The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) has released the nation’s first public performance report to analyze hospital-specific management of sepsis involving adults and children, including risk-adjusted mortality data. The NYSDOH report is the culmination of a three year effort at data collection, measurement and analysis -under the auspices of a statewide clinical advisory group—aimed at improving sepsis detection and outcomes at acute care hospitals across the state of New York. The NYSDOH report evaluates the extent to which hospital emergency rooms initiate protocol-driven treatments for all sepsis patients; adult patients receive required treatments within three hours of hospitalization and within six hours; and whether children receive vital treatments within one hour of hospitalization.
