Complimentary Educational Workshop at SCCM 2016

The Revealing Signs of

Outdated Predictive Models in the ICU -

and How This Situation Can be Remedied

In addition to displaying our All New Severity Scoring Simulator, ICUTracker® ICU Database and GlucoStabilizer® Insulin Management System at Booth #1011, we invite you attend an educational workshop and discussion on:

  • The use of SMRs to compare ICU performance

  • Why using the right predictive model is important

  • A glimpse into the next generation of ICU metrics

Predictive models decline in accuracy over time, giving the continual impression of satisfactory ICU performance - when in reality, the opposite could be true. This was suspected for two commonly used predictive equations: hospital mortality and ICU length of stay (LOS). In order to test these equations, a decision was made to update the predictions using more current data.

The resulting equations, called ACUITY 2016, drastically improved accuracy when compared to the leading severity scoring system, with observed and predicted values being nearly identical. These new models also exhibited improved precision throughout the range of severity, and they gave a better snapshot of an ICU's adjusted mortality, LOS, and duration of mechanical ventilation.

Presented by Prescient Healthcare Consulting and sponsored by MDN, this workshop is intended for anyone interested in assessing assessing patient outcomes and quality improvement.
