Register for Statewide Technical Assistance, Q&A Call for Sepsis Tool Users on June 4

Sepsis faculty leaders from IPRO and HCA will be conducting a statewide technical assistance and Q&A call for all users of the HCA sepsis tool.

The call-in is scheduled for Monday, June 4.  It will begin at 10:30 a.m. and run until noon. Faculty will include clinical and program representatives from IPRO and HCA.

All HCA Sepsis users, including those who have filed sepsis use agreements (and are using the tool), as well as those who have filed and are in process of implementation, are encouraged to participate in this call. Call in with your questions, comments, experiences, suggestions, best practices, challenges and support needs.

Please register using the online link at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/June4sepsiscall.  Dial-in information will be sent to you in advance of the call using the e-mail address submitted with your registration.

If your agency has not yet filed a user-agreement for the HCA sepsis tool, you can do so by downloading the document on our resources page at http://stopsepsisathomeny.org/tools-and-resources or by e-mailing us at sepsistool@hcanys.org.

Meanwhile, HCA continues working diligently with IPRO, the Rory Staunton Foundation for Sepsis Prevention, the national Sepsis Alliance, the state hospital association (HANYS), the state Department of Health, and additional partners across the continuum on sepsis. This includes our work on an all-partner, statewide sepsis summit (for home care, hospitals, physicians, EMS, managed care, and additional key sectors and state and national health officials and sepsis leaders) planned for early fall.

The HCA sepsis initiative continues to be featured across sectors in New York State and across the country. Legislation was also just introduced by Senate Health Committee Chairman Kemp Hannon, S.8669 and S.8620, to support this tool and effort.

HCA’s work also continues to be supported through the New York State Health Foundation, which awarded HCA a grant to promote statewide training and adoption of HCA’s sepsis tool by all home care providers in New York.
