Basildon Trust cuts cardiac arrests by 75%

An NHS Trust has reduced cardiac arrests by more than three quarters since it went live with an early warning system. The Trust is now redesigning clinical pathways using the same solution to spot potentially fatal conditions including AKI and sepsis

Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has reduced cardiac arrests by more than three quarters since it went live with an early warning system. The Trust is now redesigning clinical pathways using the same solution to spot potentially fatal conditions including acute kidney injury (AKI) and sepsis.

When Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust started to deploy Alcidion’s early warning solution, Patientrack, in April 2016, as part of its deteriorating patient programme, it had big ambitions to make a significant difference to patient safety and the working lives of nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals. 

The impact the programme has achieved has been significant – from a major reduction in cardiac arrests, through to hours of time saved for nurses every day. The project is empowering nurses to call for help sooner when patients need it, and it has also meant that the Mid and South Essex University Hospital group has now created its first chief nursing information officer, Sam Neville, who holds the responsibility for embedding digital technology, innovation and forward thinking throughout the Trust’s clinical services.
