Earlier detection for faster, more effective treatment

The eSepsis in-hospital telehealth program monitors patients at risk for sepsis. By automating sepsis monitoring for patients, the Philips eSepsis program can help clinical teams detect early signs of sepsis, so they can begin assessment and treatment plans quickly. With early detection and treatment, patients have a better chance of staying out of the ICU, and the overall costs associated with these hospital stays are reduced. 

Program features and services

 

The eSepsis program uses the proven Sepsis Prompt algorithm—a key feature of the eICU program-that is optimized specifically for lower acuity patients. The eSepsis program is available as a standalone offering for patients in non-telehealth covered beds and the ED, to screen for sepsis throughout their stay, regardless of what hospital unit they are in.
