ML #21 - Central Line Infection Prevention at IU Health, with Kristen Kelley
Hosted by Spencer Nicol and Shufang Ci
July 20, 2017 - 25min
Central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) cause increased patient harm and millions of dollars of excess healthcare costs annually. Kristen Kelley, Director of Infection Prevention at Indiana University Health (IUH), is on the front lines of this battle. Join us as we discuss 1. The impact this hospital-acquired infection has on patient outcomes 2. The evidence-based approach hospitals take to reduce CLABSIs 3. Innovative ideas to prevent CLABSIs through risk prediction methodology (as IUH is one of the first health systems to use a machine learning-based model to aid nurses in preventing CLABSI)
