2022 Stronger - PH322 - Lactate and INR Dashboarding to Action
At Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, we recognized that patients on warfarin with an international normalized ratio (INR) greater than five and sepsis patients with no lactate drawn within the first 12 hours led to increased mortality and length of stay. We developed patient-level dashboards that visualize the timeline surrounding each identified fallout. A new case appearing on the dashboard activates multidisciplinary teams to review and provide feedback to all involved parties for each event. This real-time, continuous learning model for each fallout has improved both our warfarin INR and sepsis lactate metric values.
