Houston Methodist Expands Rothman Index Use for Global Clinical Surveillance

To improve patient outcomes and further its mission to provide high quality, cost-effective healthcare that delivers the best value to the people it serves, Houston Methodist has upgraded its Rothman Index global clinical surveillance technology. Houston Methodist comprises a leading academic medical center in the Texas Medical Center, six community hospitals and one specialty hospital serving the Greater Houston area.

Katherine Walsh, Chief Nursing Officer at Houston Methodist, says, "The Rothman Index has become ingrained in our workflow and outcomes measurement. We have a Rothman Index Champion's Meeting that provides a forum for team members to share examples of ?safe catches.'"

Houston Methodist implemented the Rothman Index in March 2016 and has been a valued development partner, achieving outcomes including a 32 percent risk-adjusted mortality reduction and 11 percent sepsis mortality reduction the first year of implementation.

It can detect patient deterioration hours or days earlier than existing scores and systems.

Houston Methodist team members will share their powerful results at PeraHealth's TRENDS 2019 Customer Conference on September 26-27, in Baltimore.
