“…Epic sepsis model poorly predicts sepsis.” – JAMA June 21, 2021

This study reports that “the Epic Sepsis Model poorly predicts sepsis; its widespread adoption despite poor performance raises fundamental concerns about sepsis management on a national level.”

A New Hope

“However – Epic is a wonderful EHR.
Luminare’s sepsis alert & workflow management system addresses gaps in this widely used system.”

– Dr. Velamuri, M.D.

Epic is one of the most widely used systems and has a very broad set of capabilities. Just like other very complex systems, point software solutions are built to allow us to get into the depth of sepsis process improvement. Sagitta by Luminare helps hospitals by quickly identifying patterns and either prevents sepsis or ensures timely treatment to get patients home faster.

Luminare is actively working with Epic on an interoperability showcase to show how their system, Sagitta, interacts and aids Epic users in the detection and treatment of sepsis.

“However – Epic is a wonderful EHR, but point solutions are needed for bedside quality improvement and care. Luminare’s sepsis alert & workflow management system addresses gaps in this widely used system.” – Dr. Velamuri, M.D.

Luminare will be presenting our Sagitta solution with Epic at HIMSS 2021. Luminare will have a kiosk at C200-11 and will be presenting our interoperable solution with Epic at Booth C200-131.
