POC Advisor sends alerts directly to the point of care via mobile devices and clinical portals. Alerts fall into three categories:

  • Surveillance diagnosis—Real-time warnings identify possible cases of SIRS, sepsis, severe sepsis, severe sepsis with hypotension, & septic shock. 
  • Advice—Treatment advice is tailored to specific co-morbid conditions for each patient based on the latest medical evidence & IHI guidelines.
  • Reminders—To close the loop on patient treatment, every alert requires acknowledgement of care or escalation per site protocols.
