General Sagitta Questions
Sagitta defers to the clinician completely. Sagitta offers decision-support for sepsis, using evidence-based, cutting-edge guidelines to help your clinicians apply their judgement in a rapid and efficient manner.
Sagitta defers to the clinician and clinical judgment. Sagitta is also completely customizable; if a patient is deemed as non-septic based on chronic changes, those changes can be edited to have Sagitta screen based on other changes or set the threshold for those anomalies at a different tolerance.

Yes, all vital signs and labs are imported from the EMR to prevent duplication of work for the provider. This ensures a rapid screening process that is easy-to-use and efficient.
Sagitta only requires clinical input from bedside providers to increase specificity of sepsis screening.
No. Sagitta is designed to prevent the decompensation of patients with sepsis. Patients with undiagnosed sepsis decompensate rapidly and require multiple nurses and advanced level providers for stabilization. This takes more time and personnel than screening the patient for sepsis.
Sagitta integrates directly into the usual bedside assessment of every patient without adding “one more thing to do.” Sagitta is designed to save time in coordinating care and decrease the burden of patient assessment while accomplishing the goal of accurate, rapid sepsis screening.
Sagitta was developed out of the need for tertiary, acute-care patients at the largest medical centers, and, at the heart of its design, takes into consideration common problems such as alert fatigue, high false-positive rates, and particularly unique population requirements. Screening parameters, thresholds, and their usage are customizable for a hospital, groups of hospitals, and even for individual patients. Screening parameters and thresholds are automatically adjusted for known conditions like ESLD and ESRD.
Sagitta is created by doctors and clinicians. Its role is to fit directly into the normal workflow of practitioners. There is no need for additional rounding, additional sign-outs, or even a change in the assessment of the patient. No additional care plans are needed. Sagitta can push documents to your EMR. This data can be placed in the patient’s medical record, just like a CT scan report or EKG report would be documented.
