Read The Healthcare Quality Book, Chapter 7. Page 204, Case Study 3: Action. Answer the following case study discussion questions:
- Describe the relationship between the institution’s percent mortality in sepsis and the change in time to administration of antibiotics. Why was a health IT solution superior to a more manual process in this case?
- In this case, health IT made direct observations of the care provided to patients with sepsis. In what ways could these observations have provided additional information that would not have been detected in data abstracted from the EHR?
High-quality, thoughtful, and appropriate responses to the discussion question prompts are expected. For complete, high-quality analysis, each of these written work products should approximate 4 pages using 1-inch margins, double-spacing, and 12-point font, and APA formatting. The paper must include a cover and a reference page. You should properly cite any material sourced from research.
