to Improve Sepsis Care for Children

Sepsis Awareness Month Special Presentation

Minutes count when a child presents with suspected sepsis. Learn how several innovative solutions for the rapid, accurate diagnosis and treatment of pediatric sepsis patients are emerging through the promise of technology.

Webinar speakers include Dr. Russell McCulloh, Children's Hospital & Medical Center Omaha, who will present study results on how PedsGuide, a smartphone application for clinical decision support standardized the evaluation of suspected sepsis in infants across 128 clinical sites.

Dr. Christina Olson, Children's Hospital Colorado will provide an overview of the current landscape of pediatric telehealth as well as telehealth models that can be applied to pediatric sepsis care.

In addition, Emily Tooley, Children's Hospital Association, will share a new web-based Diagnostic Safety Toolkit for reducing diagnostic errors through case learning, a team approach to diagnostic timeouts, and other tools that can be integrated into sepsis education and improvement initiatives.
