The State of Healthcare in Today’s Intensive Care Unit

  • In today’s Intensive Care Unit 1 out of 4 patients experience medical errors during their stay in the ICU (Adverse Events in Hospitals: National Incidence Among Medicare Beneficiaries, DHHS - OIG, November 2010, OEI-06-09-00090, Daniel R. Levinson – Inspector General)
  • There are currently 150 serious errors/1000 patient days. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16096443; The Critical Care Safety Study: The incidence and nature of adverse events and serious medical errors in intensive care.
  • Patients suffer 36 preventable adverse events/1000 patient days (page 50 Table G-1, Adverse Events in Hospitals: National Incidence Among Medicare Beneficiaries, DHHS - OIG, November 2010, OEI-06-09-00090, Daniel R. Levinson – Inspector General)
  • Society of Critical Care Medicine reports an average estimated cost of $10,000/day in an ICU. Errors generate costs up to $49 billion/year from preventable medical errors (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23155743) The economics of health care

AWARE testimonials

«A central task for effective critical care is the rapid synthesis of massive amounts of data…» «Often it seems that the electronic tools at our disposal make this more complicated than necessary. The end result is measurable: information overload and frustration for clinical teachers and learners alike. AWARE, built by clinicians on principles of human factors engineering, is a dramatic example of the true promise of the EMR era. The amount of data behind AWARE is vast, but unlike any other system I’ve used, AWARE shows me what I need to see, at the point of care, organized in the way I think. As a result, I can approach patients in a more standardized and organized fashion.“
