System-wide Sepsis Improvement Implementation University of North Carolina

View the webinar recording and access materials.

When University of North Carolina Hospitals looked carefully at mortality in 2014, failure to rescue rose to the top as a key issue, and patients with sepsis were a key population, with 45 percent of inpatient deaths associated with a sepsis diagnosis. In a bid to reduce raw mortality at UNC Hospitals by 10 percent by June 2016, the system is developing a system-wide sepsis improvement project, beginning in the UNC Children’s Hospital.
