Charleston, SC (PRWEB) May 09, 2017
Verge Health, a leading provider of governance, compliance and risk management solutions for healthcare, was recognized in the recent KLAS report, Sepsis 2017: Which Vendors Can Help?
For health systems who use the Patient and Employee Safety module within the Converge platform, the company, a performance-based analytics vendor, was validated for helping providers on three fronts: reducing mortality rate, increasing internal compliance and reducing length of stay.
“About a third of sepsis patients die, which is significantly better than it used to be. And patients that get early treatment have a much better chance of survival. Often, when patients don’t get timely treatment it’s a system problem that contributes. Our clients are using our software on their journey to reduce the number of patients that get late treatment to zero. Because getting to zero means making the system support the provider in every single case,” says Mark Crockett, MD and chief executive officer of Verge.
“Up to half of all hospital deaths are due to sepsis, according to research published in The Journal of the American Medical Association,” notes KLAS analyst Kody Hansen, who co-authored the report with KLAS analyst Jon Christensen. “While this is an initial report, KLAS is committed to ongoing research on sepsis solutions as we seek to help vendors and providers work together to cut down on mortality rates due to sepsis.”
