SystmOne software has given GPs more than 1,500 ‘red flag’ warnings where sepsis ought to be considered, the GP system supplier TPP has announced.

Introduced in August 2015, the protocol triggers a prompt to consider sepsis based on text the GP enters in the patient record, any measurements taken and any coded data in the patient’s shared record.

Since its launch, the protocol has triggered prompts over 40,000 times. In 20,000 cases the GP followed the decision support process all the way to the end, which resulted in an initial warning 2,000 times and the ‘red flag’ warning 1,500 times, said TPP. The sepsis protocol is currently automatically enabled for all SystmOne GPs, nationwide. It can be disabled, on a practice level, if required.

Chris Bates, Head of Data and Analytics at TPP, commented. “Evidence shows that in the most severe sepsis cases the risk of death increases by 8% for every hour delay in administering antibiotics, so early intervention is vital. The analysis of our protocol shows that if GPs can intervene early, and act promptly, some of these deaths can hopefully be avoided.”

The UK Sepsis Trust estimates around 44,000 lives are lost to sepsis each year in the UK, more than cancer. Of the deaths more than 1,000 are of children.
