Dascena, Inc. announces improved patient outcomes at Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital with the implementation InSight, a machine learning based algorithm for sepsis treatment. The introduction of InSight led to sepsis related mortality falling 9.85% and a hospital length of stay reduction of 12.4%, compared to baseline. Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital (NMH) is a community hospital located in Eastern Texas. It is the only hospital in Deep East Texas to have Joint Commission-certified stroke centers, a Level III trauma center and NICU, and a standalone inpatient rehabilitation center.
InSight, developed by Dascena, predicts the onset of sepsis using only patient vital signs available in the EHR, improving the detection of sepsis and the timing of treatment administration.
