This first in a series of three webinar programs is presented by Home Care Association of NYS (HCA), IPRO, US Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, Sepsis Alliance The Rory Staunton Foundation, Deputy Secretary for Health & Human Services NYS, and the NYS Department of Health to guide home care providers on the adoption, integration and use of the HCA Adult Sepsis Screening and SBAR Tool in patient care. The HCA Quality Committee and its subgroup on sepsis has been diligently working for the past two years to create, vet and refine this home care sepsis screening tool. The tool is a national first for home care, and a national first for sepsis. The HCA workgroup was comprised of home care clinicians, supplemented by prominent sepsis physicians, the National Sepsis Alliance, and other key sources. This tool is being utilized within the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Special Innovation Project - Community Based Sepsis Initiative led by IPRO in the Albany and Syracuse Hospital Referral Regions (HRRs) in NYS. The tool was featured as a potential national blueprint at a National “New Ideas” Forum on Sepsis sponsored by the Rory Staunton Foundation, and HCA is in discussions with other states and key New York stakeholders about the tool’s promise.
