In 2016, IPSO founding CHA hospitals and a National Expert Advisory Committee began work to reduce mortality from severe sepsis and improve survivor outcomes. Their efforts focused on how to identify sepsis earlier and initiate more timely treatment. The first two years of implementing changes demonstrated that the strategies IPSO participants created were succeeding.
Forty IPSO hospitals, representing 74% of the collaborative participants, submitted complete data for the interim analysis period. An IPSO representative presented a poster summarizing results at the 2019 Pediatric Academic Society meeting.

IPSO SMART aims for mortality and hospital-onset sepsis, originally based on best available evidence, can now be revised based on IPSO’s large national data sets.
