    Background/ Session Overview:

    1. Current functionality (both ASAP and IP) and best practices / recommendations from both a MD and RN perspective. This should cover: using the predictive model for identification, RN screening, regulatory data elements required to support auditing (start time, end time, denial documentation, etc), MD notification, MD documentation, etc).
    2. Future planning – what are the areas of focus for improving build / functionality in future releases? We heard about the recent JAMA article that had a negative review of Epic’s predictive model and would like to hear any updates on changes in the model based on that review.
    3. Round robin discussion on challenges WIEUG orgs have with sepsis-related functionality, wish-list items, recommendations, etc.
