Cerner’s Sepsis Identification and Management Alert System continuously screens ED and Inpatient data. Patient data is fed near real time into Cerner’s Health Intent Cloud Services. These results are then evaluated based on the St. Johns Sepsis Agent Algorithm. The Sepsis alert algorithm identifies potential SIRS and Sepsis patients. Upon the recognition of SIRS or SEPSIS criteria, alerts are then sent to the care team. Then the care team will document and take action as advised by the Sepsis advisor to begin treatment according to CMS guidelines.
