HCA & IPRO Invite You to 7/18 Webinar on Data Collection Process for HCA Sepsis Tool to Share Outcomes

HCA and our partners at IPRO are holding an important July 18 webinar training program (from 1-2 p.m.) on IPRO’s data collection process for all current and prospective users of HCA’s sepsis screening tool.

This free webinar training will outline the process for submission of your agency’s data from the HCA Adult Sepsis Screening Tool into the REDCap Data Collection system. Registration is required here by Monday, July 16.

While the webinar is geared for individuals who have signed a user agreement to use HCA’s sepsis tool, this webinar is also open to individuals who have not yet signed an agreement but plan to do so and begin the process of implementing the tool and collecting data

A user agreement link is available on our Stop Sepsis at Home New Yorkwebsite here. Remember that you must meet the training prerequisites before HCA can authorize the agreement. The agreement and questions about it can be sent to sepsistool@hcanys.org.

The July 18 webinar will cover the following:

  • Introduction to REDCap: Setting up a user, logging in, locating the HCA Adult Sepsis Screening Tool site, and Data Access Groups.
  • Process for entering a row of data from the HCA Adult Sepsis Screening Tool
  • Process for bulk uploading data for large data sets from EHR.
  • Use of the REDCap App on your tablet or phone for point-of-service data entry

Who Should Attend: All home health agencies utilizing the HCA Adult Sepsis Screening Tool should attend this webinar as well as individuals wishing to sign the user agreement.

Please invite the following representatives from your organization to attend:

  • Staff who will be responsible to upload/enter your agency’s data into REDCap
  • Staff who will be responsible for oversight of data entry and review of agency data in REDCap
  • Staff who will be responsible to train staff and serve as resource for data entry

Data entry is set to begin, so please do not miss out on this opportunity to receive this live demonstration.

This webinar and data collection process is part of HCA’s Stop Sepsis at Home initiative, supported with a grant from the New York State Health Foundation, to train and coordinate use of the sepsis screening tool in the home care setting. Your data is vital to the success of this effort and our reporting on the incredible outcomes being achieved by providers in the field.
