The Rothman Index for Sepsis Detection


The Rothman Index for Sepsis Detection

Identify at-risk patients to drive earlier intervention

Leveraging the Rothman Index’s surveillance solutions helps providers identify patients at risk for sepsis present on admission and sepsis acquired during the hospital stay. The Rothman Index draws attention to deterioration, including deterioration that may be associated with sepsis. Incorporating the patient’s Rothman Index score on admission into the sepsis screening process assists in identification of at-risk patients who may be septic on admission. Including the Rothman Index deterioration warnings into protocols for sepsis screening during the patient’s stay can help support effective identification of sepsis that is so critical to timely intervention and improved outcomes.
